Another place from my happy childhood memories that I wanted to show the girls. Growing up, my sister and I would come here to buy penny candy and extra sour pickles. I was pleasantly surprised by all the new products they carry there now…

These pickles are so sour they’ll make your eyes water. They take a LONG time to eat (they’re full cucumber sized).
A country store in New England that doesn’t sell local maple syrup is not a real country store (IMO). One of my favorite middle school field trips was when we went to a maple tree farm and got to collect sap from the maple trees (and learn about the whole process).
