My kids and I were watching the show "UNWRAPPED" about two weeks ago.. and as we were watching a little blip came on about the "Longest Candy Counter in the World"..surely I'm thinking this store would be in the midwest or even further away.. but we were WRONG!! this little store sets in a little NH town called... none other than.. Littleton! It's name CHUTTERS.
So we planned when our fresh air son got here we would scoot over and check the store out... well.. our actually "scoot" is about an hour and 45 minutes... and the funny part... where we live we have to drive completely through VT to get there!
So it's true.. they have a TON and I mean A TON of candy... However... I wasn't thrilled with the price per/lb and when you tell 6 kids to grab a bag and a glove and get what they want... well... they grab gloves and get what they want.. the end cost... to me.. was NOT impressive! But I know in my heart that we will probably never purposefully take this journey again! Not because the store was horrible.. but because there really isn't anything else surrounding it!
Here is the beginning
Here's a look down the LONG shelf.. now in order for this to be a worlds record.. the shelf has to be ONE piece of wood.. it can not be joined counters!! That's ONE big tree!!
Here's the end!
And candy in-between
All through the store my kids kept telling me I needed to buy this sign... I told them they were delusional and I had no idea WHY they would want me to get that sign!! Some how other's agreed with them.. I didn't buy it.. but maybe.. just maybe I'll make myself one!
Here's the gang at the end...!!
And since we had to ride all through VT to get home.. We made a pit stop at one of my VERY VERY favorite places in the whole wide world....
I love this place.. it's the only place that I'll pay for overpriced chocolate chips or flour or any baking supplies.. because it's King Arthur.. bad huh? So I bought some chocolate chip chunks.. and I will make some GREAT cookies with in the next couple of days!
