Wisconsin Adventures: Jelly Beans, Cheese, and Fun

Our apologies, dear readers, for not updating ALL weekend. We were in a part of Wisconsin that didn't cater to the internet, but boy did we have fun.

On our way up, we made two pit stops with our tag along M. The first, an Arby's with an interesting wall (see photo below). The second stop was at the Albanese Candy Factory in Merrillville, Indiana. M was blown away by the giant chocolate fountain found inside, and like us, recommends this as a stop for anyone passing through Northwestern Indiana.

After reaching our destination in Wisconsin, we spent the weekend enjoying drinks and good company. We also made a special trip to the Jelly Belly Factory where we enjoyed a free tour (less exciting than it sounds, since it's basically watching videos while taking an electric train ride) and free samples. Afterward, we made a group trip to the grocery store where we picked out some delicious Wisconsin cheeses and food for the weekend feast.

All in all a great trip. So, how was your weekend?

Happy adventuring!
