World's Longest Candy Counter

I didn't make that up either. Chutter's, on Main Street in Lancaster, New Hampshire, is in the Guiness Book for having the longest candy counter in the world. As I write this, I'm chewing on some cherry flavored bubble gum. Next to me is a white bag filled with maple candies, root beer candies, banana gum cigars, mint julep chews and Cow Tales, just to name a few. I also bought barbecue sauce (Kick Yo' Ass Hot), maple hot chocolate, a moose bookmark, moose shaped cookie cutters and cookies n cream fudge.

About Me

My photo
Hi, and welcome to my blog! In my working life I'm a cook, and in my personal life I'm married and have two daughters, plus a Chihuahua named Minnie. I am also a culinary school graduate with a degree in pastry arts. When I have a day off the first thing I think about is getting my camera and hitting the road. I've always loved road trips and I've been carrying a camera since I got a 110 Instamatic for my birthday when I was a kid. So, we get in the car and travel all over seeking out new back roads and new places to visit. At least twice a year we head up to the Northeast Kingdom in Vermont and take in some of the best scenery New England has to offer, and we get to New Hampshire, too. We also do some shorter trips to Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and sometimes even New York state (although it's not in New England) and once in a blue moon, we get to Maine. When I'm not on the road I'm right here at home reading, writing, watching some classic television like Andy Griffith, or Minnie and I are out strolling in the cemeteries enjoying the art and remembering the people.
