We’re driving down the road. We’re in the middle of nowhere. What do you expect to see? Trees, wildlife, other vehicles, the road stretching off into the distance right? How about a candy store?
Yeah, didn’t think so. But that is EXACTLY what we found in the middle of nowhere, nestled amongst the trees.
Anyone else getting a Hansel and Gretel vibe here? Cuz I sure was. There were these signs in the trees saying Candy store so many kilometres and stuff like that. So we’re like, what? A candy store in the middle of the woods? How odd. So of course we stop because we want to see what this candy store has to offer. It’s got all the regular candy store items that you would expect to see. But it also has pickles in vacuum sealed bags. Strange flavours of pickles in vacuum sealed bags. Flavours like jalapeno, Cajun and cheese. It was bizarre. So if you’re ever driving to Barkerville and turn off the road from Quesnel, make sure you stop at the candy store in the middle of nowhere. I promise no witches will try to fatten you up and eat you.
Also along that same road, you will find the ghetto-est looking museum of life.
I don’t think this museum gets much funding.
I’m not even sure if it’s an actual museum of just someone who had a lot of old snowmobiles’ idea of a joke. But it also had this in front of it, next to the road.
I don’t even…what is this? A snowmobile pulling a spaceship? Some people…
I revel in things like this, the cheesiness is overwhelming and it is awesome! One day I want to go on a road trip across the United States and check out all the amazingly awesome road side attractions, like the world’s largest ball of twine …and Foam Henge! Yes it is what you think it is, a foam replica of Stone Henge… it exists and it sounds glorious!
