Food find: Market Square Cheese

Another great thing about a vacation to the Dells is Wisconsin cheese and chocolate. Maybe I'm just a die hard tourist, but you really can't leave Wisconsin without partaking in some cheese.

Tim and I made a short stop at Market Square Cheese in Lake Delton, Wisc. It's a cute little shop that sells general convenience store stuff along with cheese, homemade sweets and mementos. Tim and I got a pack of cheese curds, again, and it was quite tasty.

Also, we picked up some handmade peanut butter cups -- they taste so much better than he one you get in the checkout line. The chocolate was hardened and a bit crunchy, compared with the creamy and pliable peanut butter center. It was an interesting textural element, plus the chocolate was of a better quality than the store-bought peanut and chocolate snacks.

There was also all kinds of fudge, which I will have to try the next time we're in the neighborhood.

I remember being in the Dells years ago and stopping at a cheese shop as well as eating out at Paul Bunyans...don't know if either is still there or not...just a typical tourist at a family restaurant.

Hey Kelly,

Have you been to Mars Cheese Castle in Kenosha right off of I-94? It's a little kitschy, but that's what I like about the place.

Okay, now you're making me hungry! Cheese and chocolate--two of my favorite things in the whole world.
