A Minnesota friend of mine did this really cool “Christmas Snackle Box” to take to work and share holiday treats. I had never seen anything like this before!
I thought this was such a unique idea! Is this a Minnesota thing?
If you are looking for a fun and unique way to share some Christmas treats this is simple and cool!
First of all, you just buy one of those Fishing Tackle Tray Boxes like you find on Amazon for about $5 bucks.
You can get different size boxes. Some have adjustable dividers to make it easier to customize.
Run the box through the dishwasher so it gets a really good high-temperature sanitizing.
Then you simply fill the different little compartments with all sorts of Christmas cookies and candies.
I've also seen it where people do the same thing with meats, veggies, fruits, and cheeses for a handy "Charcuterie Snackle Box".
I would think that you could also fill the Holiday Snackle Box with assorted colorful treats, wrap it up, and give it as a thoughtful Christmas gift or stocking stuffer!
What a great easy to do and enjoy holiday idea!
Inside Minnesota's Largest Candy Store
I had been to Minnesota's Largest Candy Store once before, but they did some pretty cool things since the last time I was there. They added a bunch of superheroes, Star Wars stuff, and a candy band.
According to their Facebook page
, Jim's Apple Farm is actually how the now huge candy store got its start. It is located in Jordan, MN and you can't miss it. It is a huge yellow building.
Even though candy is mentioned in the name, they have a little bit of everything. They have fresh baked pies and cookies and fudge. We walked in and it smelled amazing!
They also have the largest selection of sodas! Then there is chocolate and taffy and gummies and chips and puzzles and games. So much stuff!
They even have a Zoltar machine like in the movie, Big. I had to check that out. He told me the only helping hand is at the end of my arm. Gee, thanks Zoltar.
There were even crickets and worms! Not gummy worms, but actual worms.
They also have candy from all over the world!
The store is seasonal, however. November is their last month of operation for the season.
