I hope you managed to get cheese curds. Deep-fried cheese curds are the real deal, but regular ones are still pretty awesome.
What about frozen custard? Even better than ice cream.
Alas, there were no cheese curds or frozen custard in the random gas station in the middle of nowhere. I think I was kind of lucky to find cheese actually. It was just kind of stuffed in next to the sodas as like a, hmmm, perhaps we should have some cheese in this gas station sort of afterthought.
I had frozen custard once in Missouri, but I have yet to try cheese curds. Next time!
