The NY Times Likes Its Vacations With Calories

When we think of junk food vacations, Wisconsin isn’t the first place that comes to mind. Central Pennsylvania, that chocolate/pretzel making place? Definitely.

Though in all honesty we’d rather be hanging out in a beach in the Caribbean or Hawaii… But that’s besides the point.

In any case, the New York Times just ran a travel piece on Wisconsin’s “Candy Delta.” Sample graf?

The dueling pistol in this skirmish is the meltaway. A meltaway starts where a 3 Musketeers bar ends: more chocolate on the outside, more chocolate on the inside, denser in the hand, yet lighter in texture. Hughes’s meltaways are the size of a large Lego block; the Oaks version is the Melty-Bar.

With its Art-Deco wrapper and hotel-soap shape, the Melty-Bar is true to its slogan, “The Aristocrat of Candy Bars.” And a version with a healthy dose of malt turns the Melty-Bar into a Malty-Melty.
