Field Trip Day Part Two

Our story begins with an innocent longing to show my grandparents the factory of Peppermint Place. When we used to go visit them in Price, one of the tradtions was to visit Peppermint Place on the way down there. We would get yummy candy to share. Now that they live in Saratoga, we haven't been there for a while. But I figured they lived close enough to it that we could make a quick trip over there. Jaylene's Lessons From the World Number One: CALL FIRST!!!!!!!
First of all, we hit construction FROM HELL! They diverted us ALL OVER THE PLACE! I was hoping that I could find my way back with all the meandering going on.
After going through that mess, we finally arrived in Alpine and the factory.........is now a My Comfort Store. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe we drove all the way out there to look at some freakin beds!!!!
But then, Brendon to the rescue! He spotted a sign that said "Peppermint Place". I guess they sold half of their factory to the bed store, and moved their retail store across the street. AND they don't let you see them make the candy anymore. BUMMER!!!!!
So at least we got to wander around and pick up some yummy goodies. With all of the menagerie going on, I forgot to get my camera out and take pictures. Oops! So you will have to rely on these vintage photos. At least YOU will get to see how some of the candy is made, which is more than we got to see.
So all of this brewhaha made us HUNGRY! We stopped off at One Man Band Stand in Lehi. Would highly recommend this place, especially the scones. YUMMY! So kids, what have we learned here today? The next time you want to go to a place that you haven't been to in a long time, DO NOT ASSUME EVERYTHING IS THE SAME! Oh....you already knew that? Yeah I know, it takes me a while!!!
