For the past 15 or so years, whenever my family or my friends make a trip to Sonora to my mom's cabin, we (almost) ALWAYS stop here on our way home! At least, (I) want to stop here, but sometimes the rush home wins over... I haven't tried the cheese here (gasp), but what always makes me want to come back: 1. Sarsaparilla. Wow, I never knew there was a second "r" in that until now... anyways, this is the ONLY sugar-filled soft drink I will consume. A tasty, refreshing taste of childhood memories in a good old glass bottle. 2. CHEESE STICKS!!!!! This is the first place I had ever had cheese sticks, and they are literally one of my favorite snacks in the world. Yes, Trader Joe's sells their own cheese sticks, and they pretty much taste the same, but nostalgia wins over all. I dunno, something about buying them directly from a CHEESE FACTORY just makes them taste better! 3. Farm Of course, for me, this is my #1 reason for stopping here. I LOVE animals... I never wanted to leave whenever we stopped here as a kid... and the struggle to find quarters in the car were beyond satisfied when you exchange them for farm feed and your hands are covered in goat saliva... yes, satisfying. Come here around Halloween and they'll have the cutest carved pumpkins, too!!!
