Oh, yeah! I remember road trips with the family when i was a kid. On 
a car trip to Florida from Chicago, my brother and i made our parents 
stop for a fortune telling chicken somewhere in the American South. 
Tourist traps are even bigger, flashier, and more impersonal now. 
Nowadays, they have parking lots as big as a shopping center.

But i figure since we usually avoid tourist traps, we'll go to one or 
two, like the Mustard Museum in Mt. Horeb and maybe The House on the 
Rock in Spring Hill.

But i want to get real cheese from a real cheese shop. (do not think 
of Monty Python... do not think of Monty Python... . do not think of 
Monty Python...)

Thanks for all the links, i'll go check them out.

I have no idea what Wisconsin brands there are. We've got our own 
cheese out here in California. I think we're now a bigger dairy state 
than WI is.

Of course, squeaky cheese curds are on our list of Wisconsin 
experiences to have.

Is this a shop or a food item?

A friend of my daughter said we have to try Kopp's Frozen Custard. 
There are only 2 days we'll be near a Kopp's, so one or the other 
will be on our itinerary.
