Good Food, Family and Fudge - Frankenmuth, Michigan

On Saturday (7/4) we spent some time with my sister Vicki, brother Scott and his family.

What better place to meet up and eat up than Frankenmuth, Michigan. Home of Bronner's Christmas Store (largest in the world) plus Bavarian Inn and Zehnder's World Famous Chicken houses.

The feud of the chicken houses go back ages. It is a true Coke/Pepsi rivalry that will split families in two when deciding where to eat. Even though both are now owned by one family the divide is real and both take great pride on who is best in this town.

Do you prefer Zehnder's

or do you prefer Bavarian Inn?
Bronner's Christmas store has been my North Pole since I was a kid. Mr. Bronner who owned Bronner's was a very respected representative of Michigan and catching a glimpse of him during working hours was like a Santa sighting. I finally caught up with him years ago for a photo opt, it is one of my prized shots.

There is tons to do at Frankenmuth. From horse drawn carriages to home made fudge.  It very much a tourist place to go but if you are from Michigan and beyond you still take time to drop on by every now and again.

Note my patriotic t-shirt matches the Fourth of July float.
