One of my favorite places in the world is Vermont. I spent four of the best years of my life living there. When I go back to visit friends, I spend weeks leading up to my trip imagining all the places I plan to eat at. Some of the places are no longer and some have changed, but all in all, Vermont has some pretty incredible food.
My no-brainer stop on is always New World Tortilla. They have an amazing Thai Chicken Wrap that cannot be beat. They are closed on Sundays so I have to plan strategically so I can consume as much as possible on Saturday. The Thai Chicken Wrap is a burrito filled with grilled chicken, ginger slaw, rice and spicy peanut sauce. The combination compliments itself incredibly. I've order Thai Chicken Wraps at other places and not a one touches this.
My BFF Kelly and I used to ski all day, grab a Thai Chicken Wrap and eat it down on Lake Champlain watching the sunset. That is a perfect day all around.
Next, I ended up visiting Ben & Jerries and Champlain Chocolates. Both hit the spot for dessert!
On Sunday, we ventured into Stowe and visited Cold Hollow Cider Mill. They have the best cider donuts I've ever had (and I don't even like donuts!). They are light and fresh, and the best when warm! Cold Hollow as incredible cider as well as a great selection of samples of salsas, jams and dips. One of our favorite things about Cold Hollow Cider Mill is their giant checkers board.
I also picked up some peanut butter... Vermont made Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter. Try it, you won't be sorry!
One of my favorite souveniors from my trip to Vermont is a jar of Vermont Maple Syrup. A few years ago, I visited Kelly and experienced a sugar house and the maple syrup process. It's pretty incredible. I highly suggest visiting a sugar house and seeing the process! Randy, their friend who runs the sugar house, has some of the best syrup in the state. I'm so excited to break this jar open!
And I'll just leave you with a few of my favorite pictures from the weekend:
