Our area is so fortunate to have this local gem – The Amish Country Bulk Store. If you haven’t checked them out yet, you need to. Why? The spice rack’s variety and pricing is unreal. Hands down the best prices on individual spices I’ve ever found. The facility itself was so clean that I decided to buy additional bake good items (not on my shopping list, of course) from a local culinary student. The best cannoli cookies I’ve ever tasted. You’re probably thinking, cookies with ricotta cheese, seriously? Yes! The moistest and most delicious cookies that I’ve ever eaten. And don’t get me started on the chips! Their homemade tortilla chips and salsa, which were worth a trip back the next day for additional rations (my family doesn’t share well 🙂 are outstanding! From Amish made cheeses, jams, noodles, granola, and breads, and an assortment of grains, flours, and spices – to salves and ointments – they have it all. Honestly, there are too many goodies to list. I even picked up a gift for a neighbor. Quality items priced right.
To have a specialty bulk food store in this area is a real treat. I think it is worth mentioning that I don’t get paid by the places I write about. I write and share my experiences about stores who, in one way or another, genuinely catch my attention and this store had it. Exceptional, quality-made products plus a super, professional and kind staff that’s educated and ready to answer any question. A trifecta of quality, customer service, and value; this one’s a winner!
