Are you going to Maine, one of our very favorite States in America? GOOD! Then follow DocChuck and wife (Doctor E.) along Route 1
as we spot (and explore) some of the best RoadFood signs across America:
Here we stop at Wild Blueberry Land
in Columbia Falls, Maine, billed as the 'World's Largest Blueberry'
. We enjoyed some fresh hot coffee and perhaps the very best fresh-baked blueberry pie on Planet Earth. Oh, yes, we bundled up a bunch of "Blueberry" delicacies to take back to Maryland with us: cookies, cakes, scones, chese, jellies, jams, etc.
Movin' on ....
We spot Raye's Mustard Mill and Pantry Store
here in Eastport, Maine,
AFTER we passed it. A quick U-turn, and we are BACK at the famous mustard dispensary that has been featured on television food shows and blogs all over the American airwaves. We stocked up on a dozen or so jars (assorted varieties) of the BEST mustards (especially the jalapeno mustard) on the planet, some mighty good snacks and a couple of great sandwiches for our continued adventure along the famous ROUTE 1
coast highway in Maine.
YES, here we pull our trusty Optima
into the parking lot of the famous Mike's Clam Shack
in Wells, Maine, and parked underneath one of our favorite RoadFood signs. Unfortunately, the food did not measure up to the absolutely wonderful ambience found inside the restaurant. The lobster rolls were cold, the lobster rubbery, and very possibly the WORST lobster roll we have ever had (the $13.95 Lunch Special). Maybe they were having a bad day.
