Inside this giant red barn you'll find delicious smells, great tastes and a warm welcoming atmosphere.
Before you even get to the counter you have a chance to try a sample of one of their featured pretzels. You can also check out the Sweet Mustard and Amish Peanut Butter Dipping sauces (which are also available to purchase and take home).
Now on to my personal favorite… the Jalapeno Pretzel. I really love the pretzel itself, but more than that, I love the spice of the delicious jalapeno pepper rings all glued to the pretzel with ooey gooey melted cheese!
If you didn’t have a hard time selecting your pretzel, you will likely have a hard time choosing from the 12 delicious dips that you can eat alone or combine for unique flavor combinations like Peanut Butter Fudge or Vanilla Caramel, YUM!
Finally, decisions done! Now you can find a seat in the cozy dining room all decorated with an eclectic collection of tables, old things and furniture that I would personally love to take to fill my own home. Love the antique stove, how cute and reminds me of my great mamaw Huff’s place down in southern Kentucky.
Now to eating the pretzel, the anatomy might be helpful😊 so be sure to take your pretzel by the handles and tear apart to the Base of Love for a big dunk in your dip of choice.
And, if you didn’t get enough while there, don’t miss the chance to take a pretzel kit with you before you leave. Ben’s offers family packs that you can make yourself so you can enjoy the same great taste when you return home and before your next visit to Shipshewana. (Extra Note: They also do birthday parties and provide catering, just ask them for all the details.)
And never, have I seen something like this anywhere else. If you have a prayer request you can write it down, place it in the basket and the employees personally pray for your request or they have a group of prayer partners who also pick them up and pray for you as well... what a ministry!
