Minnesota's Largest Candy Store is also highway entertainment

The "Big Yellow Barn" is known for its giant selection of candy.

A trip up or down Hwy. 169 for a stop at Minnesota's Largest Candy Store will get you more than a fix for your sweet tooth, it'll also get you a good laugh. 

Actually, you don't have to stop because you can get the laugh driving by the store's big yellow sign on the west side of the highway.
