  • Incredible range of offerings; lots of unusual flavor combinations. Taste everything on crackers before buying, so you know what you're getting. I sympathize with people offended by the "no kids" signs, but also sympathize with the owner and situations that likely led to the signs. Some people monitor their kids carefully, don't let them stick fingers in the sample jars, or get sticky fingerprints all over, drop crackers or loose jam on the floor, etc, etc. Others unfortunately aren't as conscientious, and the store is so full of racks and shelves that the owner would need another two staff people just to monitor things and keep all the above from happening. It wouldn't take many instances of seeing kids with fingers in sample jars or having to deal with sticky jars and sampling-utensils to put me and a lot of people off the place and seriously hurt the business. I'm personally glad that the policy is as it is; I pretty much buy all my preserves there, stocking up whenever we're in town.
  • I thoroughly enjoyed Colonel Mustards condiment store. The owner is not rude at all. I'll definitely return and purchase more items. I will happily tell others to visit.
  • Good, however you will meet some rude servers.
  • Sign barring kids says it all.... Jerk. I Used to come up and buy over $100 worth of stuff and let my kids try different sauces and jellys and let them pick out their favorites. Now I'll just go to Amazon.
  • Well...There's a sign on the front door that says my family's not welcome.
