Sprawled across Ed Martinek's 63-acre family farm, Adventure Acres cultivates a wholesome harvest of activities for pintsize and full-size visitors alike. Five corn mazes snake across a combined 11-plus miles of land, challenging navigators with twists and turns as onlookers and overly concerned scarecrows shout directions from an elevated watchtower. Scenic 30-minute hayrides explore the winding creeks and wildlife that meander peacefully across the grounds, and air-powered corn cannons equip trigger fingers with the power to launch ears up to 500 feet. After scouting the farm's outlying features, guests wrap back around to the petting zoo, where they can play with or try to elicit stock advice from tightlipped goats, horses, and cows.

What is one of your most popular offerings? How is it prepared?
Our fudge and caramel apples are always popular and you can watch them being made. We make the fudge Mackinaw Island?style, which means it is cooked in a copper kettle and poured onto a marble slab table, where it is paddled to creamy perfection. Our fudge sampler has six fudge flavors and is perfect for a family gathering or party. The granny smith apples are crisp and delicious and covered in our homemade caramel. We offer chocolate-covered strawberries every Friday and by special order any day.

In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
We offer three kinds of yummy treats: made-in-store fudge, corns, brittles, caramels, and chocolate-dipped treats. We also carry Kilwins fine case chocolates. To round out our offerings, we have 34 flavors of creamy Kilwins original recipe ice cream.
No two pizzas are created alike, but most of them look about the same. Not so at Jet?s Pizza, a carry-out and delivery-only establishment created in 1978 by brothers Eugene and John Jett?their signature pie layers tomato or barbecue sauce and melted mozzarella cheese within the crispy, brown right angles of a deep-dish square crust. But the crust?s charms don?t end there; diners can ?flavorize? it for free with seasonings such as shredded parmesan or the Turbo Crust, a blend of butter, garlic, and romano. These extras are what make Jet?s pizzas special; John Jett says ?If you're eating one of our pizzas and you don't have a smile on your face, then something is wrong." In addition to pies, Jet?s serves four flavors of chicken wings, subs, and breadsticks at locations spread across 13 states and two extrasolar planets.
Frequent diners at Qdoba come for the eatery’s signature flavors, but they may not know how far the staff travels to obtain them. Qdoba’s staff visits various parts of Mexico on a regular basis in search of flavor combinations that later enhance the shop’s burritos, quesadillas, and taco salads. Among these blends are ancho-chili barbecue, gumbo accented with cilantro rice, and the three-cheese queso, a creation that took 47 tries to perfect. Along with sought-after flavors, Qdoba’s staff members pride themselves on their painstaking preparation of fresh ingredients, from fire-roasted tomatoes to mouth-watering poblano peppers.
