With August just around the corner, the time for summer vacations is coming to an end. There is, however, still time to squeeze in a weekend getaway at one of these strange food museums, featured in an article by NPR's "The Salt."


If you are anywhere near Le Roy, NY, it's imperative that you stop in at the Jell-O gallery, which, among historical artifacts and informative mobiles, has an exhibit devoted exclusively to Bill Cosby. What more could you want from a vacation destination? If your vacation is of a slightly higher budget, check out one of the European suggestions, where you can design your own chocolate bar, gain a greater understanding of curried sausages, or watch as cheesemongers transport hundred-pound wheels of gouda. Again, you really can't lose.

The one museum that I think was overlooked by NPR sits at the very tip of Northern Maine, and was a favorite destination during my college years - "The Southern Aroostook Agricultural Museum," known more commonly as "The Potato Museum."
