My sweet tooth won today while in Santa Claus. I am usually pretty good, but walking into a castle full of sweets was just too much. Santa's Candy Castle was full of nostalgic candy like the lemon drops Grandma Kochert always had in a bowl, modern confections, candy-coated popcorn, the popular reindeer hoof shaped chocolate and gooey nutty deliciousness. In the name of research, my evil sweet tooth ordered me to have the famous frozen hot chocolate for lunch and I obliged. The sweet girls behind the counter reported making over a hundred on the weekend days in the summer, and I believe it. Such a rich and decadent treat. The castle also boasts a room of computers with a direct link to Santa's Elves to make sure you get on Santa's nice list with a certificate to prove it. With the haul of treats I bought myself, I am sure my chances were shot, so I got a certificate for a good little girl I know. SANTA'S CANDY CASTLE 15499 IN 245 | 812.544.3900 www.santascandycastle.com Just outside of town – past the golf course with the skinny Santa sculpture – sits Santa's Stables in Lamar. I introduced myself to the team of horses, the sleepy dogs and the staff and, surprisingly, found myself doing a bit of shopping at the stables. The stable wall is covered in signs and decor from painted, old barnwood and horseshoes, and a jewelry case full of bracelets made form horse hair and rings of horseshoe nails. Everything at the stable is made by the owners and the girls in between rides. There are 45-minute trail rides, 25 minute rides and guided pony rides for the young ones. I did not go for a ride, but made sure to say hello to the horses and dogs. SANTA'S STABLES 6709 E. County Road 1475 N. Lamar 812.340.2288 www.santa-stables.com 11
