Bet You Can't Crack This Nut

I have been waiting for this moment my entire life – the viewing of (drum roll please) THE WORLD'S LARGEST PECAN. 7' x 12' and weighing in at 12,000 pounds. Okay, so maybe I never heard of it before a couple of days ago but still – I figured it must be, at a minimum, the 8th wonder of the world.

Brunswick, MO advertises itself as the pecan capital of Missouri and this pecan is what is supposed to be one of the many roadside treasures found in the USA. Well, let me tell you – the experience was not all it cracked up to be. The “Nut House” store was closed, dilapidated, run down, a total mess. Had to stand in knee high weeds to get to the pecan.

We should have skipped the pecan and gone about 15 miles up the road to see the World's Largest Goose but guess that will have to wait until another trip.
