Outstate treasures [Moved from Minneapolis St. Paul]

I didn't find a thread for this so...

If someone walked up to me and said you could enjoy a simply sublime caramel roll from a gas station/supermarket in a little town I would chuckle and say yeah right.

My family has a little cabin on Otter Tail Lake. In the tiny town of Ottertail is Carr's Supermarket which is a gas station, bait shop and sort of a grocery/convenience store (high prices, limited selection).

Carr's makes, on-site, the most wonderful caramel rolls baked fresh each morning. It is not unusual to roll in there on a weekend morning and find a line waiting for the next batch to come out. I have come in there some mornings around 9 or 10 and found that they were sold out for the day.

These caramel rolls are warm, fresh, yeasty, caramelly and incredibly delicious. And also completely out of place.

I would classify them as a destination if you are in the area do yourself a favor and partake in the goodness that is Carr's caramel rolls. (Wipes drool off chin).
