You can expect to see big jars of pickled eggs, pickled pigs feet, pickles, pickled sausages on the store counter. Nearby will be all manner of dried and smoked jerky and slim jim type products plus fried pork rinds. Should you wander over to the shelves, you may see easy open cans of "potted meat" and beanie weenies.
Some country stores have a sort of mini-restaurant corner too. Down in Holey Land I stopped in a country store for lunch and had an open face roastbeef sandwich with real mashed potatoes that I still recall fondly on sleepless nights. It was amazing.
I like the smell of these combo country stores ... they always smell a little like breakfast was just cooked ... like a grandma's kitchen ... I may not be putting this into words very well, but I know I like it.
I imagine country stores are similar all over the country, even though the local foods and regional snack traditions would be different ... as it should be.
Got a favorite country store or country store snack?
For my high school buddies, Kevin and Billy, it was a Ray Charles and a moon pie.
I usually went with a strawberry Nehi ... peer pressure had no effect on me.
