Seattle-part 6: Beechers & Candy Apples

Beechers_1

mmmm, cheese.

We weren’t too sure what was going on when CB and I walked into Beechers in Pike Place Market. We knew we saw cases and cases of cheese, we also sampled some of the curds on display. We were both a little skeptical, since the word curd doesn’t exactly produce visions of delicious cheese… more like thoughts of Miss Muffet, her tuffet… some curds and whey and a giant spider.

But after sampling and checking out the menu, we decided to stay for lunch, since we did not have any other plans. CB got the traditional Grilled Cheese and I got the French Onion Soup and a toasted Cheese Breadstick.

We headed over to the counter to sit on giant tin milk cans and eat our lunch while watching the curds get seasoned and packed.

What a great way to spend lunch. We could watch the crowds bustle by, read the history of Beechers and savor the lovely cheese items. The Market Herb Curds were especially tasty!

After lunch we made our way back out on the sidewalk and into the crowd. We walked up the hill and then past the Crumpet Shop, where I popped my head in to take a look. I wanted to eat breakfast there, at some point during our trip, but we ran out of time.

We spotted an amazing storefront filled with candy apples. They were not just candy or caramel covered apples. These apples were dressed to the nines! A variety of nuts, marshmallows, fudge and white chocolate drizzles, they were amazing! We stopped in and CB bought a massive chocolate dipped strawberry for $4! I sampled a few different flavors of the candied apples and my sweet tooth was satisfied. We stayed for a few minutes to watch the next batch of apples preparing to be dressed in yummy coatings before we headed back down to the market.
