At the old Intercourse Canning Co. building, we would spend 40 minutes or more going over their products, and then make our choices. It was an older building, providing us with visual charm with a country taste, with twice the space that they now have.

That has all gone by the wayside. Instead of the rustic, high ceiling look that gave you space and a country/schoolhouse theme, it looks confused and minimal.... with no flow.

Maybe choppy is the word, with very little to look at. The coffee used to be a fabulous display, with us purchasing 6 to 8 choice flavors, and some of the most unique salsas.

Choppy floor plan........ virtually no theme to walk into....... a separation of products just to fill in the spaces..........trying to look like a boutique when it should feel like Amish country living.

Get your money back, from whomever designed this joint. It has the feeling of a roadside stand, with its average display of goods.

Am I too critical?

I am just stating the facts.............with a new upcoming headline, "Intercourse Canning Company Implodes!!!"

I couldn't wait to get out of there.

This rather pristine spot offers a number of products not found elsewhere and you'll want to wander with a shopping basket on your arm... We found a "Peanut Butter Spread" we'd been seeking for a few days... and ended up with some other goodies as well. One particularly nice feature is that when you get home from the trip and run out, you can order online. There's plenty here to taste and try... staff is helpful and it's worth a quick stop as part of your shopping agenda.

We visited the new building and enjoyed the less hectic atmosphere than the kitchen kettle village. Prices are about the same, no baked goods here but good jams and canned goods.

As the last person mentioned, this reply isn't an "attraction" like the Quilt Museum (see my previous review) but it is a great shop for canned items.

We walked out with beets (my favorite!), sweet and hot pepper relish and onion relish. Definitely items made in the area that are unique flavors.

There are so many things in display to try as well. One woman was actually making the Dutch apple jam in the shop! The prices here are also better than anywhere in town.
