This week on The Texas Bucket List we let our sweet tooth lead the way to a Texas candy factor that got its start in the Great Depression and is still rolling out some of our favorite candies, find double the trouble at a burger joint in Carrizo Springs, and patrol the history of those who protect our border.
Our first stop is sure to excite every sweet tooth in the Lone Star State. At Atkinson’s Candy Company in Lufkin, we explore sweets that have been tantalizing candy lovers since 1932 and find out what it takes to make these delectable pieces of sugary heaven.
Next we find ourselves getting into trouble (better make that double) in Carrizo Springs with our burger of the week from Double Trouble. This burger joint that’s located in an RV park may have an unconventional location, but the burgers made here with twin brotherly love are worth the trouble it takes to find it.
We close this week on the Texas Mexico border where we learn about the history of the U.S. Border Patrol. Border patrol security may be a hot topic in politics right now, but that’s not what we’re here to learn about. While at the U.S. Border Patrol Museum we learn about supped up cars, see some unique seized items, and hear about just how harrowing protecting the northern and southern border of America can be.
