Food This Putt-Putt Course Is A Real-Life Candy Land
The Origins of the Most Popular Christmas Food Traditions
<p>There are many theories about how Christmas food traditions began, so let's break down four of them right now.</p>Though you may not look forward to studying during the holiday season, you can certainly look forward to eating. There are certain foods that undoubtedly find their way into our local supermarkets around Christmastime. For better or for worse, these iconic Christmas treats have been around for centuries.
Before you even order anything at, you can already feel the sugar high setting in. From the moment you walk in, a sweet scent fills the air - a one-two punch from the candy shop and snack shack that fill the front of the store - which only gives way to that may make you think you're hallucinating. You're not.

And you thought time travel was impossible.
Why yes, those are lollipops the size of trees, and yes, that off-kilter stack of cakes could fill the bed of a dump truck. The giant props help set the tone of the candy-themed mini amusement park, which includes a bowling alley, an arcade, and two full-size mini golf courses.

While Crave welcomes tourists, it was launched just as much with locals in mind, said partner Chucky Blalock. The club's owners also run the nearby TopJump, a trampoline arena, and they wanted to offer another way to celebrate . (After all, one can only go to Chuck E. Cheese so many times. Not to mention the nearest one is an hour away, in Knoxville.)
How Your Home Could Be Making It Harder to Lose Weight
Sometimes, it’s best to consider our problems in reverse: Let’s pretend we’re trying to pack on the pounds, in as unhealthy a way as possible. Then they wonder why it's so hard to make any progress. Far too often, we lose battles to our environment but place the blame on our lack of willpower. This is when some parents roll their eyes. "But I have kids," they say. "It's not fair to get rid of everything they like to eat.
Crave's only been open a few months, but it's already attracting a following, thanks in part to its Instagrammable decor. And must-post-then-inhale milkshakes, which can be topped with all kinds of treats, like sprinkles, chocolate chips, and gummy bears. These days, there's no word of mouth quite like a tag on a post.
