Cranberry World

Cranberry World has, alas, closed its doors and is no more.

[Robin Canty, 05/18/2004]
Cranberry World

Ocean Spray's Cranberry visitor's center in downtown Plymouth, within walking distance of Plymouth Rock and the Wax museum. Admittance is free, and you get to walk through the History of the Cranberry exhibit with the obligatory "Indians with Cranberries" diorama then on to the larger "How Cranberries are Processed" videos and exhibits. Take a picture of a loved one next to the giant cranberry model or the cranberry bog.

The highlight comes at the end of the self-guided tour when you enter the kitchen and get to try Ocean Spray products. About 12-15 enormous tanks, each holding a different variety of Ocean Spray juice (some are prototypes, not available to the public), are open to taste. When I was there they were offering samples of cranberry mustard on pretzels. The best part of Cranberry World, in my opinion, was that by showing your receipt at the door you could come in at any time during that day and go through the sampling room again and again.

Cranberry World, USA

Plymouth Rock is no reason to drive to Plymouth. Cranberry World, USA is however, worth the trip. Interesting exhibits, cranberry recipe tasting and all the cranberry juice products that you can drink. The juice does come in tiny little cups, so you've really got to plant yourself there for a while in order to drink a whole lot.

Still a pause that refreshes on Roadside America's Boring Tour.

Cranberry World

We found Plymouth Rock to be a complete bust, but did discover "Cranberry World" in Plymouth. The museum is operated by Ocean Spray and dedicated to educating people about the cultivation and uses of cranberries. You can drink all the cranberry juice you can hold.
