WARRENS, WIS. -- Greetings from the Interstate 94 corridor in Wisconsin. If you're driving to Chicago and have a hankering for anything cranberry, consider the Cenex gas station in Warrens, Wis. It's 150 from from St. Paul on the road to Chicago. With a view of cranberry bog out the window, and a Cranberry Bog restaurant across the road, they sell cranberry salsa, massage oil, lotion, candles, soap and cranberries covered with chocolate on a stick.

My favorite product? The cranbarnet wine. Really. And very reasonable

at three for $30.
