Meramec Traveler: Uranus Fudge Factory and General Store

Move over “Greatest Showman!”

Admit it. There are not many places you can still go to see sights such as a “Fire Manipulator,” “Monsters of Calcutta,” “2-Headed Bull Shark” and such these days. Uranus Sideshow Museum has all these and more. Dubbed as “freaky and crazy,” and “unbelievable, but true,” the wonders, oddities and curiosities are just a few of the must-stop-for treasures at Uranus Fudge Factory and General Store, located just east of Saint Robert along I-44.

Enter the Fudge Factory and General Store and you will be greeted with a hearty “Hello. Welcome to Uranus” accompanied by upbeat tunes that entice you to pat your foot or dance around as you browse. Nostalgic items adorn the shelves, along with tons of delectable candy options. They even have my favorite—moon pies!

After leaving the Factory, mosey on down to another building to check out other eclectic offerings.

You’ll find Chicken Bones Party Bar and Grill and it’s 20 flavors of wings (opens at 4 daily) along with escape rooms, a creamery, the museum and sideshow, and a tattoo parlor, among others.

Oh, and there are dinosaurs for that great photo op, if you get bored.

You won’t!

So, fly on over to Uranus. It really is out of this world.
