One Minnesota man is finally putting all of this snow we've been getting to good use, as he built a 30-foot behemoth Frosty the Snowman in his front yard.

The snowman is so giant, it towers over nearly every house in the neighborhood of this small Minnesota town.

Where Can You Find The Giant Snowman?

You can find the giant snowman in the town of Buffalo, Minnesota, about 45 minutes northwest of Minneapolis.

While it hasn't had as much snowfall as its more famous cousin with the same name in western New York, Buffalo has been taking a beating this winter. And with the above-average snowfall, Frosty is bigger than ever, and wider too. Maybe lay off the snowcones, okay Frosty?

This is hardly the family's first crack at building a giant frosty. In fact, this is the fourth year they've done it. This first year, the snowman was 12 feet tall, then 20 feet, 25 feet, and finally, a staggering 30 feet this year.

While the snowman in Buffalo has gained national attention, it's not anywhere near the tallest one ever built. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, that honor belongs to a snowwoman actually. It was built by an entire town in Maine over the course of a month back in 2008 and stood at a mind-boggling 122 feet tall.

Check out the YouTube link below from Fox 9 Minneapolis for an up-close look at the giant snowman and a profile of the man who built it.

Inside Minnesota's Largest Candy Store

I had been to Minnesota's Largest Candy Store once before, but they did some pretty cool things since the last time I was there. They added a bunch of superheroes, Star Wars stuff, and a candy band.

According to their Facebook page, Jim's Apple Farm is actually how the now huge candy store got its start. It is located in Jordan, MN and you can't miss it. It is a huge yellow building.

Even though candy is mentioned in the name, they have a little bit of everything. They have fresh baked pies and cookies and fudge. We walked in and it smelled amazing!

They also have the largest selection of sodas! Then there is chocolate and taffy and gummies and chips and puzzles and games. So much stuff!

They even have a Zoltar machine like in the movie, Big. I had to check that out. He told me the only helping hand is at the end of my arm. Gee, thanks Zoltar.

There were even crickets and worms! Not gummy worms, but actual worms.
They also have candy from all over the world!

The store is seasonal, however. November is their last month of operation for the season.
