The elusive Minnesota Caveman has reappeared at a new spot, hours away from last year's location.

If you're up for a road trip, this wandering landmark is well worth the drive. Plus, there's more than just one of them.

What exactly is this odd piece of artwork and just how did it end up in this Minnesota park? The answer is just as interesting as the 'Ice Man' himself.

In reality, it's not a real caveman frozen in the ice, of course. It's actually an elaborate sculpture created by numerous people.

The plastic man, encased in plexiglass has been the talk of the state every winter for the last few years. It's popped up in numerous spots, including Theodore Wirth Park. And he even has a name. It's Zug Zug.

So, where is Zug Zug this winter? 

This year, Zug Zug has a new friend, and you can find them both in the Western Minnesota town of Detroit Lakes.

Zug Zug was made by artists Zach Schumack, Ian Molloy-Busse, Harry Hausk, and Gunnar Gapko. After being used in a local awards show, the sculpture hadn't seen the light of day outside Schumak's garage in quite some time. So, it was put up in the park and has been delighting passers-by (and maybe terrifying them too) ever since.

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.
