Being a native of the Philadelphia area, I was raised on the various treats made by Philly institution Tastykake. And having moved to New York over a decade ago, I know all too well the pain of not having ready access to butterscotch krimpets. Similarly, friends who’ve relocated to NYC from Chicagoland get misty-eyed when discussing Matt’s cookies and other Windy City snacks.
So in this completely informal survey, we want to hear from y’all about your favorite local snacks, items that you can’t get elsewhere or have to have shipped to you.
This isn’t a competition (yet!) so please try to play nice.
