You know the unique food items sold at a fair or country market? The items normally not found in your local grocer? Many items are homemade or produced from an original recipe like curds, jams and biscuits. On a recent trip to Amish Country in Pennsylvania, we toured antique shops and indulged in traditional German Dutch treats of Lancaster County. Our first stop was Wilbur Chocolate Confectionary founded in 1894, where we enjoyed samples of chocolate. Then off to the Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery, America’s first pretzel bakery dating back to 1861 where we snacked on their soft and salty pretzels. They even offered lessons in pretzel twisting but we were content to taste test. After viewing Amish quilts, a stop at a coffee shop for a Whoopie Pie. Not really a pie but rather a chocolate cake-like sandwich with creamy vanilla filling. Finally, off to an old-fashioned candy store that sells penny candy and priced for today’s market. It was like a step back in time browsing our childhood favorites. Remember Mary Jane’s, Sugar Daddy's and Root Beer Barrels? What is your favorite?
