Every city has a few favorite dishes but nothing says Philly quite like a cheesesteak or a soft pretzel. There’s also Scrapple, Pork Roll (which is really from NJ, but hey, who’s counting?), Tastykakes (my favorite are those peanut butter cakes—yum!), and Water Ice. Philly loves to eat but what do you do when you’re craving that certain taste but aren’t nearby? You ship it! If you’re looking for a fun way to whet the appetite of a group about to visit Philadelphia or simply want to quell a homesick colleague, check out one of the following companies for shipping options:

After a nationwide search, the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB) has named Sheila Alexander-Reid the executive director of PHL Diversity. A business development division of the PHLCVB, PHL Diversity was created in 1987 and was the first multicultural division of a convention and visitors bureau in the country.
