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!
