I just got back from a trip to the local grocery and they have never heard of Cope's Dried Corn! Actually, I had never heard of it either.... I guess I should ask some of the vendors at the Farmer's Market if they can get it.
Tastykakes are a no brainer - I can bring as many as you want.
I think by Sweet Bologna - you mean Sweet Lebanon bologna? My 4 yo discovered it a few months ago and he just *loves* it!
And the Splits - again, you mean the Dark Splits? I am gong to have to check around. They aren't something I normally look for so I may have to search a little.
There were some other good suggestions like scrapple, but how about any of the following?
Taylor Pork Roll?
Goldberg's Nut Chews?
There is a jelly/jam stand at the Farmers market that has all sorts of great products. Green Tomato Relish, Chow Chow, Garlic Jelly, etc. The Farmer's Market is only open Thurs, Fri, Sat so I can check back with them next week on anything you might want that I haven't seen.
Get your list together and I will happily meet you on the way north! Or if you need it sooner, I can always ship it to you!
