Have You ever eaten...

Scrapple...a 200 Year old Tradition ?

Benjamin Franklin refers affectionately to Philadelphia's scrapple in his first writings.

George Washington's cook was Pennsylvania Dutch, and the first President's fondness for scrapple lasted his life-time.

It's not available in Massachusetts, well not the good stuff. You can find Jimmy Dean Scrapple in some stores but Habbersatt Scrapple from Philidelphia, PA is my favorite... I love it crispy with little Ketchup on the side... Like Will Ferrell and Syrup ,


From The Elf Movie

W.F. :Mmm. [Gasps] I love syrup.

W.F :Ohh, I love it.

W.F :Mmm...

I grew up on Scrapple and eggs but you wouldn't couldn't make me eat it today. I know what's in it, now!

The fact that you "grew up on it" seems to prove there was really nothing in it that caused you any damage. Personally, I think it is very tasty. Best brands are RAPA
and also HABERSETTS.
