- Soft Pretzels at Taste of Philly in Chestnut Hill. What a fine snack establishment. It offers salt and sugar in often the same packages. You can’t go wrong with a classic soft pretzel, but you also could try a delicious cinnamon sugar pretzel too.
- Gummy Bears and more at A and N House of Produce in Germantown. I love this produce shop for a multitude of reasons, many of which are very healthy. But sometimes, I go in quickly with the little ones and head straight for the massive selection of small plastic bags or containers of snacks. Gummy bears! Sour Patch Kids! Salty pistachios!
Downtown and other spots:
- Fancy tea at Random Tea Room in Northern Liberties. Take a trek into Northern Liberties and visit the cutest tea shop you will ever find, where you and your kids can cuddle up in one of the quaint corners and look at all the curiosities and get a big pot of honest to goodness tea and maybe play a game of checkers or discuss the philosophies of sassy second graders.
- Indian snack mixes and/or samosas from International Foods and Spices in West Philly. Or go all the way to the west side of town and pop into this enchanting international grocery store that always has warm samosas at the cash register and whole aisle of authentic Indian snack mixes that might include some kind of puffed corn or other grain and nuts or chickpea flour-like items that are salty and wonderful.
I’m getting hungry. Brave the snow and get your snack on. What are some of your favorite snacks and snack spots in the city?
