The greatest part of having the country’s eyes on you is that suddenly everything you do is just so special. Pennsylvania’s culinary delights are suddenly the focus of a NYTimes Caucus post.
No. It was a post about chocolate and cheese fries:
Question to our Keystone State readers: What is it with this Pennsylvania fetish for bizarre world food combinations? In Johnstown, this New Yorker encountered the artery-clogging prospect of cheese-fries. And here in this diner in a perfectly lovely corner of this Berks County we come upon the Marvel Mess, a sandwich combining eggs, potatoes, onions, cheese, green peppers and Shiva only knows what else…
Cheese-fries? Really? Obviously Mr. Powell has never been to a bowling alley. Also, the Marvel Mess sounds a lot like a skillet, but on bread. Gasp!
I don’t want to espouse too much Keystone pride, but I’ve seen people in New York eat bugs.
