What’s the difference between a Philadelphia soft pretzel* and a national brand pretzel? Are Tastykakes that good? A Goldenberg’s peanut what? Philly Phlavors, a new PHL Food & Shops Eatery located in the B/C Connector Food Court, offers PHL guests the opportunity to experience some local delicacies with its distinctive Philadelphia menu.
“We regularly receive requests for more regional food items, especially from guests that are only at the airport making a connection or others that want to take a taste of Philadelphia with them,” said Megan O’Connell, MarketPlace PHL Marketing and Customer Service Manager. “PHL PHLavors’ menu includes sandwiches using Dietz and Watson meats, Jack and Jill ice cream, soft pretzels from the iconic Federal pretzel bakery, Famous 4th Street Cookies, Tastykakes, Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews and Asher’s chocolate-covered pretzels. These are brands Philadelphians have enjoyed all of their lives and visitors have grown to love.”
Philly PHLavors also features regional favorites, like Johnson’s caramel corn from the Ocean City, N.J., boardwalk, Herr’s potato chips from Lancaster County, Lacas coffee from Pennsauken, N.J., and Campbell’s soups from Camden, N.J.
“The restaurant has covered the region with its menu and features items people say they miss when they aren’t in Philadelphia. We’re looking forward to even more offerings in the future, including the local staple, a Scrapple sandwich.”
