I love Pennsylvania, but hate pretzels. Possibly the most benign snack known to man, unless you like cardboard. Ok, you can get a ton of flavourings coated on them, but once it's gone, you're left with that nothingness. I used to dread getting on any American airline, as pretzels were the only pacifier in the face of abject dime pinching,
On the subject of local foods though, I am partial to the very occasional Philly steak :)
