I'm making a list of Philly cuisine and brands to either purchase or try. So far I've got

Cheesesteaks, water ice, hoagies, soft pretzels, scrapple, Yuengling, Turkey Hill, and Herr's chips

What am I forgetting, whether it be a food or a brand of food distinctive to the Philly area?

WaWa Milkshakes or basically anything from WaWa...and I second Tastykakes...

Also, there's a lot of Entenmann's products that are not available in other areas of the country like they are in NJ and PA, make sure to get their chocolate chip cookies...

I can buy Entemanns in Sierra Vista AZ, and that's about as remote as you get. I can also get Tastykake but not many Butterscotch Krimpets.
The Soft Pretzels just aren't the same. Thanks to the Military Commissaries

Yuengling is made in Pottsville, not Philadelphia, isn't it? I don't really know what a beer from Phladelphia beer is, but this link mentions some small breweries that look like fun - Philadelphia makes its case as nation's best beer-drinking city - USATODAY.com
