NEPA’s Favorite Fall Treats

We can almost smell the cinnamon in the air. Something about the cool breeze and frosty mornings just triggers an insatiable craving for apple goodies, Halloween candy and pumpkin-flavored… well… everything. Here in NEPA, our fall food traditions are worth the craze. Iconic treats like cider donuts and pumpkin ice cream go hand-in-hand with memories of apple picking, hayrides and nights around the bonfire.

Bundle up in your coziest sweater and enjoy the flavors of fall at these local shops. Beware: this post will definitely make you hungry.

Summer’s Gone, But Ice Cream is Here to Stay

Even on these chilly autumn nights, NEPA will never give up scoops from our local creameries. Our ice cream parlors have already rolled out their seasonal flavors, like cinnamon, apple pie and pumpkin. Each thick, creamy spoonful has the perfect blend of autumn spice.

NEPA’s Apple Cider Donuts are Warm, Sugary and Oh-So Delish

When fall rolls around, our local orchards are hard at work picking apples, pressing cider and baking their famous apple cider donuts. They’re fried to golden perfection, rolled in crispy cinnamon sugar and bursting with fresh apple flavor. Drive out to NEPA’s apple country and pick up a dozen. Or two. For real. It’s easy to go through, like, six of these things in one sitting.

Warm Up at Your Neighborhood Coffee Shop

Love it or hate it, pumpkin spice season is upon us in full force. NEPA’s local coffee shops are brewing PSLs that are sooo beyond “basic.”  Handcrafted drinks, locally roasted beans and a warm blend of spices make these drinks cozier than a flannel on a crisp fall day. And don’t forget about other seasonal drinks like toasty chai, steaming apple ciders and rich hot cocoa.

Treat Yourself to Some Festive Fall Chocolates

Don’t go raiding the kids’ plastic pumpkin buckets just yet. NEPA’s candy shops are whipping up decadent chocolates and Halloween treats that will satisfy your sweet tooth. Pick up some pumpkin fudge, gourmet candy apples, chocolate-dipped treats and fall-themed candies.
