I recently sat with my friend Bernadette for a Berks County Living story about her Irish roots and love of Irish Soda bread. Don’t sweat it, she shared a recipe ! One of the things we could not get to the bottom of was where to pick up locally made Irish Potatoes.
When she first mentioned Irish potatoes I thought she lost her mind. I forgot all about those tiny balls of coconuty sweetness rolled in cinnamon. It’s one of those recipes someone’s grandparents made. The question became how to locate these candy makers. I put it out on my Pure Food Facebook and was surprised to get such a big response and I want to share them with you. You could get them from Giant or Weis but don’t you prefer local, handmade candies?
You do want them, don’t you?
- Billy’s Handmade Candies, Temple
- Lorah’s Handmade Chocolates, special order only
- Miesse Candies, Downtown Lancaster
- possibly Sweet Salvation Truffles, Chester County
- Candy*Ology, Downtown Lititz
So far that’s the best I’ve got if you know anywhere else just make a comment below. In case you want to make them on your own, here are some recipes.
