    All you can eat buckwheat cakes! This is a "sour" cake, and a local specialty, which has been using the same starter for 30 years or so.

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    Do you mean The Country Store in Pennsdale, PA http://www.countrystoremeats.com/about-us.aspx We like their slab bacon, sliced thick maybe cooked over an open fire. The Pennsdale store is a nice meat market the latest special is 3 Little Pigs (a bacon wrapped pork chop stuffed with sauage).
    Some of the The Country Store products can be bought in the Bloomsburg area. The Short Stop Mart in Lightstreet on RT 487 carrier Country Store and some other great deals (whole filet mignon for $7.99 an lb Very nice) Gotta watch their sign.

    Yes, that's the place. Many of their products are available through-out PA. Relative to hotdogs, the Hoffman whites from NY are much better.

    I always try to get some Shoe fly Pie to bring back home when I am in the area. Always loved it when I was younger but now it seems my sweet tooth is not as sweet depraved and in need of a fix as it used to be..........

    Still yearn for it, Who has the best variant of it in the area?

    Store bought is store bought, there must be a real good premium pie down there.

    That's also vile. And while I'm loath to describe any as "best," you could get home made ones from Amish roadside stands.

    Oh God, don't do it........That crap is made for suburbanite tourists and worse than Wonderbread. The Amish are smart business people and those bake goods are made with the lowest possible grade of ingredients. Seriously, the bread has the texture of Wonderbread.

    That may be true for Lancaster County Amish who are completely touristified, but I go to the stands in Cumberland and Perry counties where the Amish are still feral.

    Perry County ................. The land that makes West Virginia look urbane...

    Seriously, I live further away from Lancaster than you so my local Amish should be even less commercial (by your logic). In any event, the food isn't good. My ex-pat sister bought some of it last summer during a visit and we dumped it in the trash after the first taste. Seriously, the bread had the same texture as Wonder/Strohman/Holsum bread.

    As a native born West Virginian, I resemble that remark. I'll be zooming through Perry County about an hour from now.

    There are some nice Amish/Mennonite farm stands--both produce and baked goods--along Rt 75.

    75 runs thru Franklin and Juniata counties. 74 runs thru Perry Co.
