Shane’s Luck O’ The Irish Potatoes

These sweet spuds are whipped with Philadelphia Cream Cheese and Shredded Coconut, then rolled in Cinnamon for a spiced, dry finish. This confection has been popular in the Philadelphia area for more then 100 years. Although Irish Potatoes did not originate in Ireland, the tradition of this confection serves as a memorial to the 19th century hardships in Ireland. They were most likely created as a commemoration of the Irish Potato Famine that lasted from 1845-1851. Beat your hunger with these!

option11Craig Laban Loves Our Toasted Marshmallow Malted

“The amazingly delicious chocolate malted shake came from the Franklin Fountain, which was remarkably jam-packed this past weekend despite the freeing temperatures. They’re so clever about making-up cold-weather concoctions, like this shake, which gets topped with a marshmallow on chocolate and graham cracker torched to order… The Franklin Fountain is one of Philly’s culinary treasures. Take any out-of-towner there any night, and they will be impressed with the commitment to quality and craft (not to mention olde Philly ambiance. And even though it was freezing out, and I’m supposed to be trying to eat a little more healthfully this month…sluuuuurp! That malted was pretty much gone in a minute.” –Craig Laban
