Fun foodie day trip to Philly!!

Last weekend I went to visit some friends of mine in Philly for the day and we had all sorts of great food spots planned for the day! The focal point of the day being to get the Donolli — a donut cannoli hybrid. Let me tell you, friends, the whole day was a huge win. So so so so so much yumminess!

At Frangelli’s for the Donolli (or what they call their Franolli)

We ate them out of the back of the pickup truck and improvised with the only knife available to us as we split up our donuts for a tasting!

Then onto Federal Donuts for fried chicken and donuts — I sat out on the fried chicken since I was still full but did get a couple of their specialty donuts to go which were breakfast the next day ๐Ÿ™‚

Then off to the Italian market area where we started with some olive oil and balsamic tastings!

Then some cheese sampling! I bought this awesome coconut chocolate bar which they let me try a store sample of and they paired it with an awesome cheese. Also I just loved everyone in this shop – they were so funny and friendly.

Then to Reading Terminal to browse around. My friend told us we HAD to take a couple Hope’s Cookies home with us because they are the best and most fresh from here. She was right – we absolutely loved them!
