NEPA’s Favorite Fall Treats
Jill Patton

Cool Weather Means Cozy 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.

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 on its Way Out, But Ice Cream is Here to Stay


Chilly autumn nights won’t stop ice cream lovers from getting their scoops in. Luckily, NEPA creameries always rise to the occasion. Over the next few weeks, stop by local parlors and roadside stands for seasonal flavors, like cinnamon, apple pie and pumpkin, along with special sundaes to get you in that fall mood.

Get Your Fill of Warm, Sugary and Oh-So Delish Apple Cider Donuts

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 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.
