This town is always of interesting to our visitors. Quite frankly, we in Lancaster County don’t even give the name a second thought. To me it is a place to send guests that want a buggy ride, to see quilts, taste great food or shop at some neat specialty shops. This week end one of those shops is having a Hot Dog Bash on Saturday, Intercourse Canning Company. While you are there you can visit those neat shops, do some taste tests at Kitchen Kettle , do the pretzel thing Intercourse Pretzel and try the soft pretzels at Immergut Pretzels (no website, run by the Amish). So you see you can spend all day just hanging out eating, shopping, eating, shopping etc.
Getting out and about Lancaster County is more difficult than you might think. When you come you have time at you fingertips, but just like when you are home and can always find something else to do, that is what it is like for me. Yesterday my grand-daughter and I went out and did a few things. We needed lunch, of course, and went to Immergut Pretzels and I had a “wrap”, sausage and cheese wrapped in pretzel dough and baked. Let me tell you I could eat that more often. Then on to The Good Cooking Store. They offer cooking classes and have a great array of kitchen stuff. I can always get lost in a place like that. Check out their class schedule, this Saturday is all about whoopie pies.
YUMMY pretzels! Served with peanut butter, plain butter, dips and whatever you might want to add. I even make a dessert using pretzels. So this Saturday in Lititz it is FEST time. Sturgis Pretzels in Lititz has been around for a long time and I’m sure will have a lot to do with this event. If you venture to Intercourse you can go to Intercourse Pretzel Factory, my favorite pretzel there is the brown butter pretzel. Lancaster County is settled by the Germans and we love our pretzels, whether they are thin, fat, flavored, plain or dipped (chocolate is good). You need to experience this to understand.
