Taste of Philly Food Tour
Philly is famous for its cheesesteaks, hoagies and pretzels. Learn the story behind these and other local food favorites, and the vibrant and historic Reading Terminal Market where they're sold, during this 75-minute walking tour in the Market.
You'll see pretzels being twisted, hear the story behind the Breyers Ice Cream logo, and find out where Milton Hershey got the idea for Hershey's Kisses. This is fun history--that has nothing to do with the government or what you learn in history text books!
The Taste of Philly Food Tour is the creation of local food writer Carolyn Wyman, author of the definitive "Great Philly Cheesesteak Book" (Running Press); "Spam: A Biography" (Harcourt); and "Jell-O: A Biography." Wyman has been featured on NPR's "Fresh Air," "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" and "Jay Leno."
