NEW Foods at the Fall Meet?

Recommended Posts

I have a friend who hopes to be a vendor at the fall meet.  He owns a popular restaurant in town.  What would you like to see served that is not currently being offered at the meet?

  Some of my favorites I never see: shave ice/ sno cones, baked goods (like from a real bakery), Asian food, Mexican food.

Love being across from the crab cake vendor.  Agree with the baked goods - PA is famous for their apple fritters.  Makes a great breakfast.    Wish it was easier to find UNSWEATENED Ice tea though.

What ever happened to the guy selling the flavoured soda that had the special hershey souvenir mugs with free refills for the meet? I did not see him last year and have sort of a collection of those dust collectors

I have missed the guy that made homemade ice cream with the hit & miss engine in the lower Chocolate field. He stayed open  late and was always a nice walk after supper for desert.

The crab cake vendor is my favorite. I remember the first year the car show moved to the old golf course and I walked over to the Giant Center to get a sandwich on Saturday. Thank goodness they started moving one of the crab cake trailers to the show field on Saturday soon after that. I attended a car show recently and had a crab cake sandwich there. Sadly, it paled in comparison to the crab cakes at Hershey.

 

To answer Steve's question...

 

How about a GOOD Meatball sub,  a GOOD Veal Parm or Chicken Parm sub? I realize "good" is a subjective term but I find it a challenge to find sandwiches of this type that taste good. I find that often times that the sauce used on these sandwiches gets acidic from simmering for long periods of time and the water  is simmered away. Also, the quality of the meat used in these sandwiches can impact the taste as well.

I myself find the bread to be the worst part of those sandwiches, just not all that fresh, but very little that can be done about that in the environment we are in at Hershey
