New York City Snack Foods?
I am getting married at the end of the month in the city and I want to give my out of town guests a little goodie bag in their hotel rooms full of classic NYC snack foods. Nothing can be perishable cause it's going to be sitting in the hotel room unrefrigerated. So far I am including Black and White cookies and Schwepp's Black Cherry Seltzer but I'm looking for something savory and am drawing a blank. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
Schwepps Black Cherry Seltzer? Not sure why that is in there. Should be Dr. Brown's Black Cherry or Cel-ray.
For savory, maybe get Martin's (hard) pretzels. They are sold in the Union Sq greenmarket.
Schwepp's isn't really "New York." In fact, I believe that it was originally British. Celery soda or U-Bet chocolate syrup -made in Brooklyn since the 1890's(an essential ingredient in a New York egg cream, which used to be a staple NY soda-fountain drink)) would work better. There is also a cofee soda- can't recall the name, but maybe other CH's know- that has been made only in NY for decades.
Other more obvious choices are bagels, bialys, knishes, NY style cheesecak.
I myself would love to get a baggie with coffee beans, pickles, pretzels, honey, maple candy, jam, etc. And a "We are happy to serve you" mug.
