Made in the Baltimore Region

I am working on my welcome bags which will include products made in the Baltimore region. In making a list of items to include, I have come up with
Berger cookies,
Goetze's caramel creams,
Mary Sue bites,
Utz potato chips,
Clipper Tea and
Natty Boh beer.

What other food products are made in the Baltimore region? I know about the different spices but don't think they are best to include in a welcome bag. Thanks!

  1. How about a selection of "Sun of Italy" products or some "Tiger Sauce" from Tulkoff's?

      Great call -- those are definitely Baltimore products. And good too!

    2. Natty Boh beer is no longer made in Maryland, though the Baltimore region comprises the majority of the market. Its brewed in North Carolina now.

      If you want a beer, all the Clipper City brews are really good. So is Resurrection from Brewers Art.

      I'd add Taharka Bros ice cream to the list.

        Correct, Nasty Boh is not made in Baltimore. Apparently they are moving production of it to a Miller plant in Delaware, so it's getting a bit closer to Baltimore.

        However, in a similar vein and to be fair, the bottles and cans of Brewer's Art beers are brewed by Sly Fox brewing near Philly. Draft is still made here though.

        As for made in Baltimore, are Dangerously Delicious pies still made in Baltimore? They have a number of small personal sized pies at the JFX market on Sundays. Also how about Charm City Cupcakes?

          You could include the Flying Dog beers brewed in Frederick, if that isn't stretching it too much.

      2. I had Goetze's in my welcome bags, but did Route 11 Old Bay chips instead of Utz because you can get Utz in a lot of places now. is Baltimore.

        How about a crab cake recipe card?

        I remember viewing this site to get inspired for the Baltimore area:

        Our welcome bags were a mix of the DC-area and Philly (where we are from) and were a hoot to put together! (FYI: are awesome...I did not know about them when I was organizing my stuff!)

          1. Don't know if meat products will work for your welcome bags, but to go along with what monkeyrotica said
