  1. Given the severe shortage of Amish in Texas, you will not be surprised to hear that I have *never* seen scrapple in or around Texas!

    We've got a good group here though, if its in the state, one of our chowhounds will know about it!

      I've purchased scrapple at central market in austin that tasted like I remembered from Maryland...

    2. Ed,

      Rapa brand scrapple is made by Ralph and Paul Adams, Inc., of Bridgeville,DE. Get to their website- they ship UPS during the cooler months of the year.

      I still have two pounds in my freezer. It's equally difficult to find here in Chicago. I grew up in Virginia and lived in Maryland for six years before moving to Texas in the eighties. I would occasionally see Jones brand scrapple, frozen, in some Winn-Dixie's and Tom Thumb stores.

      I had a scrapple sandwich the other night, but my favorite is fried crispy with a couple over easys.
      A little joint in my hometown has scrapple and egg sandwiches on their breakfast menu.

        I as well lived in Maryland for 42 years and now live in California where they've never heard of scrapple. One of the things I miss from the East coast.

          I have gotten frozen scrapple (not Rapa) at a Gerland's market a while back. That was at Wilcrest and Briar Forest on the west side. It is no longer a Gerland's (Foodway, I think). So maybe try another Gerland's. BTW, I prefer Habersetts...

            I get Habersett's (frozen)at Piggly-Wiggly stores here in SC - I don't know whether the chain spreads as far as Texas.

            Habersett's is kind of soft and difficult to fry well, but it is good scrapple.

            1. re: Sandy

              FYI:

              Habersetts was bought out by the Adams brothers and is now part of the Rapa family of scrapple. I've also tried it and prefer the Rapa myself.

              Also:

              Try www.seltzersbologna.com
              Seltzer's Smokehouse Meats
              P.O. Box 326
              Lititz, PA 17543

              This is a smaller producer of scrapple, Lebanon bologna, etc...

            Try the mail order link, as Rapa products are only distributed in the Mid Atlantic area.
