I have to say that I LOVE food festivals. I go to as many as I can. The festival I went to today was one of my faves... the Chile Pepper Festival! All things spicy! It's hard not to try everything they have, so I probably tried most of the free samples available. Some of my favorite combinations and spicy and sweet, like pepper and apricot preserves. They even had jalepeno wine! It was actually from a company from my town (the festival was in Bowers, PA, about an hour away from me). I didn't know what to expect, but I tasted the wine and found it to be surprisingly good! At $20 a bottle, though, I decided not to buy it. I had to show some restraint when buying products, because I wanted to buy practially everything I tasted.
Here are some of the things I bought:
Chocolate covered jalepenos!
Hot sauce, cranberry pepper jelly, and hot chili spice mix from 20 peppers company. They use 20 kinds of peppers in their products!
My mom has been looking all over for these!
Tomorrow, my friend from North Carolina will be in PA for a couple of days, so we're going to Hershey Park and Chocolate World for the day. I love going to Hershey--you can smell the chocolate just driving down the street!
Have a nice weekend!
