Philadelphia food means killer cheesesteaks, hoagies, cannolis and soft pretzels. Whether you’ve relocated, are looking for a gift for a friend or relative who’s moved, or—let’s be real—are just too lazy to make the trip out, these area purveyors will ship a veritable taste of Philly right to your doorstep. –Chelsea Karnash
A Little Bit of Philly
Visit this site for a smorgasbord of yummy Philadelphia products. In addition to the regular items like pretzels and Tastykakes, A Little Bit of Philly sells hard-to-find Philly sodas, tins of cookies and pastries, an Italian Market cookbook and two different gift boxes of Philadelphia snacks.
Campo’s Deli is known for their hoagies and cheesesteaks, and you can order meals—complete with a Philly postcard—for one, two, four or more on their website. The packages include hoagies and/or cheesesteaks, condiments, a Tastykake, a bag of Herr’s chips, a soft pretzel and Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews. Weekend delivery is not available.
Fly Hoagies Fly
“Craving a cheesesteak?” this website asks, and the answer is, “Yes, please!” In addition to Philly’s most famous sandwich, Fly Hoagies Fly will also ship various hoagies, Amoroso rolls, scrapple, soft pretzels, something called the “South Philly Party Package” (a mix of local faves that feeds 10-20 people!) and much, much more. Fly Hoagies Fly ships overnight and some components come separately or half-cooked (you finish ‘em up at home) to ensure maximum freshness.
Bonus: You can listen to the Eagles Fight Song while you order.
You can’t order Isgro’s delish cannolis online, which may cost them a few points in the Isgro v. Termini rivalry. What you can order, though, are tins of their famous Italian cookies, biscottis, or torrones. Yum!
Taste of Philadelphia
Taste of Philadelphia has sold packages of Philly faves to J. Lo, Sharon Osborne and a number of other celebs, and has been up and running since 1978. Peruse their online catalog and you’ll find gift packs like the “Philly Cheesesteak Package” (a Philly cheesesteak with or without onions, along with Tastykakes, Bookbinder’s soup and more) and the “Philly Basket of Cheer,” a thank-you basket with a Philly FUN-ics coffee mug, Tastykakes, soft pretzels and other Philly-area products. You can also order Amoroso rolls—by the dozen!
The legendary pastry shop offers an extensive list of goodies that can be shipped nationwide, including their amazing cannolis, which are arguably the best in the city. Other items include large trays and tins of their fresh-baked cookies, like pignolis, coconut macaroons and torrones. Drooling yet?
