If you frequent any one of Philly’s many independent coffee shops, you’re sure to have seen Gilda’s Biscotti for sale in big jars next to the cash register. They are a local favorite to be sure, and are such a natural pair with hot coffee or tea that it’s a wonder than anyone can keep them in stock.
If you’re putting together a gift basket for friends far away, make sure to add a bag of Gilda’s for true Philly authenticity (they travel better than cheesesteaks or soft pretzels). Pair them with a bag of coffee beans, or a jar of jam from the Fair Food Farmstand for a complete (and tasty) holiday present.
Philly Homegrown has created a guide that features edible gifts from around the region. You can see the full guide here, or check back daily to see all the gifts featured on uwishunu. We’re also giving away an At Home with Steve Poses prize pack, so make sure to enter! Contest ends Friday, December 10.
