@billyboy ~ Is there anything you would like from Texas that you would be interested in trading for a Pastrami on rye from Katz's?
I've got the mustard.

Welcome aboard danielle81.  I'd be happy to mail you some Moon Pies if you'd like.
 
Does anyone remember Scooter Pies?  Just like a Moon Pie, named after Phil Rizzuto.
 
Still available. "how about that"

An old ad for either the moon pie or the RC.

A belated welcome to Roadfood, Danielle!!  I grew up in Central NY and as SeamusD was saying above, half moon cookies are very popular in that region.  There is a bakery/deli in Yorkville, NY (adjacent to Utica, NY and about 1 hour east of Syracuse, NY) called Holland Farms Bakery & Deli.  They make some of my most favorite half moon cookies and they ship to all 50 states!  Here is their website:  http://hollandfarms.com

And some half moon pics:
This is a chocolate base half moon cookie (more like a cake-brownie hybrid in terms of texture...and my personal favorite!)


And a carrot cake half moon cookie.  Pretty good too. 


That's what I'm talkin' about! I'm not a huge fan of sweets, but I'll generally never turn down a good chocolate half moon.

I just LOVE these classic retro ads. Thank you. Got any more?

SeamusD, heading up to Utica in a few weeks and I'll be getting my fix of greens, tomato pie, half moons and pusties for sure!!
 
Twinwillow, I was thinking of some brisket and sausage from Louie Mueller or Franklin Barbeque, pie from Royer's Round Top or donuts from Round Rock (though I'm not sure that is such a good idea as the shortest amount of time from the fryer to my mouth is how I usually roll!)

Danielle, one of the candies I grew up eating in Central NY was Turkey Joints.  A hard-shelled stick candy with a chocolate and Brazil nut center.  They are named as such because the outer shell is the "bone" and the inner part is the "marrow".  I know, sounds weird, but so good!  There was always a jar of them under the Christmas tree, "From Santa" every year.  A bit pricey but one of those foods that I just can't resist!  They do ship throughout the U.S  but only October through May as they are delicate and the outer shell can wilt in the summer heat.

Website:  https://www.turkeyjoints.com/catalog/

Heh, I remember turkey joints.  My dad would buy them for us kids when we'd visit friend in Corning, New York (where I was born).

You know, I've never had Utica greens. Never even seen it on any menus around here (between Syracuse and Auburn). Utica's other contribution to local cuisine, chicken riggies, you can find just about anywhere (and usually just so-so), but not the greens.
 
Turkey joints must have been popular in a not-so wide area, I'd never heard of them until recently. I was all about cow tails growing up.

SeamusD, Turkey Joints are made at Nora's candy Shop in Rome, NY and can be found in many of the gift shops in town.  They can also be found in Wegman's and Price Chopper in Syracuse around Christmastime.  I believe Nora's makes them year-round but only ships them Oct.-May as the hard sugar shell on the outside does't hold up so well in the summer heat.  
 
I'm working on a series profiling Utica-style greens (as well as one for Frettas/Frettatas/Frittatas) to put up in a RF thread soon.  I did find three places in Syracuse that have greens on the menu:
1.)  Avicolli's (Liverpool)

 
2.)  Basil Leaf Ristorante (Taft Rd. & Rte. 11 (Liverpool/Syracuse?))

 
3.)  Utica Pizza Co. (in the shopping plaza on Rte. 11 just down the road from the Basil Leaf)

Figures, I've never actually been inside any of those places, although I've had Avicolli's pizza (it's pretty good). I often lament living in this area (everybody is grumpy, lots of crime, taxes, et al), but there are so many good restaurants in the area, it kind of makes up for it sometimes. As does the scenery, especially in the fall.

Maybe whoopie pies are a Southern thing after all.....
 
Kentucky Whoopies
If you need any more of an endorsement, these are the official whoopie pies of the National Tractor Pullers Association!

A regional snack treat in WI is pickled eggs and pickled turkey gizzards.  Hard to find anyone who wants to trade for that though.  LOL
