Scrapple is found in mid-Missouri but under a different name. meat shop will recognize "scrapple" and defer you to it. there is a large German presence including Amish and Mennonites so that may be why it's available.
to me, it was a metro Philadelphia breakfast "meat" although i, too, have heard of having it for other meals.
i do not care for scrapple. i think that it was invented as a way to get rid of unwanted guests who show up at your front door. i only get it when i'm in metro Phila.
Smithfield Meats of Virginia makes a scrapple that i've seen both in Michigan and Missouri.
HOWEVER.
a Chinese concern just took them over so i wonder if this product will continue.

Never heard of scrapple until I moved to Maryland, but loved it since I tried it.

Actually, Scrapple was "Invented" as a way to use every part of the pig except the oink. Industrious Amish farmers made use of EVERYTHING to supplement their Spartan way of life.

Scrapple was actually first produced by the Dutch Colonists in Chester Co. PA. It became popular with the Amish and Mennonite populations in the area. I like it best fried crisp and with a little molasses poured on it. Great with eggs!
