Some would say yes, some would say no!

Reminds me of nothing from a supermarket. I would choose Senape's 100% of the time over supermarket any day. It's just far.

Had to revisit this thread, for today I had the chance to hit up the Senapes Bakery in Hazleton.  I grew up 30 miles south (or so) of the place and have eaten the Pitz many times but this was my first trip to the bakery.  I was the wheel man on a trip to the Swiftwater area with another guy and this took us right past Hazleton so there was no passing up this opportunity.

First of all, Hazleton is still snowed in, pretty badly.  Having lived 20-ish years of my life in this area, I don't recall seeing so much snow.  The town has front loaders still roaming the streets, trying to clear a storm from last Thursday.  Huge pile of snow at every intersection.  Most people know enough to creep up to these intersections and wait/yield.  Not much trouble there.  Parking was a mess, these streets are maybe 14 feet wide and two-way.  Snow encroachment made it daunting.  I got lucky and got right in front.  A man with Virginia plates was leaving, said he was heading home...had a box which contained what I counted eight boxes of Pitz and assorted baked goods.  I went in and grabbed three boxes of Pitz ($6.50@) and we were on our way.

The Pitz comes 12 to a box, and it hardly seems enough.  It should be re-labeled as CRACK COCAINE.  I think it's the oil and the parmesan that makes this stuff so irresistable.  I left the pie in the car, had some business to do in Swiftwater for maybe 90 minutes.  Got back in the car and of course it smelled like the bakery.  Needless to say, the CRACK PIPE was fired up again and I wolfed down another three pieces before I got back down to the 80/81 split.

This stuff is freakin dangerous to your health, but what a way to go.  I am glad I do not live near Hazleton anymore or I would be 400 pounds.  LONG LIVE SENAPES!

Just a quick update to let you know that there is a new booth in the Fairgrounds Farmers' Market in Allentown, PA called "The Hazleton Connection".   The market was jammed the day I went so I didn't get a close look at all their offerings but I did see Senape's pizza, Hazle Park hot dogs and other meats and Victoria's chocolates.  Stay tuned for a more complete list after my next visit.

I want to add, The Knotty Pine was mentioned in this thread... it closed about a month ago, the owners retired.

Not only did The Pines close-the building was demolished a few weeks later. Car lot now.

Aww...that is a shame about Pines.....it was a great historic diner......especially sentimental to me, as it is where I had breakfast the day after I managed to escape from New York City on 9/11......on my cross country drive back home to Los Angeles.....it was just so comforting after that awful day.....made the world seem normal again...

As for Senapes.....nothing like it!!!....and I mean that is a positive way....wonder if they ship.....Im going to check now!

I think I posted about this in another thread too, but since this thread has returned, I'm adding that the Hazleton Connection booth (which sold Senape's Pizza among other Hazleton goodies) at the Allentown Farmers Market closed several months ago. One of the other booth operators told me they were doing an OK business, but not enough to cover a rent increase which was included in thier lease renewal.
