According to Wikipedia – a snack food (commonly shortened to snack) is seen in Western culture as a type of food not meant to be eaten as a main meal of the day (breakfast, lunch, supper). Rather, the food is intended as a snack: something to temporarily tide a person’s hunger, provide a brief supply of energy for the body, or something to be eaten for enjoyment of the taste.

    I know of a bakery in Chestnut Hill, Pa called Bredenbeck’s that sells schnecken. They look similar to my schnecken but taste a little cakier, more like a Ruglach. Also, you can buy schnecken from “the schnecken lady” at specialty stores around eastern Montgomery County. There is a deli in Elkins Park called the Little Dipper that carries them.

    I LOVE schnecken. Not so easy to find in Center City. I would check Famous Fourth Street Deli. (Jewish deli, may have schnecken!)

    Here are some of my favorite schnecken haunts on the Main Line:
    The Ultimate Bake Shoppe, Ardmore Farmers’ Market (Ardmore)
    Delaware Market House (Gladwyne)
    Love From Home (Babis Pharmacy, Bala Cynwyd)
    Bakery House (Bryn Mawr)
