Pennsylvania products you can't get on the west coast

I've lived most of my 24-year-old life in Central Pennsylvania, but I'm moving to San Francisco in a few weeks. I'm excited about the new food and drink prospects out there, but I'm wondering what sorts things one might miss when leaving Pennsylvania, especially for the west coast.

I know a lot of people who move away buy cases of Yuengling when they come back to visit, although I'm more of a craft beer guy. There are definitely some PA beers I need to stock up on before I go. I know people used to stock up on Tastykakes too, but I'm not sure if their more widely available now?

I know I'm never going to get a decent cheesesteak in CA, but then again that's been hard to get in central PA too. Scrapple is probably hard to come by, but I've never been big on it anyway. I've never been too crazy about most Pennsylvania Dutch food really...except for pumpkin whoopie pies and oatmeal pie (which I think is a southern import).

The abundance of cheap snack foods will be missed. So many brands of chips and pretzels. I'm going to have to eat a lot of lard chips before I go.

what else?
