I'm participating in a food swap. I have to send an assortment of food items that are made in Chicago or indicative of Chicago. Here's the catch, I just moved here on the first (did the y'all give it away).
Give me a hand with some ideas of food items that I can ship? So far, I'm thinking Garrett's popcorn or Nuts on Clark, sport peppers, celery salt and that crazy green relish. I heard that the brownie was invented in Chicago, but I'm looking more for local/regional things that aren't readily avaialble outside of the area. Is Fanny May still locally owned? Any other local speciality shops that do something spectacularly? I live in Andersonville, but I'm out in the 'burbs on occasion. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
