What is THE food-related item that defines Philadelphia (gift idea)??

Hey all. So I am in a Christmas Gift Exchange with a group of people in an online forum/community. There are about 30 of us participating and we are going to ship food or food-related items to our secret giftee. The suggestion was that we each pick something that is regionally/locally known and ship that. There is a $25 limit (including shipping) and I was looking for some suggestions. Most of the people in this group are avid food preparers and eaters. Many are hunters (I'm not) and we all own smokers that we smoke our own meats, ribs, pulled pork, etc.

Obviously Philly is "known" for cheesesteaks, but I can't really ship that (for under $25). Any suggestions? This could be a local sauce, wine, etc. And I don't really want to do Tastycakes or soft pretzels...

Thanks in advance!
