Scrapple vs. Liver Pudding?

You can buy both in PA and MD. In MD, liver pudding is usually called ring pudding. As for pan pudding, I asked at the Amish Food Market in Cockeysville if it was the same as liver pudding. (I had seen it sold that way at the Allentown Fairgrounds Farmer's Market.) The woman behind the counter didn't know and didn't look at the ingredients. Anyway, both scrapple and liver pudding have that gray color, and neither one tastes strongly of liver. I liked liver pudding long before I could stomach liver. Scrapple contains mush (or, if you prefer, "polenta"), which is probably why I grew up eating it with syrup. IHOP (at least in Reisterstown) has their own scrapple, which is excellent but not on the menu, as far as I know. I had to ask.

mail order cheese?

YEAH, TOAST! I agree that the "chocolate cheese" (which I compare more to peanut butter) was my ultimate educational triumph from this experience! With Wegman's, I can now get it almost any time I want to make the trip, but I wouldn't even know what it was if not for Gerard Paul, whose name I had totally forgotten prior to finding this blog!
