The Apple Scrapple Festival is a Must for Scrapple Fans

It was the second full weekend in October. Looking around me, I saw people waiting in long lines for scrapple sandwiches at three separate vendors. That is when I knew I was in the right place. I was with my people again. I was attending the Apple Scrapple Festival.

Winter 2016: Scrapple Beer is Coming to Bottles

Beer for Breakfast? Yes, please! But just to be clear, I'm talking about a beer by Dogfish Head. Its ingredients:

  • Maple syrup
  • Barley smoked over applewood
  • Roasted Chicory
  • Lactose (milk sugar)
  • Coffee

And something else...what is that one last ingredient? I'm having a hard time remembering...[scratches head]. Oh right, scrapple!

Know Your Scrapple Brands: RAPA Scrapple

RAPA, located in Bridgeville, Delaware, is the world's largest producer of scrapple. Wow, that is a great phrase to read.

Scrapple lovers often have a brand-of-choice, so RAPA's distinctive red, white and blue packaging is a welcome sight to many. Growing up in Maryland, this was once the only scrapple I knew.

RAPA Scrapple History

In 1926, brothers Ralph and Paul Adams started a scrapple manufacturing plant. Notice the bold letters I added? That's where the RAPA name comes from. Did I just blow your mind? Probably not, but still, it's an interesting fact.

Though RAPA was bought by Jones Dairy Farm in 1981, their scrapple continues to be manufactured in Bridgeville with a staff of 60, in a facility that looks like a giant brick of their own scrapple. No word on if they are looking to hire scrapple quality control tasters, though I'm sure they'd have little trouble filling that position.
