Central PA food and fun limericks

Maybe I have been overcome by heat. Maybe I’ve been so busy lately that I can’t come up with a coherent blog post. Maybe the worm is just turning in my brain. Whatever the reason, I’ve decided to come up with a few limericks about eating and having fun in Central PA.

See if you can figure out the last word(s) of each limerick. Leave your answers in the comment section and I’ll comment with the answers in a few days!

DC transplant, I thought I can’t get by

Without cookies and sweets I’d surely cry

Alas, not to worry

Grab molasses, hurry

The Amish can bake up a _________



Imbibe this and your cheeks might get flushy

A cool drink with ice, decidedly mushy

Bizarre pairing no doubt

Hershey Vineyards, the route

Go there this summer to try a wine ______


PS- You would know the answers if you followed me on twitter, since I’ve talked about each of these Central PA highlights there!
