Scrapple - Dear Lord!  They kept feeding me that stuff when I was in Pennsylvania...it was awful, I am still recovering from the emotional scars....it IS pecular to Yankees then?  I am safe from it in The South?

Can't be entirely certain, but I believe you're safe so long as you stay out of Pennsylvania. As I'm not in the habit of eating meals in Amish Country farther west, I wouldn't know if scrapple followed them to this neighborhood.

It might be that scrapple is one of those ancestral foods that get trotted out now and then to remind descendants how grateful they should be for the distance between their antecedants and themselves. Like lutefisk.
