Interesting thing about scrapple, I have never seen it here in Western Pennsylvania. It must be an Eastern thing. I suppose you don't see many pierogies in Eastern Pennsylvania, while there are even pierogi races at Pirates games. Must be like the difference between Sheetz and Wawa.
I grew up near Johnstown PA, on the Pittsburgh side of the Allegrippus () which firmly plants me in Western PA and we definitely had scrapple growing up. We had pirogis too, and halupki, halushki, and cherigi. I think the scrapple is a Pennsylvania Dutch invention (definitely more of an Eastern PA thing) but there are lots of German roots in the state so it made it's way west to us anyway.
P.S. Let's go Bucs!
P.P.S. Sheetz rules, Wawa drools...
