An Egg-cellent Holiday

Native Philadelphians know that there's more to the city's culinary traditions beyond pretzels and cheesesteaks. For nearly 100 years, Zitner's has produced and sold confections locally. A few months before every Easter, its Butter Krak Eggs and other egg varieties - all gluten free - appear in area markets and convenience stores. Butter Krak Eggs, the most well known version, are made with butter cream and long thread coconut, enrobed with dark chocolate that's blended with toasted coconut. Other varieties include Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate, Butter Cream Dark Chocolate, Double Coconut Dark Chocolate, Coconut Cream Dark Chocolate and Marshmallow Dark Chocolate. One of Zitner's owners is gluten free, and the company maintains a protocol to ensure safe manufacturing practices.
