Our first stop was Maple Donut’s in York PA. There are actually a few locations in York but I like the one of East Market St. best because the interior is so cute. Maple donut’s is still a family owned business that was started in 1946. Of course we had to get a dozen to bring home and share. When you buy a dozen, you get a baker’s dozen–so one to sit down and eat there.
After Maple’s we went to a few thrift shops in York, then headed back toward home to Hanover PA. Since Molly had never been to the Utz chip tour I had to take her. Then we stopped in the Utz shop and picked up a souvenir drinking glass.
After Utz it was time for lunch so we visited Crabb’s Tropical Treat drive-in. Unfortunately I didn’t get any good photos because I forgot to bring my camera and the iPhone ones are not so great, but you can see some great photos here (love this blog too by the way!) Crabb’s was founded in 1953 and has the teletray push button menus for ordering from your car. I had the veggie & cheese sub which was really good, but if I was a meat eater I would have been intrigued enough to order the “french poodle” because of it’s name alone!
It was a perfect quick day trip, and next time I will not forget my real camera! I got a bunch of fun things at the thrift shops that I will photograph properly soon. I’ve acquired quite a few fun dish ware items in the past couple of months.
