Irish potato candy

Irish potato candy

Irish Potato Candy is a Philadelphia delicacy though it is neither Irish nor a potato.

It is an extremely sweet treat, generally made up of some blend of coconut, confectioner's sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and milk or cream. These treats are about the size of a large marble and are quite popular around St. Patrick's Day. Oh Ryan's makes the largest distribution of Irish Potatoes, delivering them to major chains and smaller candy stores throughout the nation, though most of the deliveries are focused in the Philadelphia area.

Many people believe that the Irish Potato was created as a commemoration of the Irish Potato Famine.
