When the original Philly Soft Pretzel Factory location had a line out the door, its founders knew they had a hit on their hands. That was in 1998; today, over 100 franchise locations serve their special-recipe soft pretzels. Each chewy treat is hand twisted, baked fresh, and served hot from the oven into the customer's waiting hands, or mouth if they're really hungry. Pretzels can be topped with traditional salt, or spiced up with garlic or sesame seeds, while a selection of dipping sauces ranging from cheddar cheese to sweet chocolate provide layers of dunking flavor. And for those who prefer their baked goods meaty, dough-wrapped dogs and cheesesteak-filled pretzels are available.

The top brass twisters at Auntie Anne's, one of the world's largest hand-rolled, soft-pretzel franchises, create enough twirly treats every year to wrap the earth in deliciously salted dough three times over. Pretzel professionals prepare a wide array of sweet and salty snacks, spiraling them into ornate knots with the delicacy of a grandmotherly sailor and baking them to golden brown in full view of customers. A plain pretzel offers a satisfyingly simple snack, while sacchariferous ingredients such as cinnamon sugar and toasted-almond toffee make tongues sweat with anticipation. Mouths will mambo to the Mediterranean flavors of the garlic pretzel, a perfect treat to submerge into a dunk tank of marinara or one of the other available dipping sauces. Or, sample slender tubewiches swathed in the warm embrace of pretzel dough with signature pretzel dogs. Pair braided bites with a chalice of lemonade or a frozen ICEE drink, both of which pack a flavorful punch that’s more refreshing than a brisk morning run that successfully evades a pursuing snow leopard.
As one of the largest authorized retailers for AT&T, Mobile Communications equips conversers with phones, accessories, and services to fit various lifestyles. Requiring a two-year agreement for activation and upgrades, the impressive phones—including GoPhones, data phones, smartphones, and 4G phones—assure that talk meets its technological match. Smartphones, including the Samsung Captivate ($99), impersonate small computers with 16 gigabytes of memory, a keyboard touchscreen, and that new microprocessor smell. Built from recycled plastics, the Samsung Evergreen supports MP3 files and graces fingertips with a qwerty keyboard ($69.99). For more advanced technophiles, the 4G Motorola Atrix's 4-inch screen displays crisp videos powered by a dual-core 1-gigahertz processor ($199.99), and the 4G HTC Inspire runs on the Android 2.2 operating system and records videos in 720 high definition ($99.99).
Everybody has a favorite style of pizza crust. Rather than take sides, the cooks at Family Nest Restaurant include several of the most popular, including Sicilian and thin crust. Atop gourmet pies they sprinkle ingredients such as buffalo chicken and baked ziti, one of Family Nest's many housemade Italian classics, which range from chicken florentine to veal marsala.
Besides Italian staples, the culinary team whips up pizzeria favorites such as eggplant parm subs, ham calzones with seven-cheese blends, and gourmet wraps. The Brando, for instance, combines pesto chicken, roasted red peppers, and mozzeralla cheese, the same foods Marlon Brando stuffed in his mouth to make that wheezy voice in The Godfather.
When its first location opened in 1996, Valenzano Winery was a modest endeavor. Fewer than 500 gallons came from the winery that year, doled out to a handful of local wine stores. But since then, Valenzano has expanded to three wineries, each crafting wine from grapes grown at southern New Jersey vineyards. From reds and whites to fruit wines—such as cranberry and blueberry—Valenzano's pours span a wide range of flavors and aromas. Visitors might try the Old Indian Mills Blend, an oak-aged reserve blend that's garnered awards.
