For everyone who has moved away from the Pennsylvania area to a state without access to the favorite foods of our past, the Pennsylvania General Store provides excellent service fulfilling our accustomed food favorites, which for me is spiced wafers and Tastycakes. My orders for multiple boxes of these treats are efficiently and promptly shipped to my home. I couldn't be happier with the experience.
Old Fashioned Treat

Moving to Las Vegas meant we haven't been able to enjoy these cookies we grew up with in PA. It was wonderful to learn that we can have them delivered. Every "ginger snap" we've tried here is a very pale imitation.

I really miss having these cookies when I lived in Pennsylvania. I am so happy that you sell these you're around. I have bought them several times already.
Spiced & Yummy!

These wafers are out of this world! Great with hot tea or hot cocoa!
Great service and taste of home

I've ordered from PA general store several times. I'm living in SC and I miss living in PA, in particular the Philly region so much, but I can always count on PA general store to provide me with a taste of home. They have a great selection and excellent customer service as well.
Sweetzels Spiced Wafers
Nov 8, 2020 | By Gwyneth Saunders
Autumn doesn't happen without Sweetzel's Spiced Wafers. From the time I was a child, these have always meant October and November. When I was in the Navy, there was always at least one box in the care packages my parents sent me - no matter where I was during those 26 years. There have been a few years since I moved away from the Mid-Atlantic, but now that I can order them online I order enough for me (well, there really is never enough of them) and my Pennsylvania-native neighbor. They are THE BEST!
Sweetzels Spiced Wafers,

I grew up in Philadelphia and always enjoyed this time of year having Spiced Wafers. I am now 70 years old, lived all over the US but to this day I still order them. Nothing like a hot cup of tea and A spiced wafer to dip. They did get a bit smaller in size through the years but they still taste exactly as I remember them.
Owner Response: Great idea- dipping your spiced wafer in your tea. Sounds delicious!
1Ist time ordering.
Nov 2, 2020 | By Barbara A Asselta
First time ordering; Was completely satisfied with the quickness of the service and the freshness of the product. Will definitely be placing another order.
Owner Response: We look forward to assisting you again soon. Thank you for your review. We're so happy you found us!

Taste of Philly down in Florida!
October in Pennsylvania
Oct 29, 2020 | By Richard Nestor
My mom would get these every year around Halloween, and nothing says home in PA like Spiced Wafers. Dunking them in milk is my fav way to eat, but they are just as good alone. Thanks for bringing back great childhood memories for this 60 year old. Looking forward to turning my Grandson (coming Jan 30, 2020) on to these. Gotta keep the Philly in a Nevada baby.
Oct 29, 2020 | By Patti Drake
I took one bite of the wafer and was instantly transported back home to the Philly of my childhood. My Dad used to buy these wafers at halloween time and we just loved them. Wish they were available in the Midwest.
A seasonal favorite
Oct 12, 2020 | By George
Just a sweet and as full of seasonal flavor as I remember growing up in Philly. Can not get these in MI, so we order them by mail. Never a disappointment.
My favorite cookie
Oct 2, 2020 | By Marquita Thomas
These are my absolute favorite cookie. I always look forward to September when they are stacked on the shelves; then I moved to Texas... They have Spiced Wafers but no way near my favorite, So I finally tried the internet and I'm so happy I did.
Owner Response: We're so happy you found us too!
Sep 18, 2020 | By Susan Sims
The Switzels have change since I lived in the Philadelphia area. The molasses content is different, there was not any soy in the original product and the size and look are different. Unfortunately I will not be purchasing anymore of these.
Owner Response: Thank you for the feedback. I am sorry to hear that the Sweetzel's wafers are not as you remembered. I will be sure to share your comments with our Sweetzel vendor as well.

The best fall cookie. I look forward to Sweetzels season. I used my vegan app. I scanned the barcode and they are definitely vegan. I can share these with my vegan family. Delicious. Thank you Pennsylvania General Store. You make it so easy to order.
Fall has arrived!
Sep 10, 2020 | By Kathy Munroe
You know fall has arrived when spiced wafers become available! This is my favorite time of year.....cooler temps, leaves changing colors and spiced wafers. I have loved these cookies since I was a little girl and I was so happy to receive them in my order from the PA general store! Thanks for making stuff from home available to us who have moved away.
Taste of home

Reliving My Memories of Pennsylvania
Aug 27, 2020 | By Eileen Rodden
When I was just a little kid we would have a box of Sweetzles Spiced Waffers and Winesap apples as our treat in the fall. It was the best taste, sweet and bitter. I remember going to Styer's Orchard to get the bushel basket of apples, taste some cider and beg our father to get some apple cider. He did and we all enjoyed crunching spiced waffers and winesap apples and cider. The smell of burning leaves, chilly Sunday afternoons and Bucks County farmland. I miss it.
Father-in Law was pleased
Aug 21, 2020 | By Mitchell M Wilf
My father-in law, in St. Augustine Florida cannot get the Sweetzel's spice wafer down there so for his birthday we sent him 10 boxes. He's happy and munching!
Lives up to the Hype!
Jul 31, 2020 | By Alisa Reino
I'm a spice fan, and these Spiced Wafers truly are to die for! East Coast family members have been singing their praises for a long time, and the wafers are definitely worth seeking out and trying! I'm a new convert. The Pennsylvania General Store is easy to shop online, and the fast shipping and careful packaging of our wafers have made us true fans and new customers.
Quick shipping on a hard to find product
Jul 23, 2020 | By Kelly
This is the ONLY place to find Sweetzels Spiced Wafers in the middle of the summer! They are reasonably priced and standard shipping is super fast! This is the second time we have ordered and both times we've had an excellent experience.
Love PA General store!!
Jul 23, 2020 | By Carol S.
Great customer service and a nice variety of hometown goodies! I was contacted when one item was lagging behind a little and we worked it out. I appreciated them letting me know and working with me-- will continue to order from them in the future!
Can't live without Sweetzels Spiced Wafers!
Jul 20, 2020 | By David Stewart
Sweetzels Spiced Wafers are the perfect light after-dinner dessert. They have the perfect crunch texture and just the right combination of spice and sweetness. We order 5 boxes at a time and try to never be without them. We used to live within walking distance of Reading Terminal Market, so we miss some of the flavors of Philadelphia. We appreciate that the Pennsylvania General Store delivers.
Jul 4, 2020 | By Marilyn Riley
Excellent product. Originally from Philadelphia I grew up with spiced wafers and am grateful that they are still being made and I can get them at anytime. Communication from the company Ordering process was great. Thank you
Owner Response: We're delighted to hear you enjoy Sweetzels spiced wafers and remember them from your childhood.
A Treat from Home
Jun 25, 2020 | By Judith Burns
Oh, how I miss Pennsylvania where I spent most of my life. I now live in Colorado in retirement. Many of my friends have also transplanted. Then, I discovered PENNSYLVANIA GENERAL STORE on line and now I can send Pennsylvania favorites to all my family and friends. Recently, sent Sweetzels Spiced Wafers to Florida and they were a perfect gift for an ex-Philadelphian. I see lots more to order, but first will come a soft pretzel order for this Pennsylvania-born lady. It truly is a Pennsylvania treat.
Owner Response: We love being able to ship Pennsylvania items to ex-pats and their friends.

I have been ordering these cookies for myself and friends love them!!
Oct 25, 2019 | By Annette DiMarco
They were as delicious as I remember! I had purchased them years ago from Big Lots and got hooked on their excellent flavor. Instead of graham cracker, I've used them for making pie crusts. But I simply enjoy them with coffee or a nice cold glass of milk. And now that Fall has arrived I couldn't help but think of Sweetzels!
Oct 24, 2019 | By Dee Bacon
I love these spicy cookies from my childhood in Philadelphia area. I received them so quickly I was impressed and delighted to open a box and savor some with a hot apple cider.
Owner Response: This is our favorite way to enjoy spiced wafers too!

The last cookie left in America from the old days. Have not changed since I was a kid - Trenton NJ . Please never change it !!
Sep 21, 2019 | By Lucy Kapshuck
I grew up enjoying these cookies each fall. We had them with warm apple cider. They are the best cookies ever. I am very happy that I can still revisit the good old days.
Great Service and prompt Delivery!!

Took a chance ordering from a place I never ordered from before and it worked out great!!! Received my order as promised and it was wrapped perfectly with no breakage. I will order from The Pennsylvania General store again!

Delicious cookie! Excellent compliment to scoop of Rainbow Sherbet after a summer dinner.
Owner Response: Hello Sarah, Sweetzels Spiced Wafers compliment to any cold and refreshing treat. You should try the Spice Wafer with Bassett's Ice Cream it's a wonderful combination! Yummy...
Jul 11, 2019 | By Priscilla Bergeron
Wonderful cookies just like I remember growing up in PA when they were only available in the fall. So glad I can receive them in NC anytime of the year.
BEST Spiced Wafters Anywhere!
Jun 23, 2019 | By Ruth Wrigley
The only time I could get these Spiced Wafters were in the fall each year, when my parents would come to S.C. In May I went to visit my brother in PA and found them. I looked them up on the internet and that is how I final y found where to order them. Thank You! My family always liked these Spiced Waffers.
Sweetzel's Spiced Wafers
Jun 7, 2019 | By Sarah A. Riley
Absolutely delicious, especially with fruity sorbet on a warm summer evening! Just the right spicy taste balancing the fruity flavor of the sorbet!
Owner Response: Hello Sarah, Yum Yum! Sweetzels Spiced Wafers are absolutely delicious and a great snack for any occasion. Have you ever tried Spiced Wafers sprinkled on top of Bassett's Vanilla Ice Cream? It truly is a special treat!!
Sep 17, 2017 | By Joy Toole
My sister-in-law sent us three boxes of these last week. My husband and I already ate two boxes of these delicious cookies. I remember growing up in Philly eating these when I was pregnant with my first child. I craved these.
