Somebodyisfromhere.com pities you. He Grew up on the St. Patrick’s Day snack called Irish Potatoes. He assumed you did too. But, alas, it wasn’t until recently that he learned it was just a Philadelphia snack and you that you poor souls had to go it alone with Shamrock Shakes.
Commercially made Irish Potato Candy is a traditional Philadelphia confection, produced for over 100 years, that is not Irish and does not contain any potato.The candies have a coconut cream inside (generally made from some blend of coconut, confectioner’s sugar, vanilla, and cream or cream cheese) and are rolled in cinnamon on the outside, making them look like small potatoes.The treats are about the size of a large marble and are especially popular around St. Patrick’s Day.
