Reading Terminal Market sits in the heart of downtown Philadelphia. Look up and you'll see neon signs advertising everything from greasy cheesy goods to produce. Look around and you'll see fresh lobster, Amish snacks, and restaurant stands selling a variety of local or locally influenced cuisine. Half the fun is just walking around seeing and the crazy things being sold (see Mike Tyson special below).
One of the stands was selling the oddest assortment of chocolates we've ever seen. Is there really such a large novelty chocolate market in Philadelphia?
I'm not aware of any other place where one can you purchase a miniature effigy of the person who served them (effigy and server pictured below):
