No. Just ... no.
Scrapple is from the teat of Satan. In my hometown (in Southern Maryland), a distant aunt would make scrapple (homemade). She owned a farm with plenty of livestock, so bacon and scrapple were the two big things that she would always churn out. I've seen the process of making scrapple - from the boiling of "unmentionables" to the grinding and to the inevitable baking or "casing". The latter allows you to put it in the fridge and slice it as you would if you bought it from the store.
Come to think of it, this might be the reason why I'm not keen on bacon too...

More "On Topic" Than Above:

I traveled a fair amount with my mother - mostly on the East Coast. This meant being exposed to Northeastern and Southern foods. What was interesting to me was that in the North, you could find variations of food from the South (and vice versa) but in the DMV area - it was a mix of south/north and local stuff.

One thing that I thought was a little more spread out than it really is (not that all of America ate it, but figured it was a combination of Southern and local dishes) .... Stuffed Ham. Interestingly enough, people I know in the South (now that I live in a part of it) haven't heard of it - nor have people in some regions of Maryland (even in the same state!). So it was super-local and still one of those "popular" things that are only in my hometown area.

What is scrapple
Is it. Board game


Check what the last guy just posted above. It sounds and lowkey looks nasty but it's quite good. It's a Pennsylvania thing though. (Actually I haven't had it in so long I'm not sure if I still find it tasty :p )

Beanie weenies. I ate them all the time as a kid, never see them get talked about much. Other than the disgusting canned versions.
