Pope Francis made of mozzarella.

Papal-Mania is sweeping the nation and swamping the city! We’re drowning in a tsunami of draconian security measures, 24 hour hype from the news media, and an insane amount of  keepsakes. We’ve seen t-shirts, buttons, flags, bows, a stuffed Francis, a waving Francis, and cross shaped soft pretzels.

The best of the bunch came from the folks at Pastificio Deli – a mozzarella shaped Pope! They commissioned a local artist to sculpt a bust of the Pope and had molds made – genius! (Click on the photos to enlarge.)

Here’s hoping that the Pontiff enjoys His stay in our fair city; accomplishes His mission, grabs a cheesesteak, and moves on to the next stop of his tour!

    We walked through town on Thursday – they removed all of the mailboxes in Center City. It’s very strange!
