It's simply not wrong to say that New York is the snack capital in the world. Sure, when it comes to haute cuisine, it's not Paris or Rome, but when it comes to snacks, the 'Big Apple' beats any other city in the world. The lifestyle here is fast-paced and mostly on-the-go, so it's no surprise that the food that's most popular are ones that are easy to make and easier to eat. Especially since several of the city's big and small business bank on the city's classics. The great thing is that even if you're not in New York, you can still make and enjoy its signature snacks at home!

Let's start with an instant classic: the New York Cheesecake! One mouthful and you can already imagine yourself chilling in swanky SoHo resto devouring the dessert.

Though it's most popular in Manhattan, just about every corner of this illustrious city offers this delicious and distinct take on the cheesecake. So much so that even restaurants way beyond the city serve the dessert as well. Whether it's the delectable cream cheese base or the tangy fruity icing, the New York Cheesecake is always a great treat to have!

Whoever thought of pairing fried chicken with freshly-made waffles deserves a spot in the culinary hall of fame! Who knew such a combination would taste so good? And trust New Yorkers to make it into one of their favourite snacks. Go to any diner in Manhattan and you just might see it on their menu. It's one of the ultimate comfort food combos that has since defined both American and New York cuisine.

Pepperoni Pizza

New York has some of the biggest Italian-immigrant communities in the world. In fact, a huge percentage of the city's population are of Italian descent. And as a result, many of the country's rich cuisine has been adapted by the city. One classic that's always a mega favourite in the 'Big Apple' is a slice of pepperoni pizza. Well, just about any kind of pizza will do for a New Yorker, especially since most slices in the city can cost as low as a dollar each! But pepperoni is often the best way to go for a light and easy yet fulfilling snack.

Cronut

Trust New York to put their own spin on another city's classic snack. Here in the 'Big Apple,' a simple croissant is not enough. They had to mix it in a doughnut to make it more American! And thus, the 'cronut' was born! Now a huge favourite in the city, this sweet and rich pastry is the kind of sweet snack that always hits the spot. You can enjoy it with some coffee in the afternoon as you talk with your friends. Or even late at night when you wake up feeling hungry for a midnight snack.

Classic Pretzel

What's another classic New York pastry? The soft pretzel! When you go to the city, you'll literally see a food stall selling it. Just about any street in the 'Big Apple' sells this treat, so it's not surprising that it's often associated with the city. It's the kind of tummy-pleasing snack where you can enjoy a basketball or baseball game. Or when you're spending your break sitting outside, watching the people pass by. And, when it's finally the colder season, nothing warms you up more than a freshly-baked pretzel and some hot chocolate to dip it in.

Black and White Cookie

If you were to be asked what cookie is quintessential in New York, you probably won't know the answer. The chocolate chip? Nope! The gingerbread cookie? Negative! The oreo? Close, but not exactly! Bakeries, restaurants, and cafes all offer the same unique cookie: the black and white cookie. A soft round treat coated with vanilla and chocolate icing,  its the intermix of flavours that gets New Yorks going! One one end, you get this light and milky taste, and on the other, a rich chocolatey delight. You don't have to pick one or the other. They're both already there for your convenience!
