Which Products Is New York Known For?

New York offers a wide variety of products, from food to upscale bath and body products and more. The Empire State is home to an assortment of goodies, from its delicious cheeses and dairy products to chocolate (including this tasty sponge chocolate from Buffalo) to coffee and more. 

New York is home to the famous New York-style pizza, which features a large and thin crust, a light layer of delicious sauce, and spices such as dried basil, oregano and red pepper flakes. If you can't deliver them a large slice of their favorite pie, the next best gift is this 'I Love NY Pizza' t-shirt.
