Tastykake in Georgia

My favorite sweets as a kid were made by Tastykake.  Tastykakes are one of the few good things to come out of Philadelphia, PA.

The chocolate cream-filled cupcakes (see above photo) were the favorite, followed by Butterscotch Krimpets.

The tastykake company has been purchased by Georgia bakery Flowers.  See the story at here (

From the article:
Flowers wants to sell Mrs. Freshley's sweet rolls, Nature's Own breads and other Flowers products "throughout Tasty's geographic footprint" in the mid-Atlantic states, and "will require additional acquisitions to add needed production capacity" to make that happen. Flowers also said it will offer Tastykakes down South.

Currently you'll find a small sampling of Tastykakes at Publix.  Hopefully soon we'll see Tastykake racks throughout Dunwoody. 

Since we are giving a plug to Tastykakes, I''ll also mention Boyer Candies.  The Mallow Cup is an all-time favorite of mine. These are hard to find in Georgia, and I've never seen one in Dunwoody.
