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 (www.philly.com)

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.
