Tastykakes and Krimpets
For over a hundred years, the Tasty Baking Company has provided personal sized baked goods perfect for snacking to the Philadelphia area. Tastykakes, Kandy Kakes and Krimpets are sold across the region in WaWa markets, supermarkets, gas stations and convenience stores and pack a powerful taste of home and nostalgia for residents who've moved away from the area.
Whether you're craving a chocolate robed Kandy Kake, a sweet and moist Krimpet or one of the company's single serving pies, a Tastykake makes a great way to round out a meal. These delightfully satisfying treats are a constant presence in lunchboxes and make ideal afterschool snacks for kids living in the region, too. For young adults leaving home for the first time and living on a far off campus or working in a new city, Tastykakes provide a much needed connection to home; these mini cakes are a staple of care packages sent to camps, colleges and military bases.
Most Tastykake fans have a preferred style and flavor, ranging from the delightfully sweet and moist Krimpet sponge cakes to the wholesome goodness of a hand-sized fruit pie, each version and flavor has its own legion of fans. Some seasonal flavors sell out quickly, and residents compete to scoop them up at local grocery and convenience stores before they disappear each year. Staples like Krimpets, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Kandy Kakes are available year round.
Tastycakes have a strong nostalgic appeal, making them a highly coveted gift for Philadelphia, New Jersey and Pennsylvania residents who've relocated to other regions, but they are also designed and packaged with shipping in mind. Each little cake comes individually wrapped for freshness and arrives the instantly identifiable Tastykake box, which protects the cakes during shipping.
It's never been easier to send a sweet and nostalgic taste of home to someone living far away; Tastykakes ship well and stay fresh until the recipient has a chance to enjoy them. In the unlikely event of leftovers, these little cakes can be frozen and enjoyed at a later date. Tastykakes make an ideal gift for anyone craving a taste of home and are irresistible to any former Pennsylvania or New Jersey resident.
