Strawberry flavored treats from outastate!
From NYC, took a day trip to Philly yesterday, and hoped maybe I would see some interesting Tastykake products. We have them in NY, mostly by third party distributors, but they don't usually have all the products you see when you cross the Hudson. So while I was on my way back, and waiting for the train at N Phila. I stopped into the Pathmark there, and not only did I find Strawberry iced Krimpets, but also Strawberry Mini Moon Pies (which are not Tastykake, of course). Never seen anything like these in NY, (including a Mini sized Moon pie altogether) so I grabbed the family pack of both.
Interesting, but still nothing like the Strawberry Shake Cake made by Campbell Taggart nearly 20 years ago. (Campbell Taggart has become Earth Grains, and is now owned by Sara Lee, and it seems that Rainbo and Colonial bread are either discontinued, but you can still find bakery stores for them on online yellow pages, and Break Cake, seems to be completely gone now. You can't even find it on searches. (Wouldn't ie be nice if Sarah Lee then started making the Shake Cakes, as I remember from my cildhood, them making Vanilla Chocolate and Strawberry iced cupcakes).
Tastykake also had graham craker crusted vanilla pudding pies. I had gotten enough "junk", so passed up those.
