Tasty Kakes for Easter Baskets We Say Yes, Please!

We received a sample in exchange for a honest an unbiased review.

Our kids love having treats for after school or after dinner. Sometimes on a Saturday morning I let them have some donuts for breakfast. Okay, let's be honest mom and dad love having special treats too. When TASTY KAKES sent us over some of their new treats we were all very excited to contribute to this review.



Tasty Kakes is sliding into Spring with delicious new treats such as strawberry, lemon and peach sweet rolls, cakes and donuts. All of these would make great Easter basket fillers or just a delicious treat to enjoy for the fun of it.



We received the Coconut Hippity Hops Kandy Kakes. These were my favorite, featuring a coconut patty coated in a rich dark chocolate. You can purchase these anywhere Tasty Kakes are sold until March 24 for around $4.49.



We also received Easter Snowballs that were a favorite of the kids. These are a creme filled chocolate cake covered in a pink coconut marshmallow coating. These are also available until March 24, wherever Tasty Kakes Tasty are sold for around $1.79.



Another treat that we received the kids absolutely loved were the Tasty Tweets Cupcakes. These sweet treats are a créme filled chocolate cake topped with icing and colorful Easter sprinkles. These are available until March 24 wherever Tasty Kakes are sold for around $4.49.



You could throw some Easter Snowballs or any of these yummy treats in your little ones Easter basket and they would love them! These are all delicious treats that have thumbs up from my family.



On February 25, 1914 with $50,000 they raised from family members Philip Baur and Herbert Morris founded Tasty Baking Company. Philip was born to bake, his father owned the Baur Brothers Bakery. Herbert and Philip had the fresh idea of individually wrapped snack cakes baked and delivered fresh daily.

In the early days Tastykakes got around by way of horse and wagon. The trademark Tastykake horse and wagon became a familiar sight on the streets of Philadelphia.The company's last horse was retired in 1941. In 1922 Tasty Kakes moved to Hunting Park Avenue where it would remain for almost ninety years. The Hunting Park bakery was state of the art for it's time and included such technical wonders as a gravity fed ingredient system. With more sophisticated equipment Baur and Morris experimented with new kinds of products.

It was eventually decided that the Huntington Park bakery had seen it's day. Tastykake searched high and low for a new Philadelphia location and settled on the Navy Yard in South Philadelphia where the current state of the art bakery is built. In 2011 Tasty Baking merged with Flowers Foods, one of the largest baking companies in the U.S. It now operates as a wholly owned subsidiary of Flowers Foods. Joining with Flowers has allowed Tastykake to bring Philadelphia's favorite snack cakes to retail stores around the country, introducing millions of Americans to one of Philadelphia's best loved treats.
