“Nobody bakes a cake as tasty as a Tastykake…” Sing it with me now! I remember that song from commercials when I was a kid and still find myself singing it from time to time. Weird, I know. But it’s so catchy and they’re so yummy! Tastykake baked goods have been some of my favorite since I was a kid. The Kandy Kakes are my #1 with Butterscotch Krimpets running a very close second. Mmmm. So good. Tastykake is located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, only about an hour away from where I grew up. Their products aren’t available nationwide, but if you’re lucky enough to live in along the East Coast or Southeast of the US, you’ve probably seen them in stores and know and love them.
Did you know that Tastykake also makes donuts? I actually didn’t but I’m glad I found out because, as expected, they’re also delicious! This Friday June 7 is National Donut Day and to celebrate, I got a nice box to sample and we’ve been sharing with our friends and my kids have been enjoying these sweet treats, too. It goes without saying that I’ve been enjoying them too, right?!
Tastykake makes donuts in several different flavors. The powdered sugar donuts are always a hit and these were so fresh with nice moist cake and a sweet sugary coating. I like the mini ones myself. If they’re smaller you’re allowed to have two. 😉
My kids devoured the chocolate covered donuts. And who could blame them? I think these were Leo’s favorite.
My personal favorite are the cinnamon powdered donuts. They are just perfect with a cup of coffee. And who says donuts are just for breakfast? They make a yummy snack with a little fruit in the afternoon, too. Lily ate one with a bunch of raspberries after school. I didn’t really think I’d care for the plain donuts so much but was definitely pleasantly surprised. They’re so fresh and moist, perfect for dunking in milk or coffee. You know what else surprised me? I loved the Coconut Crunch Mini Donuts. I’m really not a big coconut fan but these were fantastic. Just a little bit of toasty, sugary crunch outside of a yummy, freshly baked donut. They were amazing!
What better holiday to celebrate than National Donut Day?! I can’t think of one. If you’re not sure, check if there’s a store near you that carries Tastykake products.
