THEY EXIST: Tastykakes in New Haven | June 9, 2010

EDIT: I should preface this post with the fact that I have not yet experienced New Haven’s infamous “Cupcake Truck“. Based on the salivating expressions of those who have urged me to hunt it down, I am tempted to think Tastykakes are null and void up here when in a nearby radius. Obviously, this truck is on my list of things to do.

One of the first pieces of advice I got when I decided to move from the Philly burbs to New England was: “stock up on Tastykakes.”

Tastykakes, if you don’t know, are right up there on PA’s list of pride and joy things with cheese steaks and Rocky. Followed by Daryl Hall.

So when I saw THIS while strolling down the grocery aisles at Stop & Shop, it was like running into a long lost best friend from the fifth grade who moved away without a trace.

Don't worry, it'll be o-kake. New Haven has Tastykakes.

You thought she was dead and gone, but alas! There she is; for sale in aisle five.

So hear this outsiders- if you’re worried about not satisfying your massive Tastykake hunger when coming to New Haven, do not fear. The Kake is here. And the Kake is good.

Frankly, if it wasn’t for the glaring omission of WaWas and waves along New Haven’s shoreline (both of which I will be ranting about shortly, don’t worry) I’d say New Haven has it all. Having Tastykakes on board though, makes moving to a whole new land way easier to digest. It’s like the icing, if I may be so bold, on the cake.



  1. here’s a tip for when the cupcake truck parks outside our building…. try one cupcake and then just load up on frosting shots. i’m not in love with the cupcakes, but i could eat that frosting all day.

  3. I lived in Boston from ’05 to ’08, and from about 2007 on, TastyKakes were readily available in Stop n’ Shop
