I am currently listening to the Flowers Foods latest conference call, so thought I would write another Home Pride Update post.
Not much about bread in the post today, this one is focused on snack cakes.
Today while I was out shopping I took a look at what snack cakes were available.
I had heard that my favorite snack cake from Hostess was available again, and wanted to see if I could find it.
I did find a box of Zingers, but unfortunately someone opened the box. This was the last one on the shelf, and I decided that I would not buy it since it had been opened. However, I now know that they are available and know where I can find them.
Do I really need to buy some? I really need to watch what I eat, but they do bring back many memories and are so good.
I am starting to see some Tastykake items show up in California, and am looking forward to seeing more.
I took this picture while I was back in Missouri for my parent’s Golden Anniversary.
They are talking a lot about the snack cake business in the conference call. The two main Flowers Foods brands are Tastykake and Mrs. Freshley’s. In the picture above you can see just a few of the different offerings that they have.
Flowers Foods plans on expanding the distribution of their snack cakes throughout their distribution area. They did mention that Tastykake would be a major contributor to their growth in California.
Mrs. Freshley’s has a snack cake that is similar to Twinkies.
When I wrote the post Twinkie Wannabes, it would have been nice to try this one. I picked these up when I was in Missouri and they were really good.
What is your favorite snack cake?
