Tastykake Empire In Danger Of Crumbling

Tastykake, manufacturers of numerous kinds of prepackaged snack foods, could be forced to sell or merge after a newly opened factory failed to generate the hoped-for savings. Krimpets, Kandy Kakes, Koffee Kakes, and Kreamies could all be put on the chopping block. And I don’t know if you’re aware, but those kinds of snacks do better in your tummy than on a chopping block.

Are you a Tastykake fan worried about what this might mean for the future of your plastic-wrapped treats? Then why haven’t you been buying more? Flagellate yourself in the comments.
