Philadelphia, PA - One of Philadelphia's essential food icons is the Tastykake, exclusively manufactured by Tasty Baking Company. With a current headquarter at Philadelphia Naval Business Center, Tasty Baking has started its operation in 1914 led by Herbert T. Morris and Philip J. Baur.
Nobody Bakes A Cake As Tasty As A TastyKake
Their products were originally sold in the metropolitan area of Philadelphia but at present, they are already distributing on East Coast and expanding gradually across the United States. But Tastykakes remain to be solely associated with Philadelphia.
These Tastykakes are a really integral part of Philadelphia food history that Marie Antoinette, during the yearly celebration of Bastille Day held at Eastern State Penitentiary, declared famously "Let them eat Tastykake!" Indeed, Philadelphia food history is made richer by the unique individual histories of soft pretzels, cheesesteaks, and Tastykakes.
