We've got some new Tastykake info via Matt Russell this morning:
To all Tasty fans in AZ and other parts far from Philly: Please excuse our growing pains!
We’re sorry you may be unable to find your favorite Tasty item in your area. As we expand Tastykake into new markets, we have to take into careful account a number of important matters—including maintaining quality and freshness and distribution logistics and costs. While most Tastykake items are available in our distribution area, we are simply not able to distribute certain classic Tastykake items in a way that preserves the high quality and freshness we’re known for. We appreciate your patience while we fix these issues and hope you enjoy other Tastykake items.
It appears to be from the TastyKake Facebook page, as seen here.
See what happens when people rattle a cage?
Just a note: Apparently, the folks over at Frankie's Cheesesteaks are in talks with Tastykake corporate about the 'Kakes. If you're interested in joining the fight, it would probably be worth the time for you to send your thoughts to those folks via their website or Facebook page.
