Tastykakes

Philly's Favorite Snack since 1914

Tastykakes have had their fair share of history in Philly. Founders Philip Baur and Hebert Morris brought the first snack cakes (sold at 10 cents a piece) to market in 1914. The cakes were such a hit the company’s tiny operations grew incredibly quickly. By the end of its first year, sales had reached $300,000. Up until the 1940s, these local treats were only distributed across Pennsylvania by horse! In fact, Tastykakes’ trademark horse and wagon became a familiar sight on the streets of Philly and were instrumental in the company’s success.

Today, you can get your Butterscotch Krimpets and Chocolate Cupcakes with just a click of your mouse—and don’t worry, it’ll get there faster than snail mail.

We're not the only ones who love them!
