Y'all know I am a bonafide junk food junkie. There is very rarely a sugar, fat, and processed-whatever laden food I don't love. One of my very favorite categories of junk food has always been the snack cake. When I was little, it was Hostess. In college, I turned to my cheaper friend Little Debbie. But since moving to the East Coast, I have found the One Snack Cake to Rule Them All.
Nothing holds a kandle (hah!) to Tastykake. Seriously. Every variety of these suckers I've tried has been excellent, including some I didn't even think I liked. Most recently falling into that category is the Kandy Bar Kake. In my Spring VoxBox (don't know what that is? Go to Influenster and sign up--so much fun!) I received a Peanut Butter Kandy Bar Kake, made with Reeses Peanut Butter. And I am in love. So tasty. I'm anxious to try the peppermint (York) and S'Mores (Hershey's cocoa and graham cracker) versions.
But back to the peanut butter variety. The filling? Taste like Reese's PB cup filling, which is one of my favorite tastes ever (yeah, I know, lowbrow palette--sue me). The cake is light and fluffy. The chocolate covering is perfectly snack cake snappy. LOVE.
