Allen’s Lane

    Jo Ann Allen. . . doesn’t . . . like . . . Tastykakes. Our Morning Edition host and somewhat new Philadelphia resident had her first (and second and third) dose of Tasty yesterday after hearing all the hubbub Philadelphians are making over the company’s financial trouble.


    After sampling Chocolate Junior, Tasty-Klair, Chocolate Kandykakes, Lemon Pie and Butterscotch Krimpets, Jo Ann confirms: they’re not so tasty.

    We’ll blame it on the new factory location.

    Feed the Feed: Would Jo Ann have liked Tastykakes more had she sampled something different?
