We Did It, Tucson: Tastykakes Are Back!

Posted By on Thu, Jul 11, 2013 at 10:30 AM

TastyKakes are coming back to Tucson!

Over the past couple weeks, we've written about the trouble Frankie Santos of Frankie's South Philly Cheesesteaks was having in his quest to keep the REAL Tastykakes in his shop. It was a business decision on the part of the Tastykakes company — it seems that, for whatever reason, shipping to Tucson wasn't financially viable for them.

But after several postings on Facebook by Frankie and on several local foodie Facebook pages (including mine, The Well-Fed Foodie) people wrote to complain. KVOA even covered the story.

Tucson, we have overcome: TastyKakes will be back at Frankie's shop on Campbell Avenue later this month.

It's not quite an overthrow of an oppressive regime, but the people spoke and Tastykakes listened.

Three cheers for the people!
