Powdered Sugar Mini Donuts – Tastykake – Giant Eagle in Erie, PA but get them at any grocery or convenience store that is awesome

Quick check in because something epic is happening! My baby is taking her first nap in her crib!! So I ran downstairs to eat, which is surprisingly hard to accomplish, and decided to eat as many Powdered Sugar Mini Donuts from Tastykake that I could consume. That is one of the great perks of these bite-sized treats – you can shove at least 15 down your throat in about a minute.

If you’re from the Philadelphia area Tastykake is a brand you have probably loved your whole life because it is amazing and delicious. It’s like Little Debbie but better. It’s the same as Wawa being WAY better than Sheetz for people who know….

One of my greatest regrets in life is that I missed getting a tour of the Tastykake factory that they offered to the public. Since Tastykake has been around since 1914 and offering tours regularly, I didn’t put it at the top of my list of things to do when I lived in Philadelphia. When I finally called to book my tour of a little heaven and have the freshest Tatstykake I ever would have the privilege of eating, I was informed that they ended public tours because of insurance reasons only a month before I called. Sometimes life teaches you hard lessons.

Anyway, that baby nap was short lived. So here’s what it is before she starts to cry. Cake donuts that taste like dense, kind-of-dry-cake with generous powdered sugar that goes great on road trips, with hangovers, and for house guests that you don’t want to wake up and cook for in the wee hours of the morning. The closer you get to Philly, I find the fresher the quality of the donuts. Being over six hours away (or eight depending on how fast you drive – dad ❤ ) makes these slightly less fresh than a downtown Philly Tastykake (or Northeast Philadelphia if I am remembering correctly where their factory is located). If you’re craving sugar and convenience go buy a bag! You won’t (as long as you’re not a hater) be disappointed!

THE BREAKDOWN: Powdered Sugar Mini Donuts

Store: Giant Eagle in Erie or pretty much any convenience store or grocery store in Pennsylvania and beyond. I’m not sure how far beyond? Click here for a link to their store locator.

What they want to highlight: They have tasty kakes?

What I thought was the highlight: I can eat 1,000+ calories in under a minute.

Rating out of 5 stars: 3

Would I buy it again?: Of course! Over and over again…

What could make it better?: Getting them in Philadelphia

pile of powdered sugar donutsStack of little wonder. (Not pictured – how many I actually ate.)

What other Tastykake snacks do you love? They make amaze pies (I like lemon and chocolate) and cupcakes (the traditional chocolate with white cream filling and that lacy top are somehow better than the competition) and a bunch of other on-the-go treats. How many bags can I get of these for Christmas? Leave a comment 🙂 Like my post 🙂 Follow my Instagram 🙂 Like my Facebook Page 🙂 SHARE THIS WITH A FRIEND (<—Would be the most awesome) 🙂
