A buddy smuggled four Tastykake Pumpkin Pies, completely intact, back into California for me. What a gent!

Tastykake’s Pumpkin Pie is just as well-born as our hero. The dry flaky crust is deliciously salty, and there’s lots of it. Inside this wrapping is a moist, classic pumpkin pie filling. The taste is honest and direct, perhaps explained by the first four ingredients: flour, water, pumpkin, sugar… Tastykake’s got their priorities straight!

"Let me introduce myself..."

For ultimate happiness warm it up, ideally in your oven or worst case your microwave. Got whipped cream? Come on over! No, seriously though, if you do have whipped cream or ice cream, try it out on your warmed up little pie. I’m sure it will rock, even though I enjoyed mine “sans.”

An East Coast classic since 1914, Tastykake has evolved with the times. Their website offers a mail-order catalog, Corporate Gifts (!!), and branded merchandise like Krimpet-shaped rafts for the ocean or the pool.

NOTE: Additional props to Master Brewer Grodo Grassi. He mailed me a Tastykake Pumpkin Pie as part of a Halloween care package. However, yours truly ate it up for breakfast on All Saint’s Day after partying all night… and never got around to reviewing it. It just goes to show, dear readers, don’t always trust the narrator!
