Tastykake Snowballs Unleashed
Good relief in a good treat
Occasionally I find I go to a store to get unusual snack foods. I previously would purchase Tastykake Dreamies. It is Tastykake’s rendition of the Hostess Twinkie.
They are solid. The reality is, in Hostess absence, at the time, Tastykake would present the best snack food alternative.
They have done it once more but in a not so subtle way. Tastykake is introducing, while Hostess is preparing their full return, products similar to what Hostess had along with their own products. This is very clear with the presentation of the Tastykake Snowballs, the Pink Version.
1) What snack food do you enjoy most?
2) What company would create a better version of your snack cake or snack food you loved?
Please comment below.
Tastykake would start in 1914. Philip J. Baur, a Pittsburgh baker, and Herbert T. Morris, a Boston egg salesperson had an idea. They would deliver fresh, premium-baked goods using the finest ingredients on a daily basis.
What is not clear is the exact introduction of the Tastykake Snowballs in the Tastykake family.
I have come to understand Hostess would create the Hostess Snoballs, in 1947, because of the end of the rationing of goods, like flour and sugar, during World War II.
Their popularity would grow after the war, as Americans could again taste processed baked goods. In 1950, the Snoballs would receive a pink color and a filling.
Tastykake Snowballs have always been white, until now, in my personal opinion. This new pink version of Tastykake Snowballs has a lot to show. Hostess, as shown on their website, intends to bring back the Hostess Snoballs in the very near future.
Tastykake Snowballs start with a silky marshmallow coating. Drizzle this with a coconut coat with a beautiful shade of orchid or cameo pink, it is the start of a wonderful snack.
When you first bite into the snack cake, you realize how soft the combination of marshmallow and coconut are with a subtle sweetness and the light expectation of the chocolate cupcake underneath. The chocolate cupcake is firm, dense and gives you a blast of rich chocolate cake and vanilla cream in the first bite.
In comparison, the Hostess Snoballs have a softer cupcake with a thicker vanilla cream similar to the original Hostess Twinkie. In the coming days, it is going to come down to which taste you prefer when you look over the snack isle of your favorite store.
As you chew a Tastykake Snowball, the light sweet cream, soft marshmallow, coconut and chocolate work together to give you the sweet treat you deserve. Tastykake Snowballs are a respectful treat, are tasty and exist as a true challenger of snack cakes, even for Hostess.
