I don’t live in an area that has Tastykakes, so while passing through on a trip I knew I had to take advantage. I didn’t want to buy more than one thing because I’ve been watching my weight a bit. I had to choose wisely. I went with french apple pie. I thought it would be comparable to a Hostess fruit pie.
Upon opening the pie I realized that it was not at all like a Hostess fruit pie or many of its other knock off pies. It came in its own little metal tin. I also didn’t realize that french apple pie is supposed to have raisins in it. Well, the good part was that I didn’t taste any raisins in the pie.
The reason why the Tastykake people keep the pie in a tin is that it’s soft as hell. I wasn’t really prepared for that. I also didn’t really like it. I’m not sure if you’re supposed to warm it up and eat it like a real pie or what, but this thing was really not for me. It’s soft and weak. Like some sort of foppish man.
