Drake's cakes are back on shelves!

Are you a fan of Drakes cakes? Did you know that Drake’s cakes are back on store shelves! You may remember the tasty treats weren’t available for 10 months after the sale of the company to McKee Foods. Now, they’re in supermarkets, supercenters, value retailers and convenience stores all over the Northeast. The four most popular varieties. Devil Dogs®, Coffee Cakes, Ring Dings® and Yodels® hit store shelves first.  Here is the great announcement, are you all as excited as I am?

 Drake’s® cakes return
Celebrating “125 Years of Delicious”

COLLEGEDALE, Tenn.,  — After much anticipation, Drake’s® cakes celebrates 125 Years of Delicious with a triumphant return to stores this month. Drake’s are available in supermarkets, supercenters, value retailers and convenience stores throughout the Northeast.  McKee Foods is launching Drake’s four most popular varieties first — Devil Dogs®, Coffee Cakes, Ring Dings® and Yodels®.
“The launch of these top four varieties is just the beginning for Drake’s,” said Chris McKee, executive vice president, Marketing & Sales. “Our first mission is to get the most popular and familiar tastes back into the pantries and lunch boxes of Drake’s loyal fans.” The primary focus for McKee Foods was to stay true to what long-time Drake’s enthusiasts remember about their favorite cakes. By using the original Drake’s recipes and familiar carton formats, consumer passion for Drake’s cakes will pick up right where it left off.
“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate 125 years of an iconic brand such as Drake’s,” McKee said. “We’re excited to bring Drake’s cakes back. We’ve been working to ensure that loyal Drake’s fans enjoy the same great experience they remember, and we can’t wait to hear what they have to say.” One of Drake’s cakes standout features was its commitment to maintain kosher certification. That kosher certification from the Orthodox Union remains today, and consumers can look for the circled-U symbol Oulogob.svg (hechsher) on cartons.
About Drake’s

Drake’s founder, Newman E. Drake, established the brand in 1888 selling sliced pound cake in Brooklyn, New York. Now a part of the McKee Foods family bakery, Drake’s cakes are a high-quality product that is baked fresh and delivered directly to neighborhood stores in the Northeast U.S. More information is available at drakescake.com, on Facebook at facebook.com/drakes and on Twitter at twitter.com/drakes.

 I love to have discussions all the time with my husband about things that we likes as kids growing up and it always seems to settle back on foods and snacks that we loved growing up and the discussions can get a little heated about our favorites and we had a chance to hash out our differences with products that we have had discussions about several times Drakes Cakes (http://www.drakescake.com/www.)
Drake's has been around for 125 years and for more than a century they've been producing delicious snack cakes including Devil Dogs (hubby's fav), Coffee Cakes (the best EVER), Ring Dings, Yodels and a host of more delicious cakes and pastries. Even though the Devil Dog is the product most closely related to Drake's their Coffee Cake is by far the single best cake they make. I don't care what my husband says he's wrong! The Devil Dog is a good snack but it can't hold a candle to the Drake's Coffee Cake. My husband and I have had hour long arguments about the pro's and con's of each and we both feel like our favorite's should be the favorite of everyone but if we were all the same the world would get boring.
A good tasting quality product is what you will get from Drake's and we've been getting them for 125 years. Things have come and go over the years and we're hoping that one of those cakes to make it's way back to the regular rotation of cakes is the Funny Bones no matter how in depth our argument gets all one of us has to say is Funny Bones and we both instantly agree that the Funny Bones are the best.
  Please bring them back, chocolate and peanut butter are just so perfect together and to not have Funny Bones around is doing a disservice to the youth of American who haven't had the opportunity to try one of the best cakes to ever be made. If you're looking for a great treat after dinner or you just want a little treat grab a Coffee Cake or a Devil Dog (the Coffee Cake is what you want though) and enjoy!

If you've been longing for some Drake’s cakes since they've been gone, they are now available in stores!
