OK, for those of you who are deprived, Tastykake is a bakery company like Hostess or Little Debbie or Drake's but only a million times better. Except for Drake's, they are quite good as well.
Tastykake has a product that they call Krimpets. They are basically the same idea as Twikies only they come in a variety of flavors. Jelly Krimpets have jelly inside. I think it's strawberry, I don't remember for sure. They have my absolute favorite Butterscotch Krimpets with butterscotch frosting and no filling.
Every so often they make some limited edition Krimpet. Like once I saw a Krimpet with grape jelly inside and a peanut butter frosting and they called them PB&J Krimpets. They were good but a bit too much sugar made them unbearable for more than two Krimpets.
They do Holiday based ones as well.
Well this morning I'm getting coffee and I glanced over at the vending machine and noticed a package that looked odd. Closer inspection shows it's Pancake Krimpets. I was like WTF?
Let me tell you, these things are the work of the devil! I thought they would be disgusting but worth a try. No, they are not. They are the standard sponge cake Krimpets with maple syrup flavored frosting and this "butter cream" filling which might as well be straight butter. Aside from the crumbly cake texture, they taste like pancakes covered in maple syrup, powdered sugar and butter. I'm thinkin' they might be even better nuked in the microwave to make them warm.
