Tastykake – WTF?

Dear Tastybakers,

What have you done with our beloved Tasty-Klair Pie?????

I used to look forward to consuming the delicious 21 grams of fat, washed down with an ice cold glass of whole milk.

Chester’s Pastry Pantry is along Route 9 in Somers Point, NJ.  As it is my job to fetch the pastries each Saturday and Sunday morning, I try to change it up.

While we alternate in Ocean City between Ward’s Pastry, Dot’s Pastry and Brothers 14th Street Bakery (each of which will get reviewed in time for the summer season), on a few occasions I trek early in the morning across the bay to Somers Point to Chester’s.

Chester’s is known for great donuts, danish and bread/rolls.  But they’re famous for their honey buns.

They are available with raisins or with nuts and raisins.

These little puppies are a slice of heaven.  Fat filled, gooey but not messy, and explosively sweet.  In short:  they are delicious.  Seek out Chester’s and try one.  You will thank me.
