An old classic goes up against a newcomer with a lot of buzz….
Fruit Pie is by far the most controversial #1 in the field. Some people have said that it shouldn’t have been in the bracket at all. Now it’s going up against the relative upstart in Nilla cakester.
Two regional powerhouses go head to head. Can the Flagship Tastykake survive the Drake Swiss Roll? The hopes and dreams of a city hang in the balance!
This is it! Perhaps the most anticipated match of the first round. Both of these cakes have been picked numerous times to win the entire tournament…and here they are facing off in the FIRST ROUND! Everyone is anxious to see how this will turn out.
A look into perhaps the most talked about cake in the entire bracket, the Peanut Butter Kandy Kake, which is taking on an icon, the Hoho. This is going to be a huge match.
The Names Little Debbie and Tastykake may be commonplace now, but that was not always the case. Both these cakes, the first for their respective companies, helped pave the way for future success. For Little Debbie, the Oatmeal Cream Pie- A snack cake so all-American it makes apple pie look like commie chow. For Tastykake, the Chocolate Jr. – First sold in 1917, and considered by most respected economists to be the primary catalyst to the roaring twenties. But all this pales in comparison to this match-up, the greatest moment in either of their storied careers. As a Dr B said, someone’s roots are getting cut off!
