In 1914 Pittsburgh baker Philip J. Baur and Boston egg salesman Herbert T. Morris decided that there was a need for prewrapped, fresh cakes that were conveniently available at local grocers. The two men coined the name Tastykake for their new treats and were determined to use only the finest ingredients, delivered fresh daily to their bakery.

The founders standards of freshness are still maintained. Tastykakes baked tonight are on the shelves tomorrow. That philosophy has contributed to substantial growth for the Tasty Baking Company. On its first day, the firms sales receipts totaled $28.32; today the company boasts yearly sales of more that $200 million.

Among the top-selling Tastykake treats are the Butterscotch Krimpets, first created in 1927. Today, approximately 6 million Butterscotch Krimpets are baked each and every week.
