An IOM editorial in the Daily News:
Many people have a certain snack that reminds them of childhood, and for the city of Philadelphia, that snack is a Tastykake (we can argue over whether the Krimpet or the Kandy Kake is the true object of our collective nostalgia).
That's one reason why it's good news that the baking company, which is being bought by Georgia-based Flowers Foods, won't be closing its ovens and ceasing production.
A more tangible reason to celebrate is that we taxpayers are invested in the company. Tasty Baking is operating out of a new facility at the Navy Yard, which was financed in part by $31 million in state money.
