Where can I get the Tastykake PIES?

I know multiple places to get my cheesesteak fix and most of them have Tastykakes so my jelly krimpet addiction gets filled too. What I am after in LA is the ever elusive Tastykake mini PIE. Short of ordering a box of them direct, where can I find them locally?

  1. Ordering direct is a tad expensive, but in my experience the product seems to super fresh.

    1. Have you talked to these cheesesteak joints and asked them if they'll special order you some pie from their distributor? I suspect they will do it if it's not too much of a PITA.

          Oh boy, that's some deal. $14 for 3 pies! Might as well order a case from TastyKake.

        2. I saw the apple pies today at Smartstore in Manhattan Beach. Ninety-nine cents each.

            Thanks, I didn't even know this store existed. I saw about 10 varieties of TastyKakes and tried the Butterscotch Krimpet and the apple pie. The pie had a soft crust and crispy apples. Other than that, I didn't detect anything special about it...maybe it's a nostalgia thing?

            Also have sandwiches made on Amoroso rolls with Boars Head meats. Didn't partake but will soon.

              The sandwiches and salads at The Smartstore are all made to order and are indeed very good. (and you get to order them on a cool electronic kiosk.)

              i was just at the smartstore in manhattan beach ca. and saw a tastykake apple pie, but i bought 3 packages of the peanut butter candy kakes, yum. 99 cents a package.

              1. Philly's Best has them, though my only experience with that, that I've had is at the Pasadena location, which is closed now, I believe. There are some other locations around the area
