        Is it like Elmer's Heavenly Hash? I've never seen that.

        1. re: uptownlibrarian

          just got it today for tomorrow's game. smells divine, but haven't taken a dive into it yet. I assumed it was EHH baked inside. looks wicked good and sounded Saintly!

      2. My friends in New Orleans tell me that they looked for Heavenly Hash king cake at several Rouses and no one there has head of it. This must be mail order only item.
