A Philadelphia city councilman offered a Milwaukee alderman a baseball wager. The stakes were local food, so the Philly guy put up hoagies and Tastykakes.* The councilman's press release described the latter as "baked snacks similar to Hostess products".
They are, and how pathetic is it that the Philly food is derivative - Philadelphia as a lesser Twinkie. And oh, they are MUCH lesser. Philadelphia-style soft pretzels would've been better, as would cheesesteaks. Because cheesesteaks are, well, yum.
Although Tastykakes are a terrible example of Philadelphia food, Philadelphia food in general is quite good - the restaurant scene here is great.
*I really, really, really hate that spelling, because those proximate k's look like a certain slur.
