Ruth: Nope, it wasn't a dream. You asked if Tastykake sells out of the region now. According to the Tastykake website, "The Company's core geographic region expands out from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, west to Cleveland, Ohio; north to Northern New Jersey; south to Northern Virginia; and east to the Eastern Shore of Maryland."

Also on their website, a "Statement on Peanut Butter":
"In light of the expanded recall of peanut butter and peanut butter-based products, Tasty Baking Company announced today [Jan 18, 2009] that all Tastykake products, including the iconic Peanut Butter Kandy Kake, are safe for consumption and not included in the national recall program. Tasty Baking Company does not have a supplier relationship with Peanut Corporation of America (PCA). Further, Tasty Baking Company continues to uphold its nearly century-long reputation for quality assurance on its ingredient supply chain. This corporate quality assurance program includes rigorous internal testing of ingredients, including peanut butter, for any bacteria, such as Salmonella, or contamination."
(Sign of the times, eh? Talk about "the horror"!)
