The History of Snack Cakes

The History of Snack Cakes

Snack cakes are a part of life for most people in North America. Some of the biggest changes in the world of snack cakes happened at the turn-of-the-century just following the end of the first world war. Just a few years after the end of the first world war, major companies were opened that specialized in producing some of the snack cakes that most people enjoy today. Although more than a century has passed since some of these snack cakes found their way to market, they are still favored by people around the world.

Just a few years ago, a major producer of snack cakes announced that they were going to bring an end to one of their popular brands of snack cakes. There was a mini panic among the sugar crazed public. People started to sell boxes of this particular snack cake online for many times its original value.

Thankfully, the snack cake company began producing their famed dessert once again, to the delight of snack lovers around the globe. Some of these snack cakes are so popular that they have become international symbols. The brands are beloved not only because of their flavor but because of what these snacks have meant in the lives of the people who enjoy eating them. Who would’ve thought that a desert produced in bulk using an industrial mixer and other industrial kitchen supplies could have such of a personal impact on the lives of people across the country?

One of the reasons why snack cakes are so loved is because they are relatively inexpensive. They are a comfort food. For just a couple of dollars, you can buy a packaged bundle of joy that will curb your craving for sugar, go well with a hot cup of coffee, and bring back memories of some of the best events in your life growing up.

Snack cake companies are always inventing new products. They are looking for ways to grab new customers. However, regardless of what new delicacies they invent, it is going to be the old goodies invented almost a century ago that will hold onto the hearts of many.
