Nerd Food: Transformers Tastykake Krimpets Are Fluffy, Butterscotchy Delights

I’m actually a fan of Tastykake Krimpets, but admittedly, I don’t buy them all the time. I’m also a fan of Transformers — and yes, I am 100% aware that the Michael Bay films are actually garbage, but I am a proud fan of garbage films. So with the new movie coming out this week, merchandise tie-ins have hit the shelves — such as these Transformers Tastykake Krimpets. There’s a number of different Decepticons and Autobots featured on the various packaging, but sadly only Megatron is on the Krimpets.

I won’t bore you with the details of how they tasted; just know that Transformers Tastykake Krimpets were little fluffy, butterscotchy delights. If you check out the Tastykake/Transformers website, you can actually enter to win some neat prizes, as the company’s official website tweeted:

I’m slightly let down my Krimpet didn’t transform and try to roll out before I ate it, but oh well. You can go get your own Tastykakes and then read Kaitlyn’s Transformers: The Last Knight review.

This summer, Autobots, Decepticons, and Tastykake are uniting in a thrilling new partnership with Paramount Picture’s Transformers: The Last Knight, directed by Michael Bay, in theaters June 21. Fans and followers of the robot series can experience the excitement of the new film by picking up any of the six limited edition Tastykake packages, and also entering a sweepstakes for a chance to win prizes online.

To celebrate the movie, Tastykake has revamped the packaging of limited editions of the iconic snack brand’s line of Minis, classic Butterscotch Krimpets, and timeless Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes – all honoring individual characters and their unique sense of style. Fans can collect all of the limited edition packaging Minis, Butterscotch Krimpets, and Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes everywhere Tastykake is sold. Fans can also find the new Tastykake packaging on Transformers: The Last Knight displays in major retailers.

“Bringing together the iconic deliciousness of Tastykake and the entertaining excitement of the Transformers movie franchise is an exciting prospect for both brands,” said Brent Bradshaw, Flowers Foods’ vice president of cake marketing. “Aligning with the theatrical release of Transformers: The Last Knight is a perfect match to Tastykake’s fun positioning and is sure to be a fan favorite.”
