COLLEGEDALE, TENN. — Drake’s Coffee Cakes, a sweet good that was discontinued last fall, has returned to store shelves.
McKee Foods Corp., which has owned the Drake’s brand since 2013, said the coffee cakes will be available in supermarkets, supercenters, value retailers and convenience stores throughout the eastern United States.
Coffee Cakes are made with a cinnamon streusel topping and were first introduced in 1930. McKee acquired the Drake’s brand from Hostess Brands, Inc. after that company declared bankruptcy in 2012.
“Using the classic Drake’s recipe, McKee Foods is now baking Coffee Cakes,” said Chip Stenberg, associate brand manager for Drake’s. “Coffee Cakes are now individually wrapped, which is a frequent request from moms.”
