Jae NYC Eats has been popping up in our Instagram newsfeed for a while and we finally had the chance to visit them at Pop Up New York today! For those of you that’ve been living under a rock, Jae NYC Eats makes artisanal twinkies aka “cakies” aka every adult’s dream of re-living a childhood fav. With so many great flavors available, it was hard to pick where to start. Luckily, Jae, the infamous founder of the cakie was there to suggest some of the current favorites/best sellers. We went with Cookies and Cream & Thai Tea followed by the Jackfruit, Ube, & Rose – all of which were spot on with flavor. Each cakie is hand injected with a corresponding creamy filling that just about exploding out of the sides than more drizzled on the top. The Cookies & Cream was also topped with cookie crumbles and the Jackfruit topped with FRUITY PEBBLES! We couldn’t really pick a “favorite” as each were truly perfect and unique in their own way – down to the texture of each cakie. So, our suggestion, if you happen to see these cakies coming to your neighborhood… run, don’t walk, because these are a MUST-TRY. Thank you Jae for making us feel like kids again, can’t wait to try the rest of the flavors!
