My Dad is flying in from Mass. Saturday...bringing Drake's cakes and Salada tea


From Seinfeld:
ELAINE: Do any of these look close?
KRAMER: No, but I know I've seen cake just like that. Oh--Entenmann's. Yeah.
ELAINE: Entenmann's? From the supermarket?
KRAMER: Well, no. They're not really in the supermarket. Yeah, they got their own case at the end of the aisle.

And the Drake's Coffee Cake bit:

Yes it is. I can't find a coffee cake like that in Texas unfortunately.

It's not "our" fault you've been deprived. If they had Tastykakes in the Alamo things might have turned out differently.
