Now, if you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, your prayers have been answered.
Jae NYC Eats, home of some seriously unique home-made artisanal Twinkies (what a time to be alive) can now be delivered straight to your door.
Unlike the original Twinkies, which were made to outlive us all, these "cakies" are freshly made by Queens based pastry chef Janice de Castro.
As reported by Thrillist, her business began as a joke, when after Hostess went bankrupt, her daughter gave her a Twinkies baking mold– however, when they created their first flavor, Chocolate Matcha, they decided to keep going.
Jae NYC Eats' fancy flavors include maple bacon rum, jackfruit with Fruity Pebbles, bananas Foster with salted caramel rum, rose lemon with macadamia nuts, ube, pandan with coconut, and more.
Yeah, these aren't exactly the plastic wrapped snacks your mom threw into your lunch bag.
If you're Filipino (like me!), you probably zoned in on ube and pandan with coconut immediately, and you're probably not surprised to hear that de Castro is of Filipina herself. Just saying, if ingredients from Pinoy desserts were used more often, the world would be a better place.
For now, Jae NYC Eats doesn't have a storefront of its own, so besides delivery throughout the boroughs, they sell wholesale to restaurants, cater private events, and host food market pop-ups.
