Philadelphians have had a soft spot for their favorite foods since Ben Franklin first conceived Poor Richard's Alma-snacks, which eventually became the TastyKakes currently crumbling into your keyboard. Giving modern Philly denizens their favorite foods from the days of yore: YesterYums
Originating from one man's reaction against the "health-ification" of modern cereals and snack foods, YesterYums is gearing up to offer shelf upon shelf of the imminently preservative-ed vintage throwback snacks and drinks that fattened your childhood, from Amazin' Fruit to Clearly Canadian, all tirelessly sourced from eBay, defunct supermarkets, old warehouses, recovering hoarders, and, bizarrely, "the City of Detroit" (Detroit Pop Rock City?). Their planned storefront'll be stocked with both preserved and frozen tasties (most in their original packaging), including Giggle Cookies, original Cool Ranch and Nacho Cheese Doritos ("none of that 'Cheesier' crap!"), five flavors of O'Boisies, and Warrant-branded Hostess Cherry Pies, while the beverage section gets you your fix of Crystal Pepsi, Orbitz, Frutopia, Diet Rite, and Surge... *deep breath* ...SURRRRRRGGGGGE!. But the original cereal inspiration's the heart of the shop: antique Lucky Charms (including early 4- and 5-marshmallow varieties), Oatmeal Cookie Crisp, Rice Krispies with four elves (Snap, Crackle, Keith, and Pop), and Teddy Grahams Cereal share shelves with limited-edition icons C-3POs, Urkel-Os, and OJ's, which either tasted like oranges, or totally didn't kill their ex-wife
Separating YesterYums from its forgotten food competitors are its request system: they can meet most special orders in 4 weeks, within reason, because no one could create Tastier-Kakes.
