You may recall reading about the friendly World Series wager between the archbishops of New York and Philadelphia — some Tastykakes to New York if Philadelphia lost the series; some New York bagels to Philly if the Yankees lost. (Who knew that Tastykakes are known as the “taste of Philadelphia”? Not me — I prefer Philly cheesesteaks, but I digress.)

Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan of New York and Cardinal Justin Rigali of Philadelphia had already made good on their bet. But the two good friends (Archbishop Dolan is a St. Louis native; Cardinal Rigali used to be archbishop there) shared some tasty Tastykakes just the same during the U.S. bishops’ general meeting in Baltimore this week.

UPDATE: There are additional photos of the two bishops on the Facebook page of the USCCB.

SECOND UPDATE: On his blog, Archbishop Dolan has his own set of photos on his “sweet victory.”

  1. Tastykakes are far and away the best tasting cup cakes in the world. I had them every day for lunch while growing up.

  2. Honestly, I would’ve prefered the NY Bagel either way: much healthier for you AND they taste good with cheese!

    But that’s just from a health freak’s point of view.
    :-)

  3. I’d take a Tastykake (and a Phillies victory) any day.

  4. I love tastycakes as well now as I did 50 years ago when I was growing up.
    Sad to say I moved to the South and they are not sold in the land of “Little Debbie Cakes”,but I have a friend in the North that still sends me Butterscotch Tasty Cakes once in a while.

    Same Great flavor 50 years later !!!!!!
