Calandro’s – With over 50 flavors to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect King Cake at Calandro’s! The new flavor for 2019 is an exciting one. In 2018, Calandro’s started making their own Italian cookies, so of course, they had to infuse a King Cake with Italian Cookie goodness. So the brand new “Little Italy” Gourmet flavor now has Italian cookie crumbles inside and crumbled on top along with a Fig & Bavarian Creme fill combo that is to die for!
Ambrosia – There are many options when it comes to The Ambrosia King Cake! The Traditional King Cake (shown here for an “In-Store Pickup”) has cinnamon and sugar inside of our family secret King Cake dough.
