Is a Heavenly Hash king cake actually a king cake stuffed with Heavenly Hash candy?
Has anyone tried it?
Sounds like a strong case for sugar overload syndrome.

Didn't see them at Clearview Rouse's this morning, but alls I wanted was traditional, one for the office and a big one for our security guards.

Yesterday after work, at 4:45 or so, I stopped at Manny Randazzo's for king cakes before they closed at 5, but they were out of those sizes of traditional. They said that when they opened in the morning at 6:30 they would have plenty of everything, but they did not write down my order.

At 6:30 when I arrived the doors were still locked and 35 people were in line ahead of me. A bit after 6:45 they finally opened, and one of the first people out said the wet weather was keeping the icing from setting. Some time after 7 when I got to the front of the line, they were again out of what I wanted. I was steamed. They will never have the privilege of my custom again. I decline to do business with people who treat customers so shabbily.

I was tempted to go to Haydel's, but that was too far. I was tempted to go to the Tastee Donuts on Clearview for McKenzie's recipe king cakes, but I didn't know if they would have the quantity and selection necessary to get something as simple as a large and a small plain old traditional king cake. As it was, Clearview Rouse's was far enough, but they had a big selection, good quality, and prices about 25% less than Randazzo's. Instead of getting to work at 6:40 or so, it was more like 7:45.

Hope everybody else's Kings Day was mo' better than the way mines stawted.

I gave up on Randazzo's several years ago. The last thirty or so times that I stopped there, they did not have any regular cakes. Time of day varied, but always the same.

Just passed through Rouse's. They were giving away all the free samples of their king cakes that you would care to try. Big pieces too. They are not fooling around. They told me that they have never heard of heavenly hash king cakes. They may be by the door giving away samples because of their lack of knowledge though.

At Schwegmann and Sav-A-Center Memorial Rouses now, Corner Airline Hwy and Labarre Rd.

No sign of Heavenly Hash king cake.

They do have German chocolate, coco pecan, coconut, and a dozen more conventional fillings.
