Saltines, Not Sardines

Today's paper ran this correction

A chart on Sunday comparing biographical and personal points about Governor-elect Eliot Spitzer and Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, two like-minded New York leaders with a warm relationship who could find themselves at odds once Mr. Spitzer is sworn in, misidentified one of Mr. Bloomberg’s favorite foods. It is saltines, not sardines. (Go to Article)
You have to click on the sidebar to get the chart, which lists Drake's coffee cake as Governor-elect Spitzer's favorite food. I will admit to being just a little concerned.

As a native, albeit former New Yorker, this is a hoot. Now that we're here in Big Sky Country, Drakes cakes are a distant memory... even Channukah candles were almost impossible to get.

Love the mountain air tho.

I was wondering if they planted the sardines just so they could do the correction.

Are Drake's coffee cakes regional? I thought they were everywhere, like coca-cola and bagels.
