Entenmanns Rockville Bakery

Every store has its discounters. Estee Lauder has the Roanoke Warehouse where respectable matriarchs scrabble in huge metal bins for last years lipsticks. Saks Fifth Avenue has the Woodbury Commons outlet hidden in a small New York City suburb. Filene's has Filenes’s Basement. And apparently, answering a need we never knew we had, Entenmann's has the Entenmanns Bakery in at 1327 Rockville Pike, MD.

For shear horrifying carbs, this ‘bakery’, a repository for slightly imperfect Entenmanns'S baked goods is well worth the pilgrimage. The chocolate doughnut with smeared fudge. The Devils Crumb cake without enough crumbs. The Cream Filled Chocolate Cake with a spot of icing missing. They all end up here in huge cardboard boxes stacked, depending on the time of week, sometimes 15 high.

The products are a little hit and miss- Here’s a giant pile of low carb cookies, here’s four overflowing shelves of malformed chocolate doughnut holes covered in sprinkles. Here’s an entire empty wall awaiting tomorrows bread and pizza crust shipment with a single loaf of 5 grain bread crying all alone.

The prices are accordingly low- a loaf of bread, chocolate cake, doughnut holes, and package of pitas came to about $4. This place truly has the market cornered in preservative-laced, low quality squish. Joy! I highly suggest it to anyone with a random cake craving.
