Why are Tastykakes not available in Toronto?

I love Tastykakes. I have had them all my life,since I have relatives in Southern New Jersey. I have never been able to find Tastykakes-anywhere in Canada, not Toronto,not Montreal, not London, nor Kingston,nor Ottawa. I wish they were available here in Toronto. Even though I am a diabetic,I still love the sugar free varieties,or low cal. Vachon cakes simply do not compare. I had thought that they might have distribution in Canada, either in mid west,or Ontario / Quebec. There had at one time been info that Tastykakes might be distributed in Calgary,or Manitoba. Vachon cakes are terrible. The pies are (Tastykake) are fresh,filled with fresh fruit. The Peanut Butter Tandykakes, Butterscotch Crimpets, chocolate cupcakes a great treat. Even the sugar free Tastykakes are very good. By comparison,Joe Louis,Loon Moons,etc from Vachon are rubbish. No diner here compares with Ponzios in Cherry Hill New Jersey as far as I'm concerned. Four Seasons Studio Cafe is overpriced, food now is designer type. Why can't I find a good deli sandwich here? Shopsys is terrible,I gather they are on they're way out. Yitzes is ok, though I'm concerned with the listeria scare here. I wish we had the real Montreal bagels. Good places to eat dinner in Toronto: Marche, United Bakers, Yitzes, (on a good night,they are still very good) Toni Baloni is ok. For buffet: Mandarin is great. Mama's Pizza still is a great place for pizza. I'm very partial to Chez Piggy,Pan Chancho, wonder what became of Sebastians in London? Domus Cafe in Ottawa has always been very special to me. I also like Vittoria's Tratoria in Ottawa, (Byward Market) 20 King Street: Kitchener. And the Bistro Cafe In Guelph. Marc Bernstein
