My earliest memories of Dewey's take me to my mother's side,face planted on the glass display eagerly pointing a sweet "old lady" to the cream horn I wanted. According to Mom, I got hooked on Dewey's cream horns in utero. Her legend has it that she consumed two a day while pregnant with me and my craving for them continued from those early childhood trips to Thruway in the '70s until a couple months ago 2007.
The Home page at dewey's.com reads from the first line:
"Faithful to a ritual that began in 1930, at a time most people are heading off to bed; our bakers are firing up the ovens and combining the all natural ingredients that will become the products our customers have enjoyed for generations."
In the last two years Dewey's has seen some changes. Fresh new look. New faces. Even some sharp new packaging. I laud Dewey Jr. for taking the company in a new direction. However, when I bit into the new cream horn a couple months ago, my feelings were hurt. Everything about it is different. The pastry is dense and chewy. The cream is overly sweet and pasty. And it is smaller. The price went up as did all the prices. Over $14 for 1lb of Moravian cookies. I also noticed the sugar cake is different too. And smaller. And all that money spent creating a slick "grown up" looking bakery. Every time I've gone in since the re-opening the place is a mess. The young girls working the counter don't give a poo. Please bring bake the old recipes we "enjoyed for generations."
