I went to Walmart 9/7/18 8:15pm purchased a Pepperidge Farm vanilla Confetti cake. My husband said taste good. I was concerned when I opened the box the cake was not wrapped with anything, just in the box. Usually things are individually wrapped inside a box.

All ways able to purchase party cocktail rye in Illinois. Seems like their are no people in Florida that want the product. They say it is seasonal. Thought the holidays would be the time to ship it to Florida. Very dissatisfied
