I love Publix cakes and Publix Premium ice cream. They are so good, that I constantly push it on here. The cake is the best cake I have ever eaten, so fresh, soft, and buttery/ sugary, and the Publix Premium ice cream is rich and creamy, and even better tasting than National ice cream brands!

Publix supermarkets are not in the North East region of the country so I can't give an opinion on the products. I WILL say, however, that when my MIL lived in Florida, we'd stop in both Publix and the Lion King. Both stores were spotless and the workers were incredibly efficient and friendly.

You don't find that in New York supermarkets. It's more like "NEXT! Move along.... I SAID DO YOU HAVE ANY COUPONS???"

Do you own stock in Publix? Donna. I get sick of you bringing it up all the time.
 
Now here are some cakes, be warned, these cakes are not for children, or squeamish, or sensitive, or easily offended people.  Did I cover everything there?

Here is one of the cakes Publix makes...



And here is a link to their cake page with thumbnail images of the rest...

They really do make some incredible stuff.

And Madz is right, they are the among the cleanest & most polite grocery stores you'll ever visit.

Politeness to customers is one of their biggest concerns. I doubt that their employees get more than two or three strikes in the way of complaints about rudeness or attitudes.

I doubt that I'd last a week there....

I'll believe you (whoever) if you say they're good, but elaborate or beautiful doesn't necessarily equal good, in my experience.  It may equal art, but that doesn't mean it's gonna be good.

I once got an "Italian Cream Cake" from Walmart that was one of the best cakes I've ever had.  Nothing special to look at, either.

They (Publix) make em in the store everyday, so they're always fresh.

Good quality, too.

They also make killer NY style cheesecake.

And don't even get me started on their deli & their subs!!!!

I've never had a Publix anything, that I'm aware of... they just don't come to these parts. As far as a store-made cake goes around here, about the best I've had recently came from Costco.

Only problem is that it only comes in one size, Pool Table. You need to be having a party for 80 or more people (an exaggeration, but not by a lot) to bother buying one.

Same here.  But it doesn't sound very good.  "Publix" makes it sound like it's government-issued cake, which would probably be something like this:

Expanding on what AKA Ron said, it's the silly incessant "role-play" quality of it.

I don't mind things like that now and again -rests forehead on palm- and sometimes it helps convey a point better than words alone, but the way he does it is so excessively cutesy and leading, like he wants someone to play into the game.

They will know the sweet, creamy, rich taste of Publix cakes and Publix Premium ice cream! Once people begin craving those delicious Publix cakes and Publix Premium ice cream and buying those delicious desserts, Publix Finances will skyrocket, and then Publix will be able to buy out even well known National dessert companies! Publix will become a world wide known and highly loved dessert supplier! Laughs like a Maniac*

It's not bullsh*t, Ron. Publix will become a top dessert supplier! The more people taste those delicious Publix desserts, the more people will fall in love with Publix. . In fact, on a different website, someone even pointed that the Publix Premium ice cream tasted better than the National Brand of ice cream, and was about a dollar cheaper..... The love of Publix desserts is spreading.......

I'll stick with Graeter's, the Cincinnati home-grown sensation that's sweeping the nation.

Not only are their cakes delicious, but the ice cream? Around Easter time, when they're making bunnies and such, they toss in the chunks of any bunnies that get broken during production. I found a whole milk chocolate ear in my Toffee Chip once. Mind you, that's the parlor scoops where you find the BIG chunks. The chunks you find in pints are usually smaller.

Cherry Garcia.

I was never a huge fan of Ben and Jerry's.  Too much nonsense going on in their ice cream.  Cookie bits and caramel and pie crust and all that stuff.  I like ice cream mostly plain.  B+J used to have a good Vermont Blueberry, though.




Posted By: Papa Lazarou
Date Posted: 05 Jun 2015 at 8:09pm
Luckily, they say what's in them on the label. I don't like a lot of bits all the time. Cherry Garcia Is okay. Cherry ice cream, huge chunks of cherry, and those little chocolate bricks. If you don't want the chocolate, then I'd say buy Haagan Daz's Cherry Amaretto gelato instead. Slightly better ice cream flavor and you still get the big cherries.

My standard go-to for B&J is something like the strawberry cheesecake. Very simple flavours, and the additions make sense (swirls and bits of loose graham cracker crumbs and strawberries)

Still, there's a handful of 'em I imagine are only made for stoners.

Publix has a flavor called Birthday Cake. Tried it once. Pretty good. Kinda sweet, sorta pink & white & has candy pieces & some kind of cakey stuff I think.

They also sell that Graeter's brand, too.

Well, no matter what, Publix is just another fly-by-the-Tampa-night food chain. Nothing great, middle of the road. 'tang needs to do its research before bragging, unless it likes settling for mediocre.

Far down on the list from Wegman's, who supplies the TOP RATED cakes and premium ice cream, along with everything else (verified through CONSUMER REPORTS).  I've shopped both chains, absolutely love Wegmans.

Actually Pa, I think you might be the one who might do a bit of research on this particular topic...

PUBLIX:

Founded in 1930  in Winter Haven, Fla,

It is currently ranked No. 67 on Fortune magazine's list of 100 Best Companies to Work For 2015.

It is ranked No. 8 on Forbes' 2014 list of America's Largest Private Companies and is the largest in Florida. 

The company's 2014 sales totaled $30.6 billion, with profits of $1.74 billion.

Ranks #104 on Fortune magazine's Fortune 500 list of U.S. companies for 2014. 

Supermarket News ranked Publix No. 5 in the 2014 "Top 75 North American Food Retailers" based on fiscal year sales. 

Based on 2014 revenue, Publix is the thirteenth-largest US retailer and thirty-fifth in the world. 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Publix" rel="nofollow - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Publix

WEGMAN'S:

Founded in 1916 in Rochester, NY.

Wegmans has appeared on Fortune's annual "100 Best Companies to Work For" list since the list first appeared in 1998, and has ranked among the top 10 for eight consecutive years. 

On Forbes's 2005 list, Wegmans ranked 54th.

In 2009 Stores Magazine showed it to be the 74th largest retailer in the United States with estimated revenues of $4.67 billion As of 2006, it was the 66th largest privately held company, as determined by Forbes. 

In 2009, Wegmans ranked number 29 on the Supermarket News list of the Top 75 North American Food Retailers based on sales volume, up from number 32 on the 2007 list, and 7th among privately held U.S. supermarkets. [Citation needed]

Apparently, you only checked Consumer Reports. There are other publications that rank other things. 

Either way, your comments about Publix being a fly-by-Tampa-night, middle of the road chain were way off base.

Publix is a much larger & more profitable chain than Wagman's

Bubba.

...and you checked where else? So what is the value of your statement?
 
Publix is an employee-owned organization that cannot turn on dime - too large. Volume-based profitability.
 
Wegmans is FAMILY-OWNED, picks its locations maybe a little differently. Maybe their strategy is different you think? They're opening a new store in Alexandria, Virginia, soon. Upscale, healthy quality at a great price.

See what you've caused, Donna. They're going to be dueling with pistols at twenty paces before long.

Just remember that you did this. This is your fault. YOU KILLED THEM, YOU HEARTLESS BITCH!

I checked Wikipedia where all the entries were sourced. I have no reason to doubt the info there.

They also referenced the Consumer Reports ranking, so is that suspect too?

You made the statement that Publix is just another fly-by-night, middle of the road operation. I merely showed you that the facts say otherwise. 

A grocery store chain does not become one of the largest retailers in the world by being shoddy, dirty or giving rude or half assed service. Publix supermarkets are consistently one of the cleanest & friendliest grocery stores you'll find anywhere. Their customer service is second to none. 

They also have a rather unique policy. If any item that's advertised on sale or that still has a sale price shelf marker in front of it after it has gone off sale, rings up on the cash register at the regular price, you get that item for free. No matter what it is. 

And as for the veracity & trustworthiness of Wikipedia, or "Wikanfabricate" as you called it, take a few minutes & watch this 60 Minutes report on them....

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/wikipedia-jimmy-wales-morley-safer-60-minutes/" rel="nofollow - http://www.cbsnews.com/news/wikipedia-jimmy-wales-morley-safer-60-minutes/

Publix & Wegman's appear to be about on an equal par, with Publix being the larger & more profitable of the two.

I prefer Consumer Reports

I don't know why people say that sort of thing about Wikipedia.  Wikipedia's great.  If you want to research further, it provides many Wiki and external links.  And it also provides plenty of info and buzzwords to allow you to research on your own.  It's probably the website I look at most.

But if you have a better method, please let us know.

It's gotten better over the years.

Up until a few years ago it still deserved the criticism it often got for not being overly reliable.

But like the 60 Minutes report said, that has changed & now, though not perfect, it's still a good info source for most subjects.

Nice how you get a little pissed and like to call out first names. Not sure what you are trying to achieve there...
 
Why do I care what 60 minutes has to say? I do not care. They do not always get things right, either.
 
So Publix is a big chain. in the top 75 retailers in North America.
Wow. Let me grab balloons and confetti.
Yea, they're a good company - you could have saved a lot by just posting this, where they pat themselves on the back for a job well done:
http://corporate.publix.com/about-publix/company-overview/awards-achievements" rel="nofollow - http://corporate.publix.com/about-publix/company-overview/awards-achievements
 
*I* like Wegmans and *I* like the way they present themselves and operate. Yes, I prefer them to Publix.

Just poking & jabbing at you a little.

And I couldn't let your inaccurate & derogatory comments about one of my favorite stores go unchallenged.

You know how it is..... 

Anyway, *I* like Publix and *I* like the way they present themselves and operate.

Cool

UNLIKE a lot of folks here I used to work at Publix.
I was 16 or 17 and it was one of my first jobs.

Founder George Jenkins was still alive, and I'm sure the whole enterprise would have scored higher than it does now. Of course, back then, it was probably even more of a regional grocery chain.

This was a time when they used to accept Coke bottles for return deposit, used paper only (not plastic), and were closed on Sundays. And they were only open until 9PM, not 11PM like they are now.

My paychecks used to have a little line at the top that read "Where working is a pleasure."   

For those unfamiliar with Publix, the supermarket's slogan is "Where shopping is a pleasure".

As for Publix commercials, I don't see too many, and the ones I do see are not at all obnoxious or objectinable. In fact, the only ones I can even remember are the ones they play around Christmas time featuring Pat Matheney's music, like "Last Train Home", etc.. Those are actually quite well done, in my opinion.

And as for Publix' cakes: Well, I wouldn't really know since I don't buy them that often. Their ice cream is mostly so-so. Not bad for the price (for sure), but there are better brands. Some of the rolls from the Publix bakery definitely fall in the "worth going to get" category.

Lol. I was wondering if anyone would question why I work for Walgreens, yet am pushing Publix cakes and Publix ice cream, and someone did, as in, why am I not pushing Walgreens food.The truth is, I love Publix cake and their ice cream. The only Walgreens food I really like is the Nice! Double Dipped Peanuts. Peanuts dipped into chocolates are divine!

Re: Anduril - Funny, because I like everything about Publix EXCEPT their commercials!!!

Some of the worst, sappiest, overly sentimental ooey-gooey tripe I've ever seen anywhere!!!!

They literally make my skin crawl!!!!

Especially the holiday themed ads.

Yuck!!!!

Couldn't have been Donna.

No screaming, scratching, slapping or hair pulling out of either of them.

Of course, neither of them had any hair to pull... but still, a bit on the "manly" side for Donna.
