COLLEGEDALE, Tenn. — McKee Foods' Drake's brand has put a new spin on its Drake’s Yodels line of dessert treats. New Drake's Alpine Yodels are moist, yellow cake, rolled around classic Drake's creme and dipped in white icing.

"We're excited about this new companion to classic Drake's Yodels, which were introduced in 1962," said Chip Stenberg, Drake's associate brand manager. "We conducted extensive research and found that sometimes Drake's consumers want yellow cake. Who knew?"

Classic Drake’s Yodels are made with devil’s food cake and dipped in chocolate-flavored frosting.

Drake's Alpine Yodels will be available in supermarkets, supercenters, value retailers and convenience stores throughout the eastern United States.

As with all Drake's products, Alpine Yodels are certified kosher by the Orthodox Union. Collegedale, Tenn.-based McKee Foods' Drake's brand was founded in New York City in 1896.
