Mindy Kaling stans for My Grandma's of New England coffee cake, made with love (and real vanilla) in a factory at the industrial end of Hyde Park Avenue.
It might seem surprising that a comedian and writer associated with Hollywood and New York would know about something mainly sold in stores in eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island, but she did grow up in Cambridge.
She reports she orders it via on online store that specializes in regional delicacies. Of course, that comes with a price: $30, or about 2 1/2 times what you'd pay at your local Star Market.
H/t Stephanie Hainsbury in the Hyde Park Neighbors Facebook group.
That site has some great stuff but the prices are outrageous. It's comical. Oh, she's a comedian. That makes sense.
I lived in England for a few years and while you can get some things in the foreign food aisle at Shaws or Kiki's Kwik Mart, ya gotta order things like Battenberg cake online.
delivered babies at st elizabeth's for 30 years!

That is great publicity.
A Mindy Kaling story that someone at the Globe missed, today is jenny Slate, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Chris Evans has been heard from this week, haven't seen John Krasniaski in a while.
Lots of locations in NYC and a few in DC.
Locator map thing works a little oddly, but it is sold all over the country. A good number of places in the LA area, and Detroit, Cleveland, and Chicago all show up.
Thanks. Yeah, if you just zoom out on the initial map, all you see are MA and RI locations, but if you search on, oh, "Los Angeles," you get a number of stores listed.
You kids and your way-out beatnik lingo.
I think she is so amazingly gifted in so many ways. We need another Mindy based show... Or at least a show where she is the show stealing supporting character
Those coffee Cakes are seriously delicious! Moist, and yummy!!!!
