National Pastelito Day at Vicky Bakery

Just in time for National Pastry Day on December 9, Vicky Bakery, South Florida’s largest Cuban Bakery, is spotlighting a pastry with a little more Latin flare, the iconic Cuban pastelito. To celebrate, the company is launching its new campaign, “What’s Your Flavor?” which aims to engage Miamians, Cubans, and Cuban Americans to share the pastelito flavor they grew up eating with their families on Sunday morning pastelito runs.

Vicky Bakery sells thousands of pastelitos each year, mainly through its pastelito trays which complete any Miami family gathering. The Bakery serves a variety of flavors including, guava, guava and cheese, coconut, and meat, and for those who want to switch it up we have non traditional flavors like mango, mango and cheese, bacon and cheese, and a pizza pastelito! 

On Sunday December 9th , Vicky Bakery invites locals to stop by their nearest location for a free guava pastelito (the best selling flavor!) and share their sweet treat on social with #WhatsYourFlavor.
