PHOTOS — End of ‘Hurricakes’: Publix No Longer Selling Hurricane-Themed Cakes to Be More Sensitive

Florida shoppers will no longer be able to buy popular hurricane-themed cakes from Publix, as the company wants to avoid downplaying natural disasters.

An official with the supermarket chain told WTSP Monday about the decision to no longer make the sweet desserts:

Our associates make every effort to support our customers during weather events. Oftentimes, this includes finding ways to delight them with their favorite Publix items as they prepare for uncertainty. For these requests in particular, it is our company policy to not produce bakery cakes that would make light of a natural disaster.

Per the WTSP article, the peak of hurricane season is right around the corner, and officials have already tracked several tropical storms.
