A May West is a round dessert cake with cream filling, similar to a Twinkie, except for its chocolate coating. It is found in Canada, and is particularly popular in Quebec. It is made by Vachon Inc., a division of Saputo Inc.
The cake's name was originally identical to that of the movie star that inspired it, but got changed in the 1980s to its current spelling. The original creme filling was custard, however it has since then been replaced by a shortening-based vanilla creme close in taste and texture to the filling found in Twinkies.
