Last time I was over by the old Helms Bakery site on Venice Boulevard, there was a pop-up bakery selling baked goods
from their old recipes out of the back of an old Helms truck! It was about 3 months ago. I live fairly close, and
will try to get over there within a month or so. You might try searching for Helms Bakery on Venice Blvd in Culver City,
and see if they actually have a place where they are baking the old favorites.
According to this: http://helmsbakerydistrict.com/restaurants/helms-bakery/
They are planning to re-open Helms Bakery. However, the building is still under construction.
The truck you saw was a special occasion, it seems.
