I received a TastyKake bar courtesy of Influenster.com. I received it free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion of the product. To see everything I received in my box, please click here.
I received the Reese’s flavor which couldn’t have been more perfect for me, as I freakin’ love Reese’s.
First impressions: Really high in fat and carbs. I’ve been losing weight (78lbs so far! E-High Five!) so this was a major turnoff. Out of my allotted daily food intake, this would be 30% of everything I can eat in a day. WAY too much. So I thought, “This better be f-ing delicious!”
After dinner, I ripped this baby open. Second impression: It does not look that appetizing. This photo is from the freshly opened package. I haven’t even touched it yet. Doesn’t it look a little dry and old?
I decided to dive right in.
I liked how the frosting on the outside was crunchy. That was pleasant. However, the chocolate cake on the inside was extremely dry. There is a layer of peanut butter inside (aka why it’s called Reese’s flavor!) but it was a measly, barely noticeable layer. I could barely taste the peanut butter.
Look–You can hardly even see it! And, doesn’t it look super dry? Well your eyes do not deceive you, dear reader. It IS Super dry.
Verdict: I will not be purchasing TastyKakes. It is not nearly delicious enough to warrant taking up 30% of what I can eat in a day! I’d rather have a real piece of cake or a real Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. You may like this product if you’re not trying to lose weight and you’re craving a fast sugar fix, but honestly, there are way better things on the marker. Sorry, TastyKake! You’re not for me!
