Review: Tastykake Kandy Bar Kakes

Yesterday I received a pretty cool treat in the mail: Influenster’s Spring Fever Voxbox.  It’s the first one I received and came loaded with a wide variety of interesting items to sample (and one missing sample, ahem, Influenster).

One of those items was this:


It’s a cake designed to taste like a candy bar, this one being modeled after S’mores (which isn’t really a candy bar, but whatever).  I’m not really into packaged sweets like this (nor candy bars, actually), but my hubby and I shared it as a midnight snack and–maybe it was the hour–it wasn’t half bad.

If you’re the kind of person who enjoys these types of treats, this would be a home run for you, because it was quite moist and flavorful, unusual for a pre-packaged dessert, in my opinion.

Also, if you’re looking for a treat to throw into your Zombie Apocalypse go bag, I highly recommend this–that way when you’re sitting around a camp fire in the woods cradling your shotgun and you think, “Damn, if only I had some chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers to make some s’mores,” well, you’ve got the next best thing.

It’s also available in Peppermint and Peanut Butter (I wish I’d received the Peanut Butter variety, as that’s way more up my alley).  If you want to see pictures of the other two options and get more info on these treats, check out Tastykake’s website here: http://www.tastykake.com.

(Product received complimentary from Influenster.)
