One of the items in the Spring VoxBox was the Kandy Bar Kake from Tastykake (www.tastykake.com). Here’s what the Influenster site has to say about this product:

Kandy Bar Kakes are the best of both worlds. Light and fluffy chocolate-enrobed cakes come in a unique kandy bar shape with a delicious créme filling made with your favorite candy flavors. Available in S’mores, Peppermint, and Peanut Butter flavor. Available at grocery and convenience stores across America.

Single Serve – $1.69, Family Pack – $4.49

I was able to try the Peanut Butter variety, which uses real Reese’s peanut butter. It tastes like a snack-sized piece of chocolate cake! It’s not as dry as packaged cake snacks can sometimes be, so I was pleasantly surprised by the actual cake part. I couldn’t really taste the peanut butter flavor, though, so that was a little disappointing. The texture of the peanut butter filling was very similar to a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup: somewhat dry and crumbly. I don’t mind that texture in the peanut butter cup, but in combination with the cake, I think I would have preferred a smoother consistency to balance out the overall texture.

If I had to give this product a grade, I would give it a solid B. I enjoyed eating it, and Tastykake definitely made an effort – but there is room for improvement. This is the kind of snack that I would help myself to if someone else had purchased a whole box to share with others, but I don’t know if I would buy a whole box of these for myself.
