Tastykake® Kandy Bar Kakes S'mores review

hey all,

so as i explained in my last post, i recently received the Spring Fever VoxBox from Influenster, and one of the things i was most excited about (because i'm obsessed with sweets...) was the Tastykake Kandy Bar Kakes in S'mores.  seriously, i will eat any baked good.  one of my favorite things to do is bake, but i'll eat packaged sweets just as soon as i'll eat gourmet or homemade desserts.  i don't discriminate.  especially when anything is s'mores flavored.  i can never say not to the combination of chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers.  i'm just waiting for the day my metabolism catches up to my eating habits. anyway, the S'mores Tastykake is described as marshmallow creme filled cake:

so final verdict?  as someone who has a major sweet tooth, i'd say it was pretty good.  it's definitely no replacement for real smores, but if i were craving something sweet and convenient, i would be ok with this.  it is incredibly sweet so if you like more subtle sweetness, this probably isn't for you.  it's cake covered in milk chocolate and filled with marshmallow filling.  so it's not for the weak hearted.  other than that, it's a pretty decent dessert when you need your fix.  it's not overwhelmingly similar to real smores but there is some resemblance that's enough to satisfy me.

the inside:

while i probably won't go out of my way to buy it again, i definitely enjoyed it and would buy it again if i need something to bump up the minimum next time i'm buying lunch at a deli.

product info from the Tastykake website:
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.

Kandy Bar Kakes are available for $1.69 for single serve and and $4.49 for a family pack.

*i received this for free from Influenster in exchange for testing and reviewing it.

Influenster: Spring Fever VoxBox and Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara

hey all!

so this is my first blog post... i assume no one will really be reading these, but i wanted a place to share my opinions and reviews on the excessive number of products i try on an ongoing basis, so here i am!

to start with, i thought i'd share two recent goodies i got from influenster.  for those of you who don't know, influenster is an awesome program where in exchange for reviewing and spreading the word about new products, you get to try things for free!  it's pretty sweet.  if anyone wants an invite, let me know.  i've been a member for about a year and just got two new boxes of things to try.  the first is the Spring Fever VoxBox and the second is a Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara.

the voxboxes are the most fun in my opinion because you get to try a bunch of stuff.  this is what came in the Spring Fling VoxBox:

going clockwise: OSiS Dust It, NYC New York Color Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm, Secret Outlast Clear Gel Antiperspirant/Deodorant, Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure, and lastly, a Tastykake Kandy Bar Kakes, S'mores flavor.  i'm super excited to try all of these, so stay tuned for reviews!
