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.
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.
