Tasty Kake: Candy Bar or Cake? Tastykake® Kandy Bar Kakes Review #TastyKake @TastyKake

Disclaimer:  I received a TastyKake sample complimentary through Influenster in order to review and share my opinions.  As always, my opinions are my own.
I received the Reese's Peanut Butter Kandy Bar Kake in my Spring Fever VoxBox. I loved the really looked like it was going to be yummy.  We enjoy the TastyKake® brand as a special treat and we were excited to see that it was branded with Reese's because that is a family fave.  

The Reese's Peanut Butter Kandy Bar Kake was really moist and delicious.  You definitely could taste the combination of the peanut butter and was a good balance. There is a cool chocolate shell surrounding the kake, it added a nice texture to the Kandy Bar Kake.  The size of the kake was perfect is not gigantic or super-sized which is fine by me. It is a perfectly sized treat.  The kake was somewhat crumbly though but that didn't affect the taste. I bought some additional Reese's Peanut Butter Kandy Bar Kakes this week when I was shopping and though they would be fun frozen since it has been so hot.  They were so yummy that is going to be my new thing for the summer....Frozen Reese's Peanut Butter Kandy Bar Kakes.  Perfect with a glass of chilled milk.  I am thinking that the two other varieties, York and Hershey's Kandy Bar Kakes would also be good fresh or frozen.  Kandy Bar Kakes would be great for kids, as a special snack too.  You can buy them as single serve for about $1.69 each or as part of a family pack for about $4.49 each. Fairly standard and not outrageous pricing.

Now, I want to be totally honest with this product. It is yummy. It is fun. It is a treat.  Will I eat it everyday?  Would I give it to my child everyday?  No.  One
Reese's Peanut Butter Kandy Bar Kake has about 260 calories, 11 grams of fat (7 grams saturated fat), 20 milligrams of cholesterol, 150 milligrams of sodium, and 25 grams of sugar.  On the positive side, it  has 3 grams of protein.  It is what we call in our family a "sometimes" snack.  I will definitely have to hide them from my hubby since his idea of every day sometimes and my idea of sometimes collide a bit. Try it for your special treat and let me know what you think.
