TastyKake Lemon Kandy Kakes: The Money Shot


TastyKake Lemon Kandy Kakes

TastyKake Lemon Kandy Kakes were small, puck-like cakes that were topped with a lemon-y filling, and then coated all over in a THICK white sugar-y confection. When I opened these up, it reminded me of the lemon filling smell from a lemon-filled powdered sugar donut. AND I LOVE THOSE. Excitedly, I bit into it – SUGAR BOMB. In a good way, people. The thick white sugar coating was every bit the sugar-y heaven I expected and wanted it to be, melting all over my fingers and coating my mouth with so sugar sugar sugar. The coating dissolved nicely in my mouth, upping the sugar-y flavor of everything else it touched – the soft vanilla cake inside became SUGAR CAKE! The lemon-y layer? It was sort of masked by the sugar (I’m a huge Meyer Lemon fan, and this didn’t have that same citrus flavor).  Still, I got the lemon-y flavor enough as the coating made it SUGAR LEMON FLAVOR. Everything was sort of creamy because of the outside coating, and I was left with a mouthful that, like the smell, reminded me of a lemon-filled donut. But much softer. These may be overwhelmingly sweet for some, but I REALLY dug these. Super easy to eat like five in a row, and then go running down the street with your arms flailing above you.

    Wow, much better than I expected! Two things stand out – there are like, EIGHT (I stopped counting) different kinds of sweetener in these guys, and … there’s actual lemon juice/oil!

  2. Sophia says:

    Have to admit, the fact that the confectionery coating is the 1st ingredient, disturbs me. A lot.

    Do you remember the cookies called Lemon Coolers? I think they were made by Sunshine and were covered in powdered sugar. Those were awesome, wish they’d bring them back!

  4. Sylvia says:

    They still sell lemon coolers, but made by niche. Not sure if they’re different, as I have tried either.

Marvo knows what's on shelves before anyone. ANYONE. Our trusty leader on The Nosh Show.

Ryan is the fast food guru. His soft dulcet tones will make you want to eat french fries, immediately.

Dubba is an ice cream wizard. He's got two spoons and he's not afraid to use them. Unless it's something spicy.

Chris is an IG god, and knows his stuff. Plus, he's from Maryland. What's not to like?
