Let's eat Cake! with McCain: Deep'n Delicious ~ #Review

I was invited to a lunchon to meet with Tori Spelling about her new book, celebraTORI: Unleashing Your Inner Party Planner to Enterain Friends and Family, and the relaunch of McCain's Deep'n Delicious cakes with better ingredients.

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the event but they did send me some coupons to pick some cakes at the stores to try them out.

McCain was one of my childhood treats while growing up.  I remember they were $2 each and didn't have many flavours/choices.  I think they were also bigger or I have gotten bigger and noticed things are just getting smaller.

The relaunch of their classic McCain Deep'n Delicious Cake (Chocolate, Marble, and Vanilla flavours) "that are now with better ingredients as part of the company's McCain It's All Good commitment to make foods with real ingredients like you'd find in your own kitchen."   Hmmm, I wonder
what was in them before.  I am not into the habit of reading labels when I am purchasing food (I know I should).  The relaunch also introduced two new McCain Deep'n Delicious cakes - Carrot and Apple Caramel, which are make with real cream cheese icing.




My daughter and I tried the Apple & Caramel and the Carrot cake.  My daughter loves the Apple and I love the Carrot cake.  I think she likes the Apple cake more because it is a bit sweeter and learning the other cake was carrot she automatically vitoed it every time, bit after awhile she did tried a bit with some encouragement.  There is just enough cream cheese icing on the cake to make each bite perfect.  I would have loved to have more on it but that might be too sweet.  I would also love it to come in a bigger sized cake. It was all gone before I knew what happened.  Both cakes tastes amazing and I believe they will be a hit when I use them for my next dinner party.

I am not the only one who loves these cakes, even Tori Spelling.  "When I first tried the new McCain Deep'n Delicious cakes I feel in love with the Carrot Cake and the kids did too!" McCain press release

This summer, McCain will be releasing three new Deep'n Delicious cream pies - Cookies & Cream, Double Chocolate, and Coconut Cream.  They all sound amazing, especially the coconut cream pie.  I wonder what next new cakes they might launch next - Red Velvet? Pineapple Upside Down Cake? Tiramisu?

McCain Deep'n Delicious are available at major grocery store chains across Canada and retails for $4.99-$5.99 each.
