TastyKakeMinis: The Mini ‘Kakes’ that are….

…Awesome! (and Tasty of course)

A while ago I signed up to Influenster.com to receive their VoxBox -which is basically a box they send you (every now and then) of a new item or product to test and review.

The main point of it is to get people to test it and to also have them share their opinions on social media and basically spread the word about a new product. The more opinions they share and tasks they complete… The more points, potential prizes and a bigger chance they have of receiving a vox box in the future.

Sometimes a requirement is to blog about the product that you’re testing and as I do have a blog I will do that from time to time. At this point I must state that I was sent this product (for free) for the sake of testing and reviewing; these are my own opinions. (Oh and if I don’t like the product I will be brutally honest about it)

So…in this VoxBox I received Tastykake minis to test (yum!) Apparently you can get one of three flavours, those being coffee, chocolate or Reese’s peanut butter. I had a peanut butter flavour (yay!) which, honestly, would be my first choice of the three anyway

The theme of the VoxBox was celebrating so the VoxBox came with a whole box of TastyKake Minis, a drink cosi, party hat and some money off vouchers to share with friends (I shared with my husband and son because that way I know I’ll be getting at least one ‘kake’ in return and I’ll really have a reason to celebrate * insert evil laugh mwahahahah * ).

Tasks involved sharing how we celebrated with TastyKate Minis, using the hashtag #tastykakeminiwins on social media platforms of course. Luckily for me, that week I had just started my new job so I had a genuine reason to celebrate … not only having a job but also celebrating the coffee breaks and the chance to put my feet up after a day at work 🙂

So now the product itself- TastyKake Minis are small sponge cakes – in this case chocolate, with peanut butter flavoured icing and peanut butter flavoured crème filling. They come in wrapped packets of 3 – which has a little cardboard tray at the bottom to help avoid squishing 😉 The cakes are very sweet but small enough to not feel guilty about it. They have the perfect amount of crème and icing to balance out the chocolate sponge – which is moist and springy. I feel 3 cakes per pack is just the right amount, 4 would be too many and 2 wouldn’t be as devilishly satisfying. Overall they were a hit – a big thumbs up from me, my husband and my son (seriously I had to hide them to make sure they weren’t all inhaled in one go)

I can see this being a regular thing...(need more wine though)

Each Box has 24 mini cupcakes (so 8 packets per box) which is a good amount … but odd enough to make you have to buy more than one box every fortnight if you’re using them for lunch-boxes and snacks (sneaky but it works). The box itself is bright, secure and opens in such a way that you can store it in your pantry and still access the TastyKakes without having to take the whole box out each time, which, as a mum and maker of lunches, is a definite plus.

I had never heard of or noticed the brand TastyKake before this VoxBox (maybe if I had grown up in the States it would be a different story) but honestly since testing them I have seen their brand everywhere so this VoxBox thing works as far as spreading the word and sending out those subliminal messages 😉

There are MORE of them!

There are MORE of them!

I would definitely recommend TastyKakes, they have been added to our shopping list and I’m sure they will be a regular purchase from now on. I enjoyed this VoxBox and look forward to the next one 🙂 Have you tried these yet? Are you a TastyKake fan?

I know, I know, here I go again *rolls eyes*

IMG_2009It’s been so long since I’ve been able to sit down and get my ancient laptop to actually DO SOMETHING I ask it to do (Maybe I should have been TELLING it what to do all this time instead)

All I can do is hold my hands up (again) and apologise for my absence…and maybe blame a MASSIVE percentage on rubbish technology and joint pain but I digress…

I HAVE been busy with all sorts though. From ALMOST finishing painting the kitchen (photos soon eventually I promise) to starting a new job (yay me) – or a pretty intense health scare (thankfully all clear now) to a handful of new fur-babies coming to stay with us. It’s been a roller-coaster indeed but I’m still here and I’m still smiling 🙂

For now I just wanted to say Hi and also direct your attention to the “snapshots” on the right hand side —> That WAS linked to my personal instagram – click here if you’re an Instagram(mer??) & want to follow that account – but it has now been updated to share snapshots from my BritishChick account instead so hopefully that will let all you crafty people see the relevant things I’ve been up to…. rather than selfies of me and my dog…. *rolls eyes*

I shall return! (famous last words I’m sure but this blog is always on my to-do list so the intention is still there)

I hope you are all well and happy 🙂
