Mr Shuck saw these cupcakes at the Red Apple and thought that even if they didn’t turn out to be tasty, I’d have something to write about.
According to GroceryHeadquarters.com, “It’s hard to find a more comforting food than Best Brands’ new super-decadent Fantasia Cupcakes, available in vanilla bean and rich dark chocolate ganache flavors.” “Fantasia Cupcakes address the trend of having a gourmet meal and a great, portion-controlled dessert,” says Bill Keeney, director national accounts, Best Brands Corp., the Minnetonka, Minn.-based purveyor of cakes, cupcakes, muffins, dough and baking mixes.
I wasn’t very optimistic, when the fine print described them as “artificially flavored”.
The icing was alright: it was rich and creamy with deep chocolate flavor. The cake was moist and dense, but had an artificial chocolate taste. I don’t think they were worth the $2.99 that Mr Shuck paid for both of them. I think he would probably try them again, though…
