[REVIEW] Influenster VoxBox – Tastykake® Kandy Bar Kakes: S’mores

“Influenster is a place for culture junkies to come together and share their unique opinions of products and experiences. Active members of Influenster get exclusive access to deals, promotions, and swag [that's what's in the "VoxBox"] from brands that thrive off the input (the good, the bad, and the ugly – they just want to know what’s up).”

The first item I’ve decided to check out in my spring VoxBox is the Kandy Bar Kake from Tastykake (http://www.tastykake.com). What Influenster has to say about TastyKakes:

S’Mores: made with real Hershey’s™ cocoa
and topped with graham cracker crumbles

Kandy Bar Kakes are the best of both worlds. Light and fluffy chocolate-enrobed cakes come in a unique kandy bar shape with a delicious créme filling made with your favorite candy flavors. Available in S’mores, Peppermint, and Peanut Butter flavor. Available at grocery and convenience stores across America.
Single Serve – $1.69, Family Pack – $4.49
I tried the S’mores kake, which uses real Hershey’s™ cocoa and it was pretty good. It was however a soft snack, which means you dont’ get the satisfying crunch that an actual graham crack has to offer. The only disappointing fact is that it’s a 260 calorie and 11 grams of fat snack. Not exactly something you’d eat everyday, or even every week for that matter. But it was tasty, so I give it a B-. It was good, but I’d definitely eat other things before choosing this.

I RECEIVED THESE PRODUCTS COMPLIMENTARY FOR TESTING PURPOSES FROM INFLUENSTER.
