I know it’s noon, but I just rolled out of bed…so it’s breakfast-time for me. Every morning across the U.S., Americans pack away sweets for breakfast, from 300 to 500 calorie donuts to 1000 calorie stacks of pancakes. Just cause it was a cupcake, makes it no different. Actually considering how dense this cupcake was (past-tense cause I devoured it), I’m surprised there aren’t more calories.
I actually ate half cold from the fridge and put the other half in the microwave for 10 seconds. Yummy either way. The cake is just fluffier when you warm it up. I’m going to have to try the regular ones. See if they’re as good. This one was jazzed up with a Peanut Butter Creme filling. Good, but not as fluffy as I tend to think of when I think of cremes, which might be because it’s frozen for shipment. That’s a tradeoff.
I couldn’t find a code date on mine, which I don’t like. I wish the website had more information to help with this, but it doesn’t seem to have much of anything (unless I’m not clicking the right things). There is contact information available on the page.
I do like though, that they are sealed and can be frozen until ready to eat. So in case your stomach is smaller than your eyes, you don’t have to feel obligated to eat it so you don’t waste your money…unless you’re nothing like me and it’s not a concern to you.
At a training for my job back in October, a fellow worker told me that a friend of hers is vegan and really likes these. She told me I could get them at Whole Foods but when I finally went to a Whole Foods and saw them, they didn’t really interest me.
It might be that I now work near a Whole Foods and I’m constantly stopping in (really, it’s an addiction), that I’m trying more vegan foods, or the price ($2.79 the day I bought mine), but I thought, ‘Why not?’ Actually it’s probably a mix of the three. I’m at Whole Foods more and I look into so much more vegan stuff now and how much it can cost that the price for these cupcakes, given their size, seems less excessive than it did back in October. Yeah, that’s it.
Just give them a try.
On a last note, though, they are made in a facility that uses nuts, dairy and eggs. So, if cross-contamination with any of these is an issue for you, you have been warned.
