* It tastes like cornbread with frosting on it. Not exactly what I expected...but wasn't the worst either.

* This is a review for the German Chocolate flavor. I have tried a few of the flavors of this product now, and generally they are quite good. The German Chocolate flavor, however, has issues. The cake part itself is good, nice flavor and texture. It has a good German Chocolate flavor over all. The problem is the frosting. First, the use of almonds instead of pecans. I get that almonds are probably a little less low carb, and the substitution alone would not be enough to keep me from purchasing again. However, the texture of the frosting is somewhat a combination of mucous and the skin that forms on top of cooked pudding when you don't put some plastic wrap that touches the surface on it. It has a great German Chocolate frosting flavor (except that there is no pecan flavor), but that horrid texture! When you put it in your mouth, you get the flavor and think, "Hey, this isn't bad!" Then you start to realize that it feels like pudding skin, then as it warms up it takes on that slimy, mucous feeling. Shudder. I had to peel off all the frosting... it came off in one sheet... that should also tell you something about it. I won't be ordering this one again.
