Jacob's Club Cake Bars
This is a review of the Jacob's Club ORANGE cake bars only.
I recently bought a pack of Club Orange cake bars as they were on offer for £1 for a pack of ten cake bars. I thought this was fantastic value as it works out at 10p per cake which is pretty good for a brand name cake bar (makes a difference from supermarket value ones).
I packed one in my bag for a snack at work and although I was a bit dubious as I remembered after buying these that I didn't really like the Club Orange biscuits, I was glad I had taken one to work for the mid morning snack.
You get ten individually wrapped cake bars. The same size to any other manufacturer's cake bars and when you open the thin plastic wrapper, you are met with your average looking cake bar. It is covered in milk chocolate and visually nothing out of the ordinary as far as cake bars go.
106 calories (so the same as a two finger kit kat)
2.7g saturated fat
8.9g sugar (much lower than I expected).
So this is not too bad seeing as it is a little cake and we all like cake but normally avoid them diet purposes. ...
When you bite into the cake bar you are met with vanilla sponge with a generous layer of orangey-pink topping that is the consistency of a good butter cream. It is about one third creamy section and two thirds cake all covered in really nice milk chocolate.
I was really relieved that they do not just taste of overpowering orange. I found the cake bar overall very subtle- you can definitely taste the orange but it is nothing like a chocolate orange cake bar or the sort of chocolate orange taste I was expecting. I think the butter cream section makes these more like the filling in a Penguin bar- that sort of smooth, subtle taste.
Overall- I would recommend these to anyone looking for a new cake bar to try as they are fantastic value for money (go to Tesco!), they make a great snack or sweet treat. They are not sickly or overpowering and the cake is just a nice sponge cake. The milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate (as you normally find with anything orange flavoured) is a welcome change as I dislike dark chocolate and don't know why everything orange as far as chocolate goes normally has to have dark chocolate. Definitely recommended and not that bad for you as far as cake bars go!
Summary: Great new cake bar on the cake scene
