McVitie's Chocolate Cake
Advantages: Moist, rich in flavour.
As I have mentioned many times before, I do love a nice slice of cake. This week, for a change, I decided to go for a McVitie's Chocolate Cake and a Lemon one too. I have had the chocolate cake before and I'm looking forward to tucking into the lemon one soon.
McVitie's Chocolate Cake comes in a plastic wrapper, which is coloured in a variety of shades of brown. There is a picture of large chunks of chocolate on the wrapper, which do look very appetising. There is also a clear panel, that you can see through and the cake inside, does look lovely.
When you remove the cake from the wrapper, you find it sits in white paper, which holds the cake together and gives it some extra protection.
This paper has to be peeled off before you cut into it, or it will be difficult to slice through.
This chocolate cake really does smell chocolatey and my mouth starts watering straight away. The cake is loaf shaped and has quite a solid texture, but is soft, sweet and moist when bitten in to. There are small chunks of chocolate, throughout the cake, which are soft, smooth and creamy and they melt quickly in your mouth. This chocolate cake makes quite a lazy snack and hardy requires any chewing at all.

This chocolate cake really is gorgeous and isn't too high in calories, if you manage to cut it into 9 pieces. So far I have only eaten it on it's own but I'm sure it would be lovely heated with custard. Unfortunately it has never lasted long enough to try this. As soon as the kids walk through the door it gets sliced up and devoured!
McVitie's Chocolate Cake is definitely a 5 star product in my opinion.
