I popped into my local grocers at lunchtime with my daughter to get some bread for lunch and right alongside the bread I spied a McVities Jamaica Ginger Cake. I hadn't seen one of those for years. My mum used to buy these for us when we were kids. My daughter managed to persuade me to buy one, although she didn't exactly have to twist my arm very hard! The cake is baked in a paper case and sealed in a brown plastic bag. On first opening the cake you can almost taste the ginger the aroma is so overpowering, although very, very pleasant and definitely inviting. A dark brown, moist, sticky cake, which is easily cut into slices, although I did find pealing the ... Read the complete review

I bought a McVitities Jamaica Ginger Cake over the weekend - mostly to munch in front of the X Factor as I was having a day off my diet. I had never tried the Jamaica Ginger Cake before, but I really love ginger and so it seemed like a good choice. It cost me just 62p from my local garage - which seems like a pretty good price to me, especially as the packaging says that there are ten slices within the cake - which equates to just 6p a slice. This cake is more in the style of a loaf and doesn't look much different to malt loaf (which I also love). It comes in a plastic wrapper which you can't see through, which is a shame because I do like to see what I'm ... Read the complete review

McVities have always been know to produce great quality and tasty products and this Jamaica Ginger Cake is no different! **What is it?** It's a sweet loaf cake made with ginger. Each packet suggests that it can be cut into ten slices. With each one containing only 93 calories. **What does it taste like?** It is lovely and sweet but the kick of ginger is still there. Also it is possibly the most moist cake I have ever had. A friend of mine likes to put a think slither of butter on it, however I prefer it without but of course the option is there for you. I wouldn't be scared off this cake if you find the taste of ginger a bit overwhelming. ... Read the complete review

I only recently rediscovered this, but my mum used to buy these cakes quite often during my childhood. Now if you've never experienced a ginger cake before, you might turn your nose up at it and prefer the safety of the more traditional cakes such as Madeira, Victoria, Lemon Drizzle etc. However, I ask you to keep an open mind, as this little cake is really delicious! And you don't have to be Jamaican to appreciate it! Ginger cake is a regional speciality which started in Jamaica, but has become loved by people of all nations. Ginger is used quite regularly in Jamaican culture, and features in things such as ginger beer and ginger tea. This cake is ... Read the complete review

If you have read any of my other reviews, you would probably already know that I have such a sweet tooth! I was wondering around the supermarket looking in the cake section, when I saw the 'Mcvities Jamaica Ginger cake' I had never tried it before so I thought I would give it a go. The cake comes in a red plastic packet with 'Jamaica Ginger' written across it in bold. On the front of the packet it has some information on the contents of the cake and on the back it has further information on the ingredients. The cake itself is very soft and has a slightly sticky texture around it and it very moist. The cake comes in the shape of a loaf of bread but ... Read the complete review
