Chocolicious Wonkacakes

Loyal Cruft readers, I am quite vexed with you. It was only this Saturday that I stumbled across Chocolicious Wonkacakes at our local 7-Eleven. After reading my previous treatise on Sno-Balls, and knowing my love of gaily colored treats, not one of you had the decency to inform me that such a tasty new Wonka treat was on the market.

Note the freshness date is about to expire any day now. Had I not found the Wonkacakes, they might have been whisked off the shelves without any testing being possible.

Have no fear, I have done my research and can present the secrets of the Chocolicious Wonkacakes.

You simply can't resist this packaging. I mean really, if it's got Johnny Depp's face on it, you have to buy it.

Looks like the standard Hostess cupcake except in purple and orange. The flavor was not different that standard chocolate & white frosting. I was eager to taste some unique Wokna flavor like a Snozzberry, but no such luck.

The true beauty of the Wonkacake is revealed once inside. Yes, a purple creme filling is at the heart of the Wonkacake. Once again, I hoped for a delightful new Wonka taste and strained my tastebuds for even a hint of berry. Alas, it tastes like the standard white creme filling.

You don't think that Hostess is simply using the same recipe as their normal chocolate cupcake and only changing the food dye color? Naw...

Maybe you're the only one of us that still goes into a 7-11 on a regular basis. Since I quit smoking I really have no need to go there any more.

p.s. With a creme filling that color it really should be berry flavored. Not cool.

I believe that would count as fair notice. Someone is not paying attention.

And now there's proof that two people still go to 7-11 for more than ciggys, beer and lotto.

Don't forget Slurpees. My wife and kids would die without Slurpees.

This cake look like artificial, or like plaster cast!

Actually, I was rather disappointed with these Wonka cakes; they tasted like ass to me =[
I think the dye job the creme took did a doozy on the flavour. It did for me, anyway. Two thumbs way down >.
