Arnott’s is exploring a new aisle in the supermarket with a brand-new product line and I was able to taste it at the launch. Ever since Arnott’s was founded over a 150 years ago, the brand has produced the staple biscuits and cookies for Australian homes and now they can also be found in the bakery aisle, with their delicious little cakes.
The tiny premade cakes are perfect for afternoon tea, or as a snack and they come in four different flavours. For the flavours, Arnott’s looked at the most loved cookies and tried to emulate cakes that comes close in taste to people’s favourites.
I was very excited about trying them. Arnott’s tried to simulate a wine tasting as for the launch, but instead of trying to find the different flavours in wine, we tried to find them in cakes, which was a fun idea.
The Iced Vovo sponge cake is the lightest of all the cakes and was the least sugary for me. It consists of a vanilla sponge topped with pale pink icing and raspberry jam. A lot heavier and sweeter are the two chocolate cakes, namely the Mint Slice cake and the Caramel Crowns Brownies. Personally, I am not a fan of very chocolaty foods, but these cakes will make every chocaholic happy.
My personal favourite was the very sweet Monte Carlo cake. The honey coloured mini cake made with coconut and golden syrup has a nice raspberry jam swirl inside, which gives it a nice touch.
The cakes are a Coles exclusive product, but they are well worth trying.
