Our Review Factors
Since these cakes would be relished as snacks, we set taste and texture as the key parameters for our Britannia Gobbles cake review. The freshness, sweetness, aftertaste, softness, and mouthfeel were taken into account.
‘Red Velvet’ and ‘Choco-Vanilla’ are classic flavors that packaged cake variants can go wrong with. Did these cakes replicate the innate flavors? What about sweetness, was it balanced? For the bi-flavor variant, did both shine equally?
Packaged cakes that contain eggs can end up tasting and smelling very eggy, and may ruin the overall experience. We checked both variants for this as well.
Were the cakes light, soft and spongy? Or did they have a heavy, dense bite?
Would these pair well with a warm beverage?

Aroma + Appearance
The cake is sliced into thick slices that are rectangular in shape. We could see a mix of red and white swirls, similar to the graphics on the pack. One tray held 12 slices. These had a prominent floral, sweet aroma like vanilla.
Taste + Texture
The cake slices were soft and spongy, but when we bit into them, they weren’t too light nor too dense. The bite was somewhere in the middle, like most packaged cakes, and we’re not complaining.
As for the taste, it was quite addictive and slightly resembled to the red velvet flavor of mild cocoa laced with a some tarty flavor. Even the sweet creamy flavor of the cream cheese frosting could be tasted. The overall sweetness is balanced, just like the flavor of vanilla.
- Quite identical to the graphic representation
- Economically priced
- Lovely flavor
- Balanced sweetness
- Decent bite
- No broken pieces
- Too many additives and artificial ingredients

Texture-wise, this is very similar to the red Velvet variant. Neither too light, nor too dense, this was soft which indicated the freshness. In terms of flavor, this cake was dominant on vanilla as compared to chocolate. However, we did notice an eggy taste that brought down the experience marginally.
