As for the cake in question, it does have the funfetti flavoring, but it's very subtle, more "notes of funfetti" than the sprinkle-blasted affair you probably devoured for your 7th birthday. It definitely deserves points for remaining moist and spongy in the journey from the Philly Navy Yard plant to mass-produced boxes, unlike some crustier snack cakes lurking in the corners of your grocery store. Plus, these'll play well with anyone who appreciates an old-fashioned yellow cake with chocolate frosting.
ARE THEY WORTH IT?
These puppies aren't going to sway you away from your beloved PB Kandy Kakes or Krimpets, but they're a pretty solid snack cake. If you're a card-carrying member of the cult of Tastykake, make sure to snap some up during their limited-run.
