Good Humor Birthday Cake Bars

[New for 2013] Happy New Year everyone! It was kind of fun posting a birthday product last January 1st... so let's do it again!

Good Humor Birthday Cake Bars

With nondescript white wrapper removed, it's not really an impressive first view.

Doh, the cake insides compress on cutting.

It's cake flavor, and as expected, I don't really like it on my first few bites. It's too sweet, and it's got an icy consistency to it, maybe from sitting for a month or so in the deep freezer, or maybe that's just the way it is. I'm unamused, but this thing is low cal and low fat, so I keep eating...

And then, well, I started to warm up to it. While the crumb bits aren't nearly as vibrant as they are on the box, there is a fun factor to them. Instead of biting them like some kind of soft cake crumbles, I actually tried to savor them a bit. It's kind of like eating the sprinkles off a sugar cookie. Apparently I was attacking this bar all wrong.

See, if you break it, it looks a lot more like cake.

So while my initial reaction was bleck, I pressed on and realized these aren't that bad. That's why you can't judge a food on a just a few bites. You need to have the whole bar, and then second scoop another bar tomorrow to be fair.  I needed time to settle in and realize what this treat was going for. I don't love it, and I never will, but they did try here.

Verdict?  very sweet, so-so quality
Buy Again?  if my daughter insisted

Mmm, I love them, because it is not often that you can get that cake-taste for only 130 calories.

Too sweet for me as well. I will never buy it again.
