Chocolate cake is one of my very favorite desserts. I like chocolate cake in all of its varieties and manifestations. Very recently, I discovered that the Little Debbie snack cake company produces a variety of chocolate snack cakes known as Zebra Cakes and I am very glad that I discovered these snack cakes. Previously, I had eaten the larger Little Debbie Zebra Cakes, which feature yellow cake topped with white frosting that is accented with thin lines of brown chocolate frosting, hence the Zebra name. While I have enjoyed eating the larger Zebra Cakes several times, I much prefer eating the chocolate flavored Zebra Cakes. I am so impressed with the Little Debbie Chocolate Zebra Cakes that I decided to write a review of them. Presented here, in an effort to assist the consumer, is one food writer’s consumer product review of the Little Debbie Chocolate Zebra Cakes.
Little Debbie Chocolate Zebra Cakes are packaged in a standard – type plastic wrapper. I couldn’t help but notice that the package contains no cardboard insert on the bottom, which would help to keep the cakes intact and not lose their shape.
The net weight of the snack size package of Little Debbie Chocolate Zebra Cakes is 3.1 ounces (88g). The package contains two chocolate cakes that measure approximately 2.5″ across. While one Little Debbie Chocolate Zebra Cake is large enough in theory to satisfy my sweet tooth, every time I open a package of them, I end up eating both cakes, because they are so delicious.
The texture of Little Debbie Chocolate Zebra Cakes is similar to home made cake. The cake itself is soft, moist and held – together well. The delectable dark chocolate and white frostings that cover the cake add another dimension of texture, as well as flavor to Little Debbie Chocolate Zebra Cakes.
Taste / Flavor
The flavor offered by Little Debbie Chocolate Zebra Cakes is very good. The cakes maintain a deep and rich chocolatey flavor that is delightfully accented by a fluffy, white creme filling. When combined with the zebra – like white – on – brown frosting, the Little Debbie Chocolate Zebra Cakes are a real taste treat. I think that these cakes are even better than I expected them to be. I am a regular consumer of Little Debbie products and I am consistently pleased with the taste and quality of all of their items. These chocolate cakes, which I had not seen until recently, are, in my opinion, one of the best overall Little Debbie products I have ever eaten.
