We went to a birthday party yesterday as a family and the hosts had purchased a small 6" World's Best Carrot Cake - Gluten Free Chocolate at Whole Foods for the kids to eat. I smiled and thanked them and thought, "kids, you better eat this because our friends were nice enough to think of you and your needs."
As I was slicing it for them, I took a tiny bite and oh my goodness, it was fantastically delicious! Then I thought, "wow, this was mislabeled. It doesn't taste like carrot cake at all, only like a very nice and moist chocolate cake."
When we got home, I read the ingredients and it does indeed have carrots in it. It is a chocolate carrot cake that doesn't taste like carrot cake. No matter, I love carrot cake and I love chocolate cake, and the kids were asking to finish it before we even got home (the hosts of the party gave us the leftovers.)
Here's what the company has to say:
"All of our fabulous cakes – Organic Carrot Cake, Gluten-Free Carrot Cake, Chocolate Gluten-Free Carrot Cake, and Orange Citrus Vegan Carrot Cake start with only the best ingredients: sweet, juicy, organic carrots, fresh eggs, velvety cream cheese, smooth dark chocolate, hand-grated citrus zest and the purest flours. Each and every Worlds Best Carrot Cake is made by hand, from scratch, in small batches with care and love. We use the best carrot cake recipe in the world. It’s that simple and it is truly the World’s Best Carrot Cake!"
