McVities Jaffa Cakes - Freaky Cake Bars (Sainsburys) By @Cinabar

McVities Jaffa Cakes - Freaky Cake Bars

Well here we have a another Halloween product in the run up to the big night. This time it is McVities Jaffa Cakes - Freaky Cake Bars, and the packaging is nicely themed with all sorts of Halloweens items and potions. I have been a bit frustrated this year with some brands packaging up the usual items with a new wrapper and not making any effort but I am pleased to say these at least have a “freaky” purple coloured sponge inside. It is something different in the manufacturing that males them a bit more unique. Granted the flavours aren’t new. The inner wrapper round the cake bars are themed too, making them a decent gift for Trick Of Treaters who knock on the door, at least it looks seasonal enough to give out.

The McVities Jaffa Cakes - Freaky Cake Bars are coated in a thin dark chocolate that cracks nicely when bitten into. The purple sponge is fun and bright, and the orange flavour from the Jaffa jelly layer is good and strong. These are sweet and tasty, and although traditionally flavoured with the Jaffa cake orange they are interesting enough to make them a good Halloween product. I like the mix of strong citrus and dark chocolate so was happy munching on these.
Update: these McVities Jaffa Cakes - Freaky Cake Bars did not survive in time to be given out to Trick Or Treaters, which I think is a positive thing in itself (unless you are one of our neighbours and you were planning on knocking our door on Thursday)…
