Am I a fan of chocolate? Nope. Do I have it occasionally? Yep. Am I a fan though? Nope.

Never have, never will. Sure, some chocolate I like but while other people happily chow down on the entire bar, I might take a bite or two before I’ve had enough.

Recently, I was at my local Loblaws and there was a sale on these PC Decadent flourless chocolate cakes. I can’t remember what the original price is but it was on sale for $3.99 and my kid likes chocolate so I decided to pick it up and see if it was any good.

Guess what?


Product Review: What ingredients are in the PC Decadent Flourless Chocolate Cake?

Here are the ingredients that went into the PC Decadent flourless chocolate cake: semi-sweet chocolate chips (unsweetened chocolate, sugar, dextrose, soy lecithin, vanilla extract), liquid whole egg, sugar, water, butter (milk), natural flavour, salt. Topped with cocoa.

The ingredients aren’t bad and certainly not as long as I thought it would be. So, on that homefront, the PC Decadent flourless chocolate cake is pretty good. Sure, it’s a chocolate cake so you know what you’re getting yourself into.

On to the taste test!


Taste Test: how did it taste?

Here is what the PC Decadent flourless chocolate cake looks like: not much. It’s like a giant hockey puck but it’s not really that big. I opened the plastic wrap and immediately I can smell a hint of cocoa in the air. It doesn’t smell fake or artificial. My big kid sees it and says, “Mom, it looks good.”

I cut into the PC Decadent flourless chocolate cake and I can tell right away that it’s going to be dense (as if I didn’t know that already by how heavy it was for its size). The entire family had a small helping of the PC Decadent flourless chocolate cake.

Now, is it any surprise that my big kid loved it? Nope. She currently loves chocolate and the PC Decadent flourless chocolate cake certainly did not disappoint. The adults are a little harder to impress since the hubby and I aren’t naturally chocolate fans. The PC Decadent flourless chocolate cake was amazing.

I can’t believe I just said that, but it’s true.

The PC Decadent flourless chocolate cake is dense, rich, and thick but it’s so totally worth it. It’s got just the right amount of sweetness and as my big kid puts it, “It melts in your mouth!”

She’s right. It does.

The PC Decadent flourless chocolate cake has this really smooth texture and for my palate, it’s got just the right blend of chocolate and sweetness. Interestingly enough, the PC Decadent flourless chocolate cake tastes best when it’s closer to its frozen state. That’s when it has that rich dense cheesecake texture. I took a small piece to work and by the time lunch rolled in, my piece of PC Decadent flourless chocolate cake had warmed up to room temperature. At that point, it had more of a mousse texture which I didn’t like as much. Cold chilled, yes. Warm at room temperature, yuck.


Verdict:

I often find chocolate too sweet which is why I’m not much of a fan but if all chocolate tasted like the PC Decadent flourless chocolate cake, I’d be hooked for life (chilled of course). Now, all good things come with rules that must be followed. This PC Decadent flourless chocolate cake is rich and the fat content certainly shows it. So, as I pointed out to my child we can all have only a small piece since 1/6 of the cake gives you 25 % of your daily intake of fat. Considering 1/6 of the cake isn’t that big, that’s a lot of punch in a very small little package. She agreed and the entire family stuck to that. In fact, our pieces were much smaller than 1/6 of the cake and it was more than enough to satisfy.

The PC Decadent flourless chocolate cake is a delectable treat where a little goes a long way and at $3.99, even the price was right! Just make sure you eat it chilled.
