Whole Foods Chocolate Angel Food Cake

Author: Healthnuttxo

I hope everyone knows how much I love Whole Foods. Super awesome finds, and their prepared food is SO GOOD. Seriously- if you haven’t tried their prepared pot pies or anything from the hot bar, I highly recommend it. Everything’s so tasty!!

So, shopping around I spotted a chocolate angel food cake. It was only 5 dollars for the whole cake, so I figured I could stretch it out over 4 days which is pretty reasonable for the price. I bought it and took it home, and could not WAIT to try it.

I have a special spot in my heart for angel food cake. I feel most people either love it, or loathe it. I am definitely a lover. I love the soft, fluffy aspect of it, and how it goes just perfectly with a smidge of vanilla frosting on top. mmm.

So, here’s a closeup of the cake. Excuse the dim lighting aka my lack of photography skills (wah!)

And…..a forkful I took out

So, after eating this all I could think was….this is a Whole Foods fail. It really was not good at all. I was SO upset, that not only did I waste 5 dollars but I could not eat what should have been a delicious chocolate angel food cake!!

First off, it should have been called a cocoa angel food cake, because it had way more of a cocoa flavor than a deep chocolate. It was very dense, and even as I picked the cake up I noticed it was kind of heavy. Not like “hey, this is as heavy as the dumbbells I use at the gym” heavy but more heavy than a cake should be in my opinion.

Another turn off, it was SO DRY. I felt like I wanted, no NEEDED a glass of milk to eat this. The combination of a cocoa flavored dry cake that was mildly sweet made a liquid to drink a necessity. I had intentions of putting peanut butter on it [ obviously ; ) ] but that was out of the question. Way too dry for that.

Giving it another chance, I took another piece and tried to eat it. Blech. It tasted like burnt sugar and cocoa.

WHERE IS MY FLUFFY , MOIST ANGEL FOOD CAKE!? I was so upset. Whole Foods, you let me down buddy =(

But….that doesn’t mean I won’t be back to buy your other delicious foods. I just wont buy this one ever again. 1 star

Angel Food Cake- are you a fan? Or no? Strawberry angel food cake is really good too!

365 Cheese Curls

Author: Healthnuttxo

I know how I’ve made comments in the past on how I do NOT like cheese. And well…

That’s still true.

But I don’t count cheese curls. Or cheese doodles. Or cheese puffs. Or whatever your preference on what you call your favorite salty, cheesy, crunchy snack.

Even though it may be made with cheese, CHEESE to me is the stuff that comes in the huge blocks that you have to slice yourself (or rather, have the deli slice for you). That kind of cheese turns me off. Especially goat cheese.

I’m sorry, cheese lovers, please dont hate me.

ANYWAY, how I fill the cheese void in my life is with cheesy snacks. Like these. The 365 Cheese Curls from Whole Foods.  Did I really NEED to buy these with the 8 million snacks at my house? No… But I’m me. I’m never satisfied. I always want more. So I  bought another snack. Oh well.

These were cheesy, and left a light residue on my fingers. Slightly salty, but in a good way. A way that makes me crave a Diet Dr. Pepper (or Dr. Zevia!) . They had a light crunch, with just the right amount of cheddar cheese flavor. Oh, and they were certainly addictive. Like, I’m done with my bowl but go back for a few more handfuls addictive.

These were delicious, if not perfect for cheese curls. I have had Cheetos in the past, and I think these taste almost identical. I would definitely buy these again! My only complaint, which I guess is just due to handling, was that there was a LOT of little pieces of curls, rather than “longer” curls. I mean pieces the size of the tip of my finger! But again, nothing major. Still delicious!  I also liked how these weren’t crazy high in calories, fat or sodium. 4 1/2 stars

If you had to give one up for the rest of your life, would it be cheesy snacks? or actual cheese? I think my choice is obvious 😉
