Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting: 8.5/10
🚨NEW ITEM🚨 If you guys know me, you know I LOVE carrot cake. When #Traderjoes comes out with a new carrot cake, I have to give it a try. I believe this one was an old discontinued item that has made a comeback! This was overall a great carrot cake – the cake had a nice flavor that wasn’t overly spice filled like some carrot cakes can be and it was pretty dense and moist which I enjoyed. There were also no walnuts mixed in, but walnut meal which I prefer over having actual whole nuts in the cake! It had a nice frosting to cake ratio which I feel like some of the Trader Joe’s baked items struggle with. I do wish the icing was sweeter and had less of a gummy, sticky texture. If you’ve had the carrot cake bundt cakes, that frosting would’ve been perfect on this cake! While good, I don’t think it quite had that wow factor to get into the 9’s. Also, I found the packaging to be difficult and I couldn’t get the lid back on after opening it up. So, I guess I just had to finish it in one sitting 😉It’s $4.99 for this cake.
Have you tried this yet? What do you think?
