Product Review: Shabtai Gourmet Gluten Free Ring Tings snack cakes – gfcf/ soy free/ dairy free/ casein free/ kosher
Posted on | December 10, 2008 | 2 Comments
Ahh, more gluten free junk food! Just what I need! Ha ha, just kidding.
Shabtai Gourmet sent me these gluten free Ring Ting chocolate snack cakes to try out. They are supposed to be the gluten free version of Hostess Ho Ho’s, or like chocolate cupcakes with a vanilla flavored creme filling. They are also casein free, dairy free, soy free and kosher. Nice!
These fresh baked snack cakes really look homemade, like something I would make in my own kitchen. In fact, they look like a chocolate cupcake that has been flipped upside down and enrobed in a chocolate flavored coating. They are quite large and are packaged six to a box.
Unfortunately, the gluten free chocolate cake inside is a little dry and somewhat powdery. The flavor is great though, I just wish it had a bit more moistness. Each Ring Ting has a vanilla flavored frosting-like creme filling that is smooth and tastes great if you like vanilla frosting. The amount of filling varied greatly in the centers of these gluten free treats- some of the cakes had no more than a marble size, others had more than double that amount inside. The texture of the cake was smooth and not coarse or gritty, I really appreciated that.
Overall, these are fairy tasty treat, just be sure to have a tall drink nearby to wash it all down.
Pros: nice chocolate flavor, allergen friendly
Rating: 3 1/2 stars
