We do love a good cake here on ChocolateMission so it is with great delight that we today satisfy many of the e-mails that have been sent our way recently to review these all NEW Barny Chocolate cakes. Yes you read that correctly .... Barny!!! Even the spellchecker used to write this review is telling my I've spelt that wrong, but no, believe it or not Barny is indeed the name of the newest cake line up to make its way out of the combined Cadbury/Kraft enterprise, the now dubbed Mondelez International.
Overall one could argue that Barny cakes are not only missing a letter in their name but also missing something in their actual makeup. The lacklustre chocolate filling is an unfortunate disappointment and subsequently make Barny bear cakes nothing more special than anything else being offered by the likes of dear old Mr Kipling or the Fabulous Baking Boys. One of the ChocolateMission team raised a good point that they wouldn't be surprised to find out if these are made outside of the UK in another more central European country. They indeed remind us of cakes you would be likely to find in the likes of Spain, Germany etc - not a bad thing merely just an observation! Barny can be summed up with a ruling that they are cute looking, but average cakes at best.
