Giant Teacakes, Giant Bourbons, Giant Custard Creams .... whatever could Costa make 'Giant' next!? Why not the iconic British Jaffa Cake!? Why not indeed they obviously thought! This latest addition to the Costa cakes range has our ChocolateMission taste test panel licking their lips. McVitie's Jaffa Cakes are a common purchase at our office - a week rarely goes by without a least one pack being brought in for our famous coffee breaks.
This week though one of our team found out about these new Costa Coffee Giant Belgian Chocolate Jaffas and we just had to buy some for a review. At £1.35 each (takeout!) we were expecting good things given the somewhat 'hefty' price tag. For the purpose of giving you all a perspective on the size you will see we photographed it next to a 50p British coin. As you can see it that has to be said is that the 'Giant' description is not inaccurate - these were damn impressive looking cakes.
Overall we've had mixed experiences with these Costa Coffee Giant cakes before but this was definitely one of the best. If you Google giant Jaffa Cakes you will find many examples of people make novelty creations - probably more impressive for their size rather than how good they taste. These Costa Coffee creations are both big in size and great tasting - we would recommend anyone who likes the odd Jaffa Cakes to give one a try. Let us know what you make of them @ChocMission.
