Taste test: These smallish, round cakes were loosely like Mallomars, with a crumbly cookie bottom, topped by a marshmallow center, all wrapped in a thin chocolate coating. This particular favor also claimed to have some caramel at the center of the marshmallow.
I bit in to find that the marshmallow was more spongy than melty, and the chocolate coating tended to shatter into pieces, so it was a bit messy. The perfect marshmallow meltiness of Tunnock's Tea Cakes wasn't present. Still, the taste was pretty good, especially the chocolate, and I ended up eating a lot of them.
Speaking of eating a lot of them ... while eating my first four pieces, I couldn't really notice the promised caramel area. So for the fifth one, I got one of my sharper knives and tried to cut one right down the center to see if there really was any caramel in there. There definitely wasn't anything like what was pictured, which was a fairly large liquidy caramel core. Maybe a tiny bit of caramel. I could taste some caramel in most of the pieces, but neither the caramel nor the marshmallow were "gooey" as it said on the wrapper.
The box had a tray with a separate compartment for each of the 10 pieces, which seemed like a generous number. What I didn't even notice initially was that there was a whole second tray underneath, doubling the Tea Cake count to 20!
