Taste test: This chocolate-coated pound cake came in a somewhat confusing package, as the picture made it look as if the cake were pre-sliced, but when we opened it, that turned out not to be the case. Pre-sliced would have been quite convenient, but we were able to get access to a knife, so it wasn't a show-stopper. The other confusing thing was that this supposed pound cake didn't actually weigh a pound — but it was close at 14.1 ounces.
With our knife, we cut off pieces so that our snackers could give it a try. The cake was soft and fairly moist, so the texture was pretty good. The slices from the ends of the cake had the most chocolate, but the coating was thick enough to be able to taste some chocolate on every slice. The taste was pretty odd, as lemon and chocolate made for a weird combination.
Smell test: Not much.
From the package: “Imported from Germany” ... “Authentic German”
