I used to really enjoy a delicious McVities Ginger cake, but recently it just turns to stodge in the mouth. I shan't be buying it again

If you like ginger cake - don't bother with this!

I am a cake lover, but found this to be a fairly tasteless, tooth-clogging gunk - nothing like how this brand of ginger cake used to be. Massive disappointment. Will not be purchasing again.

Poor hot custard over it and enjoy. So good. Definitely doesn't serve 9 though! Happily serves 4.

Twice as good at half the price

5 stars

I like these cakes, especially when tey are on half price offer. I bought two so I still spent just as much. I hope that keeps your accountants happy and they keep doing the offers.

3 stars

What happened?? I bought one of these as a treat for myself and it's nothing like it used to be. It used to be dark and full of ginger flavour. Now it's pale and lemony with hardly any ginger kick. Ugh! Please bring back the original!

Palm Oil - forest destroying products.

1 stars

Tesco doesn't give choice. Try choosing pretty much any cake from Tesco's that doesn't have Palm oil in it - good luck with that search. This could be the best cake in the world, and the could sell it for a penny, but with palm oil in it I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole.
