Soya lecithin? Why not sunflower lecithin?

3 stars

Tasted good, looked good, but WHY do so many chocolate cakes contain soya lecithin when sunflower lecithin is available? Soya is an allergen and we can't all tolerate it. Come on Tesco. Get on board. Some of us have multiple allergies and intolerances. I cannot eat gluten, oats, soya or sulphites. So it is gluten free. So what? No good for soya intolerant customers. If we take our custom elsewhere we take the whole household shop with us.

NOT "vegetarian"!

1 stars

Beware! This is NOT "suitable for vegetarians"!!! The sugar strands contain SHELLAC! Since when have Shellac beetles been a vegetarian delicacy?!? Come on Tesco, there are plenty of vegetarian alternatives!!! Even omitting the sugar strands would be better! If you're vegetarian, AVOID this unless you want to eat beetles!!!

one and only tasty free from birthday cake

5 stars

Moist and tasty. Not easy to get the textures right with wheat free cakes but this is perfect.

Great cake for adults and children

5 stars

Great cake, people could not tell the difference between this and the normal cake. Well done Tesco.


1 stars

Awful tasting. My husband who’s got coeliac disease normally eats anything and he wouldn’t eat it. Says it all. Don’t buy it.

Poor quality, poor taste

1 stars

Bought for a birthday. Cake is dense and like cardboard and the icing coating is inedible. How this has made it through quality taste testing to production I do not know.

Great free from cake with all the flavour.

5 stars

Was so happy to get a cake my baby can sample as he's dairy free. I thought it would taste awful as it's also wheat and gluten free but we were pleasantly surprised. We couldn't tell it was free from and tasted delicious. Well done Tesco.

Why use Egg?

1 stars

Why can’t you make this fully free from? There’s no need to use egg when there’s replacements now. Fully Veggie plant based cake please Tesco.
