Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturdays: Mini Triple Chocolate Bundt Cakes

Kiddo and I headed back to the little bakery table this week for our Trader Joe's review.  We didn't even need to circle the table fully before these little bundt cakes caught our eyes.

Trader Joe's Mini Triple Chocolate Bundt Cakes are petite chocolate cakes, covered with a chocolate glaze and sprinkled with chocolate chips.

Unlike most Trader Joe's sweets, there's no description on the package.  A box of 4 mini cakes runs $4.99.

My take: What's not to like?  Cake and chocolate, right?  Well, these underwhelmed me.  Despite their dark chocolate appearance, the cake was fairly bland.  Even the chocolate chips didn't taste quite chocolatey enough...and I'm a girl who eats chocolate chips straight from the bag.  Were they terrible?  No.  Would I buy them again?  No.
Overall rating: 2.5 of 5 stars

Kiddo's take: These appeared appetizing from the outside, but they didn't live up to the standard of Trader Joe's sweets. In my opinion, the icing and chocolate chips were what saved it from being thrown out - the cake was very airy and didn't have much flavor.
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 stars
