What is Dove Promises White Chocolate Carrot Cake?
It’s Dove’s smooth white chocolate with artificial carrot cake flavoring and graham flavored crisps.
The first thing that pops into my mind when it comes to “crisps” is rice cereal. However, in the ingredients list they’re not labeled as “crisps.” Instead, they’re listed as “cookie pieces,” which sounds exactly 44 times more appealing than “crisps,” and it’s what should’ve been printed on the front of the packaging.
How is it?
I can tell you Dove didn’t just flavor it with cinnamon, dusted off its cinnamon-covered hands, and called it a day in the R&D department with these. It went deep into the artificial spice flavoring.
To be honest, off the top of my head, I’m not exactly sure what other spices are in carrot cake. I could Google it, but I don’t want all the display ads I see on websites to be about spices or spicy singles in my neighborhood. My tongue assumes it’s what’s in a pumpkin pie, but at different ratios. School me or scold me in the comments.
With all the spices, it does remind me of carrot cake. As for the cream cheese frosting that tops the cake, at times my taste buds think it’s there, but other times they don’t. Is there a carrot flavor? No. If there’s supposed to be some, it’s hidden it well.
The graham-flavored crisps provide a crunch that a baby carrot-topped carrot cake would have. Again, the front of the packaging calls them “crisps,” but Dove should be calling them cookie pieces because they crunch like cookie crumbs. As for the graham flavor, I don’t notice any, and I didn’t expect to with all the spices involved.
Is there anything else you need to know?
According to the packaging, the candy comes wrapped in colorful, carrot-ful (Dove’s word, not mine) foils that’ll bring bites of spring to your candy dish. But do you know what else will bring spring to your candy dish? A layer of Easter basket grass.
Thank you for letting me bring out my inner Marvo Stewart.
Dove Promises White Chocolate Carrot Cake is an excellent seasonal candy, and I wouldn’t be surprising if it shows up again next year with new foil designs or if the flavor ends up in another shape, like a bunny or egg.
