I love Christmas and I love all of the food you can get this time of year. For me Christmas is a time for eating things that are traditional but also for trying something new. So when I was asked if I wanted to try out the new edible Christmas Cards from PopACard I said yes!
You order the card through their website and there are a range of designs on offer, and as well as Christmas they also do Birthday cards too. You can even use your own photo for the design if you choose.
After you have picked the outside, it’s on the the message in the middle and then on to the best bit! The edible bit!
You can choose from Marshmallows, Brownies (which are gluten free) or Pop Cakes which are little cakes on lolly sticks. There are a range of pop cakes to choose from – I went for the chocolate and vanilla ones, but there are 8 different options to choose from including ‘Red Sparkles’ which sound very interesting.
Once the simple ordering process was complete the card arrived really quickly and it looks really great. When I opened the card, the chocolate coating which forms the outside of the pop cakes were cracked in places on three of the four Pop Cakes, which (when we looked at the box) seemed to be because something heavy had been places on the box whilst it was in the post.
This superficial damage didn’t change the way they taste but it’s a bit of a shame as they did look so lovely when you couldn’t see the cracks.
In our card there were two chocolate and two vanilla cake pops. The vanilla Cake Pops had a white chocolate coating and the chocolate Cake Pops had a milk chocolate coating. My husband, Boo and I tried each of them and we all preferred the chocolate one. The vanilla one was ok, but the chocolate nicer. It was was rich without being sickly.
The edible Christmas cards with the Pop Cakes cost £15 including postage and packing. For me this is a little on the expensive side, especially for the amount of ‘cake’ in it and the fact that two of them were only ok in terms of taste. But maybe the other flavours are worth the price tag?
I think that it covers a kind of cross between a present and a Christmas card. Maybe for relatives you don’t see often or something like that?
