Ourson Chocolat


I think that I can describe this bear shaped cake in one sentence, how I felt about it might take a little longer. The chocolate was sparse, the bear was ugly, and the cake was wet and oily. Funny thing is I really didn't mind it that much. I guess it could have used a little more chocolate, but the chocolate and cake didn't taste that bad. The real problem I have with the Chocolate Bear (translated from French) is that I've been seeing a lot of these random shaped cake snacks lately, so this treat completely lacks any originality.

The problem I often have with a series of copycat snacks is I don't know whom to blame for ripping whom off. I don’t know who was the first to start this animal shaped cake trend. All I can say is I preferred the Igor (monkey shaped cake) more because it was a monkey, and we all know that monkeys are far cooler than bears. Particularly bears on roller blades, how lame is that.

Cake wise it's not bad, I mean it's no Hostess Cup Cake, but it's fairly good. As I said before it was a little oily, but manageable. The chocolate filling was ok, but a little thin. The bear shape is the biggest disappointment, it’s kind of stupid and not well done at all. I guess if you're really into bears, you might enjoy the novelty of this treat. But if you're looking for a superior packaged treat, or if you're into monkeys, this treat will surely disappoint.
