SmartOnes Strawberry Shortcake

Looks: If you took the cake pictured on the box and squashed it down with your hand before freezing it, you’d have a better representation of the food inside – it’s the same ingredients, but the appearance is nowhere near as fresh. Also, the picture I took was after the recommended 30 seconds in the microwave, but my wife decided to stick it in for another 15 seconds, and it lost its ice crystals and loosened up a bit. Nevertheless, I was disappointed when I saw it the first time. 3 out of 5

Taste: Much better than I expected. I was expecting frozen tasteless yellow cake with sickly-sweet strawberry syrup, but the cake was surprisingly warm and moist, and the topping had a nice even strawberry taste. The whipped cream peaks picture on the box still tasted more like frozen fat-free lite ice cream, but two out of three ain’t bad. 4 out of 5

    I don’t see halves of strawberries…it all looks like the goo mix. Were there chunks?

    The “whipped cream” peaks are actually ricotta cheese or something. Once you know they’re cheese, they taste pretty good, but I was expecting icing!

    There are two cakes in the box, but I only showed one in my picture.
