M&S unveils a spanking new £4 cake jar, which has some customers “totally angry.”
MARKS AND SPENCER has added a new cake jar flavor to its lineup, which also includes raspberry ripple and Percy Pig. Customers, on the other hand, are split on the debut.
In April, Marks and Spencer debuted its cake jar line, which was later expanded to include a Percy Pig flavor. Customers thought they were overpriced at the time, and the arrival of M&S’ new flavor has polarized shoppers once again.
The single-serving cake comes in a jar that is both reusable and recyclable.
Customers may find the culinary item at Marks and Spencer’s cake area for £4.
“These cake jars are extremely delicious and perfect for picnics, lunches on the go – or pretty much whenever you need a sweet fix,” Natalie Tate, Lead Product Developer for M&S cakes, stated at the time of the launch.
“The days of picking a cake to fit everyone’s tastes are long gone; now you can mix and match to suit everyone.
“Like jumping directly into an amazing ice cream tub, there’s something about diving in with a spoon that makes the experience all the more delightful.
“I love Trillionaire’s because it’s the ultimate decadent, chocolatey caramel delight – a must try!” But, of course, they’re all delectable.”
Madeira sponge cake, lemon buttercream, lemon curd, and meringue bits make up the new lemon meringue flavor.
Kevs Snack Reviews, a gastronomic Instagram account, observed the new addition and gave it an eight out of ten rating.
Customers were divided when they took to social media to offer their opinions on the goods.
“Spent £4 on one of those M&S cake in a jar things and it was terrible, so pricey, utterly fuming,” one user commented.
“They look delicious,” one person said, “but I managed to make my own version for for £2.”
“How can they charge £4 for one of them?” one consumer wondered.
Another buyer said, “Just to let people know, M&S sells a complete cake for £3 and a cake jar for £4, just make your own.”
“These are way too expensive,” one customer said. “If they were cheaper, I would absolutely buy.”
Other customers were enthusiastic about the new flavor, with one saying, “I’ve been hoping for a lemon one!” This year’s picnics were a breeze.”
“I liked the other flavors, definitely adding this.” Brinkwire Summary News, said another.
