My wife brought home a box of Sara Lee Pound Cake Slices. I’ve never met a Sara Lee pound cake that I didn’t like. It’s a good blank canvas for frozen fruit, whipped cream, chocolate, ice cream, etc. I’ve been eating Sara Lee pound cake for as long as I can remember. My parents always had it around the house along with frozen strawberries and Cool-Whip (I would appreciate this more as an adult than I did as a 10 year-old). This is the first time I’ve had it pre-sliced however. There was no noticeable difference in flavor from the typical loaf, though eating it with Cool-Whip and Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup, it’s difficult to tell one way or another.
Pre-sliced cake seems like an unnecessary product. I get the point that the slices of cake are measured by weight and constitute a single serving. This is great if you are in the mood for a small slice of cake. I am not, however, the type of person to eat a small slice of cake. Don’t judge; It’s just how I am. So unwrapping two slices, I was made aware of the amount of cake I was about to consume. More so than if I had just lopped off a hunk from the usual loaf.
Lastly, each piece is individually wrapped. Each small piece in its own clear plastic pouch. While plastic can be recycled, it seems like this would generate more unnecessary waste that would, in most cases, end up in a landfill.
I would eat this again, but I’d probably just buy a normal loaf and do the slicing myself. I like to pretend I’m not that lazy…
