the blackout chocolate cake ...

Everyone has been raving about the blackout cake of Poco Deli. I have read about it on the numerous blogs and in reviews on different magazines. Everyone keeps saying that it was delicious, rich, and really good. Of course, the chocoholic in me started craving for it.

FM got me one the other day. He saw that I was tired and wasn't feeling well (this was the same day that I got mugged) so he got me a slice of this cake.


I was really excited to try it. I had it all prepped up and because FM is such a supportive boyfriend, he even made sure that I'd get a good shot of this slice of cake. See above photo.

I got my fork, cut into the cake, and took my first bite. It was chocolatey, crunchy, and it was YUCK! I'm sorry but it was really YUCK! The taste wasn't good in my opinion and it was really disturbing, the amount of crunchies that was on top of the cake. Mind you, I love my mini chocolate kisses but this one just didn't mesh well.

It was dry and it felt like the slice I had was a week old. It was really, really disappointing. See photo below that was taken after two bites of the blackout chocolate cake of Poco Deli. 


I was really sad. It was a good thing that earlier that day, I had this.


This is chocolate cake from Starbucks and this one, is LOVE!

  8. to anyone, even not-so-chocoholics like me, that looks like a beautiful dessert. too bad, it didn't live up to the hype and its attractiveness.

  15. Awww.. Maybe that slice isn't a freshly-made one. The one we had during our trip to Poco Deli was really moist. Good thing Starbucks always have tasty and moist cake to save the day.
