Review & Giveaway: Celebrate The Season Of Love With Mr Kipling

The DADventurer Commissioned Post Disclosure Logo

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the good folk over at Mr Kipling have been getting into the romantic mood with the launch of a new product and a seasonal box design. I’ve teamed up with the cake baker extraordinaire to offer one lucky person the chance to win a selection of their exceedingly good treats. You can enter via Rafflecopter below.

Before we get to the giveaway, let me first touch upon the limited edition Mr Kipling Love Season range. We were sent a selection of these cakey products and given the strenuous task of trying them out. I know, I know, it’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it…

The limited edition Mr Kipling Love Season range consists of seven different treats:

  • Mr Kipling “You’re Heavenly” Angel Slices
  • Mr Kipling “You’re Simply The Zest” Lemon Slices (not pictured above)
  • Mr Kipling “Love At First Slice” Chocolate Slices
  • Mr Kipling “I Fancy You” French Fancies
  • Mr Kipling “There’s No-One Batter Than You” Mini Battenbergs
  • Mr Kipling “You’re The Apple Of My Pie” Apple Pies (not pictured above)
  • Mr Kipling “You Mean The Whirl To Me” Flower Whirls

As the cake connoisseurs among you may notice, the packaging of the tasty treats has been updated to reflect the season of love. That means pink boxes, complete with flowers and an appropriate cake-based declaration of love.

Can we just take a second to reflect the genius? The dad pun loving side of me has nothing but admiration for the team that came up with the likes of “love at first slice” or “I fancy you”. They deserve a raise, I reckon!

Secondly, the cake baker extraordinaire has launched a new product in time for Valentine’s Day. From January through to Mother’s Day, you’ll find Mr Kipling Flower Whirls flying off the supermarket shelves – that’s because they’re good, not due to a poltergeist.

Taking inspiration from their classic Viennese Whirl, the new addition to the Love Season range features flower-shaped shortcake filled with strawberry jam and cheesecake flavour filling. Who would want a bunch of actual flowers when they can get a six-pack of these bad boys?

These didn’t last long in our house. The perfect accompaniment for a cup of coffee re-heated multiple times in the microwave because of the kids, the shortcake is soft but has crunch, whilst the new flavour filling gives a nice alternative to the usual raspberry jam and buttercream.

When it comes to the other treats in the range, my favourite is the Mr Kipling “Love At First Slice” Chocolate Slices because I’m a huge chocoholic. The missus is a sucker for the Mr Kipling “I Fancy You” French Fancies (in the order of chocolate, lemon and strawberry I’ve been instructed to write), whilst L more than happily ate anything and everything.

I hate to be *that* person who uses catchphrases from advertising campaigns as part of everyday conversation (“simples”, “wassuuuuup”, “I’m loving’ it” etc), but the Mr Kipling Love Season range really is exceedingly good. Soz.
