We were kindly sent a small sampling of Tortuga Rum Cakes yummy cakes and a package of they super yummy coffee!
The first sample cake we received was the Original Golden Rum Cake and I just couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into this baby! It smelled so wonderful as soon as the package was opened and my husband and I decided to have it as an after dinner dessert the night we received it. And let me tell you it’s one of the best Rum Cakes I have EVER tasted! I must admit though that the small sample sizes we received was a very tasty but teasing treat leaving us wanting more LOL!
We were also sent the Pineapple Rum Cake to enjoy as an after dinner treat on another night and let me tell you this one did not last long as we had my parents up for dinner the night I decided to open up the cake and it was gone in no time and was by far my favorite out of the two flavors we received and I will defiantly be ordering more of these yummy treats!
The last item we were sent was the Chocolate Cinnarum Coffee! I myself love coffee and could not wait to get me a nice hot cup to enjoy along with my Rum cake but my husband on the other hand is not a coffee drinker at all but I got him to just try a cup with me and we both agreed that this was one great cup of coffee. I will be making me a cup after dinner from now on!
