Nabisco keeps rolling out new varieties of their “Cakester” brand. And the surprising thing is, they just keep getting better and better.
I was on a mixer run with The Instigator when I spotted them. It was too late to make a purchase, but I knew I’d be back soon. The brilliant red caught my eye and I quickly read the box. And then read it again. My eyes weren’t deceiving me. There were now Nilla Cakesters with red filling. It was such a fleeting glimpse, I couldn’t tell if Nabisco had just added some red food coloring or if they were a different flavor. Obviously, from the title of this post, they were a different flavor.
But would they be as good? One of the things that I really liked about the original Nilla Cakesters was the fact that they really did taste like Nilla Wafers. Unless I missed some major shit, Nabisco had never put out Strawberry Nilla Wafers. This was something new. Something . . . beautiful.
They are exactly what you would think they are. The Nilla Cakester cakes with strawberry-flavored filling instead of vanilla. While the vanilla-filled cakes really do taste exactly like Nilla Wafers, the strawberry filling makes this version taste like a mini-Strawberry Shortcake. Mmmm. This is great.
In closing, I don’t like you if you don’t love these. I don’t want to know that there are people capable of such things in this world.
