Been eating this since I was a child and now my children enjoy it too. My review from 2014: lovely moist cake, Good flavour, always been a favourite in our house, great to have in the cupboard on stand by for a cake emergency. Unfortunately it has changed since then but that review mostly still stands. It is still good but recently they have removed the sticky ends that everyone used to fight over, shames as that was a real highlight, seems a bit drier now. Great on picnics or with custard as a pudding, ideal for when don’t have time or energy to make your own.

A shame it has changed so much

This used to be a cake 'back in the day' - crumbly. Now it's branded as a "sticky pudding" and this is what it is. It glues the teeth. Too stodgy for me.

Just as nice as its always been!

We used to get this all the time growing up and as a bit of nostalgia I bought one to see if its still as nice! It is! Both myself and my husband both enjoyed a trip down memory lane, we both agreed that its just as sticky and gingery as I remember. Ive no idea what the other reviewers are on about, we loved it and its now going to be a regular treat!

Not as it used to be.

I hadnt had this cake in a long time and I have to say its not like it used to be. Its got an overpowering taste and its not ginger its very chemical tasting its the only way I can describe it. Leaves a nasty after taste thats hard to get rid of. Wont be eating the rest it will be binned unfortunately.
