We Love Cake - Double Chocolate Brownies at Coles

We noticed these on the shelves at Coles today.
Gluten, Wheat & Milk Free cakes from We Love Cake.

Double Chocolate Brownies

Double Chocolate Brownies
Very Yummy!! A real brownie, fudgy but light texture.
The box contains 4 little bars separately wrapped in packs of 2. (So you don’t eat the whole box!)
Double Chocolate Brownies

Fruit Cake Slices
I haven’t tasted these as they contain some things that don’t agree with me: apple juice, Glucose-Fructose syrup & sulphur dioxide.
Fruit Cake Slices

Cost: $5.50 per box (Purchased by us. No affiliation with the product or suppliers)

These are made in the U.K. by We Love Cake.
 https://we-love-cake.co.uk/australian-products/ . Full ingredient lists on the site.

Their website shows quite a few gluten, wheat & milk free cakes. Maybe we will see more of these on the shelves in Australia.
