McVitie’s has launched a new type of Jaffa Cake that is infused with the fruity essence of pineapple – and it’s only on supermarket shelves for a limited time!
Now is not the time to debate whether or not it’s a cake or biscuit, now is the time to celebrate that McVitie’s has launched a new flavour of Jaffa Cake and it’s pineapple flavoured!
The new limited-edition flavour will sit alongside the traditional orange flavour, as well as other limited-edition flavours strawberry and lemon and lime – which have now become permanent fixtures due to their popularity.
Like your original Jaffa Cake, the pineapple flavoured Jaffa has a normal cakey base which is coated in a layer of milk chocolate, but inside there is a tropic twist with the jelly pineapple flavour.
You can buy a pack of 10 for just £1 in Morrisons and you can even get the new flavour in a cake bar version. Tesco is selling five of the bars for a bargain 65p!
The latest Jaffa Cake flavour was spotted by Will on the popular Facebook page Extreme Couponing, where he reviewed that it tasted delish.
His post said: “This is not a drill… NEW Pineapple Jaffa Cakes in Morrisons, Ormskirk
“Was unsure about these first but after the first bite, I’ve managed to demolish the whole pack… Let’s just say they’re pretty tasty.
“£1.00 for a 10 pack, not entirely a bargain, but expected for a limited edition.”
It has proved to be popular with over 1,400 likes and over a thousand comments – although people have been slightly divided about the new flavour.
One person commented: “Omg I need them.”
Someone else said: “Had them and they are gorgeous.”
Whilst another added: “NO NO NO pineapple is not a Jaffa Cake. Deffo a NO from me.”
Meanwhile, others were more preoccupied with the name: “Jaffa Cakes can ONLY be orange… or they wouldn’t be called Jaffa… nope nope nope.”
If you absolutely love Jaffa Cake, then you’ll be happy to know that you can now buy Jaffa Cake flavoured doughnuts from Morrisons that have an oozing orange centre, for only 50p!
