NUSH Foods has been a hot topic across the low carb communities ever since they were featured in the April Keto Krate Box. If you’re a Keto Krate subscriber, you probably got to try their Carrot Spice Cake – yes?
That’s where this all started… then I reached out to them, or maybe it was the other way around, but they decided to send me a mixed case with all four of their low carb cake flavors to try and review:
I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Dave and Muffy. We’ve exchanged a number of emails about taste, flavor & general “cake fun” talk… and I talked them into offering you an exclusive discount too! You can check out their four flavors here. ♥
The NUSH Foods individually packaged cakes are:
- Very Low Carb
- Gluten Free
- Sweetened with Organic Erythritol & Glycerin
A Great Healthy Low Carb Snack On-the-Go!
I especially love that they are individually packaged to grab ‘n go or for a quick snack when you need something low carb without any fuss.
For example, I took the Cocoa Cake with me on a hike last weekend and enjoyed it with Almond Butter by the river. 🙂 Nice treat!
Of all four flavors, the Banana Nut NUSH cakes are my favorite. 🙂
Here are the ingredients on that one:
Banana Nut NUSH Cake Ingredients: Water, Organic Flax Seed, Organic Erythritol, Organic Egg, Organic Banana, Organic Glycerin, Organic Walnuts, Organic Canola Oil, Natural Flavors, Leavening (Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Sodium Bicarbonate), Sea Salt, Organic Soy Lecithin, Organic Rosemary Extract. Contains: Egg, Walnuts, Soy Processed in a facility that also processes Egg, Peanut, Tree Nuts, and Soy.
I first tried the NUSH Carrot Spice Cake when it came in a Keto Krate box, like many of you. I just ate it plain, straight out of the package, and really enjoyed the flavor.
The texture is interesting though. Some people LOVE it, some people don’t. It has a bit of a grainy or gritty texture to it, so opinions on that were a hot topic.
Personally… I like it! They’re working on some new & improved recipes as we speak, so if they make them a little “smoother” I think more people will really love these cakes, but I’ve enjoyed them as-is. Especially when I dress them up. 😉
Speaking of, I also took these cakes on my trip to Orlando. It made for quick & easy meals and snacks on my road trip and in my hotel room!
That’s when I fell in love with the NUSH Banana Nut Cakes. 🙂
I stacked them with layers of cream cheese and added big juicy fresh strawberries:
Yum! 🙂 And such an easy low carb breakfast on the go! ♥
I did that with the NUSH Lemon Poppyseed Cake too (photo below) but I’m NOT a fan of “lemon poppyseed” flavor. Aaron LOVED that one though, so it’s just a taste preference. He says it has a nice tart lemon flavor and the poppyseeds are a great combo.
The Banana Nut remains my favorite. 😉
It’s great with cream cheese & berries (above), but also GREAT warmed up with real butter (below). 🙂
My second favorite NUSH Foods Cakes are the Cocoa.
I like the texture on the chocolate cakes better, they are less grainy than the others, and have a nice rich cocoa flavor.
I especially like them with something salty, like roasted macadamia nuts:
The best thing about them is that they are packaged to “grab & go” which is really nice when you just need something fast, or want to keep things on hand for those times you’re headed out the door – or stuck at your desk.
They keep their shape too, so they were great to throw in the backpack for a hike.
But I also like making a nice breakfast meal out of them at home – because they go SO well with coffee! 🙂
I mentioned they’re working on some new recipes, and possibly even new flavors. 😉 I got to participate in the R&D (research & development) taste panel last week, which was a lot of fun!
This is a company you’ll want to keep an eye on, as they have a passion for creating a quality product people can ENJOY on a low carb lifestyle.
I really love that NUSH Foods Cakes are made with organic ingredients, gluten free and very low carb.
I also really admire a company that supports the keto community, and love how friendly the people are that run this company. That goes a LONG way with me!
I hope you enjoyed my candid review of these new NUSH Low Carb Cakes.
I really enjoyed eating them! 🙂
Aaron agrees with me that they’re great for breakfast, and also for camping & hiking. They’re a good healthy, compact calorie-dense snack to enjoy – that you can easily turn into a meal. Plus it’s a “sweet treat” that’s very low in carbs!
While it’s great to stick to whole foods, do meal prep, and mainly eat meat & greens + healthy fats… there are times you just need something quick & easy. And also times you WANT something like banana bread. 🙂 It’s nice to have options, and to be able to treat yourself now and then, while maintaining your low carb lifestyle.
Have you tried them yet?
If so, I would love to hear YOUR thoughts…
… and YOUR favorite flavor.:)
