Trader Joe’s Chocolate Bundt Cake Reviews
with butter cream frosting. Sold in the frozen desserts section.
Ingredients: cane sugar, sour cream (cultured cream milk), unbleached enriched flour (wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), eggs, chocolate chips (cane sugar, unsweetened chocolate cocoa butter), butter (pasteurized cream [milk with natural flavors]), powdered sugar (cane sugar, cornstarch), cocoa processed with alkali, canola oil, palm oil, egg yolks, baking powder (sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium bicarbonate, cornstarch, monocalcium phosphate), vanilla extract (water, alcohol, vanilla bean extractives), coffee, sodium bicarbonate, and salt.
Dense chocolate cake with chips in the cake as well. The frosting was weak but I was not the one who frosted the cake. It seemed way too stiff to have it run down the sides like the box front. In the future I would buy it again but would doctor it up for a nice presentation and flavor. Probably a chocolate ganache or something that will cascade better down the sides
The cake looked attractive but is was dry without a much flavor. There wasn’t a lot of icing so you can’t make it look like the photo on the box. I won’t buy it again.
This was the worst cake I have ever had. After the first bite, I went digging in the trash for the box to see if it was gluten-free or expired. I will never buy this again, nor do I recommend anyone try it.

Worth every penny – perfectly moist, rich and chocolatey.
This was the best cake I have ever had. After the first bite, I went digging in the trash for the box to make sure I buy the same cake again. I will buy this again, as soon as possible and I recommend that anyone must try it.
I’ve been baking and winning awards at baking contests and county fairs for most of my life. I love cake. This was an awful, miserable, terrible cake. Sorry TJ’s, someone missed the mark on this one. It’s not bittersweet – it’s bitter. To the degree of tasting medicinal, not like a dessert. Again – It’s bitter, dry, crumbly and really, really bad. I’m throwing it in the trash, and I won’t be checking the trash again to look at it again, for ANY reason. Or wait – maybe I will!! I’m going to bring it back to the store for a refund. Even the sweet icing couldn’t fix this disaster in the slightest, or offset the poorly balanced chocolate to sugar ratio in the cake. So remember – if you love dry, very, very bitter cake, rush out and buy this immediately.

I agree with others. Trader Joe’s missed the mark on this one. Frosting is horrible and clumpy (and yes I warmed it up per instructions); cake dry and crumbly. Not a good Bundt cake at all.

Worst cake ever. This is embarrassing to have Trader Joe’s name on it. Horribly dry, crumbly. Not a good flavor. It needs to be pulled off the shelf now.
