French Meadow Gluten Free Yellow Cupcakes

"OMG, I can't believe I ate the whole thing!"

Yup, those were the first words out of my mouth when I finished my French Meadow cupcake.  I have to admit I had some trepidation about trying another French Meadow product after my bad experience with their frozen cookie dough, but they looked so tasty that I had to buy them.

They come packaged in a cute little box of four and have a thick layer of frosting on top (they're dairy free!).  I took one out to let it defrost and sampled some of the frosting while I was waiting.  The frosting was pretty good - sweet and almost like a firmer version of Twinkie filling.   Actually, now that I think about it, it had the same kind of fake taste that Twinkie filling has, not in a bad way, just in that processed way.

I thought the cake was actually the best part, the texture and flavor were really good, albeit a little dry, but balanced the frosting nicely.  As it defrosted while I was eating it, I liked the combo more and more.  I'm not usually a big fan of pre-packaged cupcakes, but I really enjoyed these and I don't feel so guilty about eating the whole thing since they are only 200 calories a pop.  If you're having a major sweets craving, these will hit the spot for sure.

I'd tell you to check out their website, but it looks like the FDA came down on them for some misleading terms - ooops!
