Ooey Gooey Butter Cake
Available in Hoboken: Ooey Gooey Butter Cake
The other day I was at Hoboken Daily News at 5th & Washington, and I had the privilege of witnessing a delivery of “goods” from a company called Prairie City Bakery out of Chicago, Illinois. They brought a pile of packaged baked goods (cookies, etc.) to Andy’s store. Included in the batch was a few “bars” called “Ooey Gooey Butter Cake.”
Recalling my days of indulgence towards “bars” like that (think: blondies, etc.), I asked the delivery man about these products I saw for the first time – and if they tasted good. The driver responded, telling us that there are other stores in the area that order thousands of these “Ooey Gooey Butter Cakes” because some of their customers love them so much that they buy them BY THE CASE each month!
So I bought one to “share” with others that are more tolerant to decadent carbohydrates than I am.
So what is the verdict on Ooey Gooey Butter Cakes?
I shared my (relatively) interesting story about the brief conversation I had in the middle of a commerce-based transaction in Hoboken. I mentioned how some customers are hooked as if they’re on “crack cocaine,” and that these buttery delights do not let anyone down.
And then I presented the Ooey Gooey Butter Cake to my recipient.
Three words: Eyes Rolled Back.
Yeah, apparently these “treats,” despite being processed God knows how long ago, and packaged in plastic – were beyond belief tasty. Yes, I had to try 1/16th of a bar to see if the pleasure was warranted, and I have to say it tasted “fresh baked” regardless if I knew where or how it was made. It had a smooth, buttery consistency, and satisfying “swallow.” The thing could be highly addictive if not eaten in a controlled manner.
They figured it out.
Luckily, I am conscious enough not to be swayed by products or tastes like this. I understand they are “pleasurable” to the palette, but “destructive” to nearly everything else. But I have to say – if you’re “in the mood” to screw around with evil treats one way or another – I’d probably recommend these. Eat them slowly, perhaps with a rich espresso-style drink. Maybe enjoying this with another person would be your best bet, as it will “control” your feeding?

(Note: anyone caring about their blood-sugar should NEVER even think about putting this product in their mouths!)
