Bread Garden Pineapple Cake Review

Bread Garden Pineapple Cake

Last week on Costcuisine I reviewed the Costco innofoods Keto Granola, Costco Genuine Coconut Drink & Eat Organic Coconut, and the Costco Kirkland Signature Almond Danishes (if you don’t want to know how many calories are in these delicious danishes don’t read the review). I also posted a new Youtube review for the Costco Ajinomoto Vegetable Yakisoba

Today I’m reviewing the Bread Garden Pineapple Cake that I found during my last trip to the Costco bakery section! I absolutely love pineapple flavoured desserts so was excited to try this.

I’m just going to be honest, do not buy this cake. You will be disappointed. This cake is very dry and crumbly, also really bland. It’s not absolutely terrible but it’s definitely not great. The icing was what I disliked the most, it wasn’t good at all and just tasted like sugar. I was hoping for a tangy, delicious cream cheese icing. The whole cake was a big let down, the best part was the chunks of real pineapple.

I paid $8.99 Canadian for the cake and unfortunately after trying it I feel it’s way overpriced for what you get.

The cake had a best before date of a week from the date I purchased the cake. You can easily freeze the entire cake if you won’t be eating it by the best before date or if you’re going to eat it right away you can keep it out at room temperature. This cake could be enjoyed for breakfast, as a snack or dessert.

One fourteenth of the cake is 180 calories, nine grams of fat, 29 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, fourteen grams of sugar, four grams of protein and 240 mg of sodium. If you divide the cake into fourteen slices each slice would be quite small.

Definitely not healthy, the ingredients list is long wth ingredients like palm oil, corn syrup and sugar that a lot of people tend to avoid.

If you’re a pineapple fan like me and think about picking this up in the bakery I recommend treating yourself to some other sweet pineapple treat!

Cost: 6/10 (wouldn’t be overpriced if it was tasty)

Convenience: 10/10

Nutrition: 0/10

Taste: 3/10

  1. This is a really dry cake, very disappointing. Why is Costco carrying such a poor quality item?


  2. I wish I would have read the cake review before I bought it. This is the driest cake I’ve ever eaten. The icing was good but the cake was tasteless and I had to chew it to eat it. Thinking about taking it back.

  3. Was so anxious to try this cake. What a disappointment! It was so dry you could choke on it if a drink wasn’t handy to wash it down. I can’t believe Costco is selling this. I wish I had read the reviews before I wasted my money.

  4. Ok, I admit I had no idea that Costco would stoop this low where they would sell Bread Garden products. Then again, I had to remind myself that often Costco sells inferior versions of brand name items/products — think factory outlet products but with poorer quality.

    If Costco wants to partner with a franchise restaurant or store, why not with the Cheesecake Factory? I don’t understand Costco Canada’s thinking at times, especially now, where I question their judgment more than ever.

    Here is another bizarre example of Costco Canada’s bizarre thinking. At our local Costco stores, they now sell Danishes in the bakery section. It’s similar (with an exception) to the ones Costco US carry. It has Cherry and Cream Cheese flavours. But what about an Apple Danish like in the US? Nope. Costco Canada elected to go with a dry Almond type Danish. There’s always a lot of that, but very little of the Cherry and Cheese on the weekends. Great thinking, Costco Canada

    Anyway, I’m not surprised you don’t recommend this cake. Thank you for your honesty, Natalie.

  5. I wish I had waited for you to review this before I bought it. I agree with everything you said about this cake. So disappointing.

  6. We also tried this cake and agree it is not worth the price. It was dry and the coconut icing was paper thin. Was very disappointed in it. I would not recommend this and I would not buy it again even if it was on super cheap.
