Pepperidge Farm - Coconut Cake

5.0
Details
They switched to a cheap sponge cake and added artificial coconut flavor. The Coconut Cake for decades was moist, flaky, coconutty and delectable. Now...not so much. If it ain't broke, don't fix it...Knucklebutts!

User's recommendation: Not as good as it used to be.

Pepperidge Farm - Birthday Disappointment

1.0
Details
I asked for a classic Pepperidge farm coconut cake for my birthday and it was AWFUL! It has a new box and new taste that is nothing like the old cake. Everyone at the table agrees that it sucked and we had angel food cake with strawberries instead of scraping the styrofoam plate the way we used to do. It was a letdown of epic proportions.

Pepperidge Farm - Coconut layer cake

This particular cake of your has been my very favorite for years. The cake was always just sweet enough and had a very rich flavor. I got one not long ago, and was very disappointed. It did not taste the same, like you changed the recipe somewhat. Bad thing to do, it was perfect before. Probably will not be buying it anymore, sorry. I have not tried your other cakes but have on occasion bought the cheesecakes and always found them to be very good. I guess the old saying runs true, if its not broken, dont fix it. Do not know what you thought you were trying to improve, but believe me, it did not work. Should have left well enough alone. Pat Thompson

I agree with Pat Thompson....the cake use to taste great, now it’s awful. Total waste of money.

Pepperidge Farm - Change is not always good!

The chocolate fudge and coconut cakes have been my favorites since as long as I can remember. 1970’s I think. Just bought one of each yesterday and they were no where near as good as they were. Edible at best. Why the change? Unless you bring back the old recipes, you have lost me as a customer and from the looks of your reviews, many people feel the same way.

Pepperidge Farm - Coconut Cake Review

Why in the world would you change the recipe of this delicious cake?? I haven't bought the coconut layer cake in a couple of years but it was by far the best frozen store bought cake my husband and I have ever tasted. Webeach had one piece and realized the recipe changed. It was so bad that I threw out the remainder of the cake. So disappointing. Bring back the old recipe, please!!

I am so glad I'm not the only one who noticed this. I keep trying to see if it was just a mistake but they surely aren't as good now.

I use to race home for the last piece but now I find myself throwing most of it out! Too bad!

I guess all good things do indeed come to an end, at least when it comes to depending on an excellent (albeit commercial) recipe for the coconut cake that Pepperidge Farms throws together. I had enjoyed it off and on for over fifty years. Bought one the other day, and...

I agree, Pepperidge Farm Coconut cake has no flavor. What did they do to it?
