Smart Baking Company recently launched a new sugar free product for us to try -- the Raspberry Cream Smartcake!
Smartcakes are a high protein, nutritious snack cake that are only 38 calories and 0g net carbs per serving. Pretty impressive, huh?
I was so excited when I saw the e-mail about this new flavor. I absolutely love raspberries AND Smartcakes. It's almost like they made these specifically for me.

Look and Feel
Each individual packet contains 2 Smartcakes that are protected by a thin layer of paper to prevent breakage.
Much like the other flavors, these were light and delicate. They have a soft, spongy texture that resembles a cupcake.
Peel back the paper and you'll find a beautiful color transition from hot pink color to light orange. It reminds me of a sunset!
The top of the cake is encrusted with bits of crystallized sweetener that adds an interesting textural component.
Ingredients & Nutrition Information
The ingredients are generally the same for all Smartcakes, but the flavorings will vary.

- 2.5g fat
- 9g carbs
- 5g fiber

In my first bite, I couldn't identify that it was raspberry. There is an overarching berry flavor, but it didn't immediately scream raspberry.
With that being said, I thought it was delicious! I savored each and every bite.
As I made my way through the pack (I ate both... whoops), it reminded me of something familiar.
I couldn't put my finger on it. For hours.
It wasn't until I ate the second pack the following day that it hit me -- it totally reminded me of a cherry or raspberry Blow Pop!
Would I buy them?
YES! I have been enjoying Smartcakes regularly for a few years now and think they're a great option to keep on hand for Keto.
The Raspberry Cream flavor is no exception! Between this and the Lemon, I don't think I could choose a favorite!
Final thoughts: Smartcake Review
