Dear French Meadow Bakery,

There’s a good chance my girlfriend just ate one of your cakes that was four months old. After she’d been gnawing on this thing for days we looked on the bottom of the box and there is a sticker that says 0316. Does that stand for March 16? As you can see from the date of this letter it is July 28, 2011. Four months seems like a long time for a cake to be good. Heck, since there’s no year this cake could be 16 months old or older! There’s also a chance that that sticker means nothing, that it’s just put on the box to confuse people like me.

So we went on your website to get clarification. We wanted to see if there was information about how long your cakes are edible, or what that sticker means, but we don’t even see cakes listed at all! (Though there is a tasty picture of one.) We put in our zip code and it said you don’t sell them anywhere near us, so have you discontinued this product?

You might want to let the Hy-Vee in Ames, IA know they are selling four month old cakes if this ends up being the case, and I’ll let you know if my girlfriend ends up getting sick.

Hello Christopher,

Thank you for contacting French Meadow Bakery. It sounds like the cake was old.  Was it frozen when you purchased it?

The cake was made on November 12, 2010 but has a 9 month frozen shelf life. Please feel free to call us with any questions (651-286-7891) & try another product on us.

In Health,
