Tortuga cakes get rave reviews

Reader’s Digest calls them outrageously good and Computer Games says that even the name screams pirate – and therefore gamer gif’t.

Tortuga Caribbean Rum Cakes, the No. 1 export of the Cayman Islands, are featured in the December issues of these diverse publications’ holiday gift guides, as well as in a special promotion in the gourmet food magazine Bon Appetit.

Supermarket Guru Phil Lempert chose Tortuga Coconut Rum Fudge as a winner in his Hits and Misses feature in the November issue of Gourmet Retailer, saying “this fudge is nothing less than rich and delicious. A treat reminiscent of the most indulgent of times.”

Tortuga Taste of Florida Rum Fudge also was pictured in the 2007 Gourmet Gift Guide in the November issue of Fancy Food & Culinary Products.

In the November issue of Entrepreneur magazine, Monique Hamaty-Simmonds is quoted in an article on entrepreneurs using mobile technology along with her photograph – holding a Tortuga Caribbean Rum Cake, of course.
