Not traditional king cake, but calorie conscious growing popular
LAFAYETE (KADN) — With Fat Tuesday almost a week away it's time to splurge on the seasonal king cake, and if you are trying to watch the calories this Mardi Gras Great Harvest Bread Company of Acadiana has just the king cake for you.
"It's another option. It's a very long nice king cake season and maybe people have tried a lot of king cakes around town they want something a little different, they want something that's a little bit healthier," says Clint Hebert, production manager of Great Harvest Bread Company of Acadiana.
Great Harvest of Acadiana is the only bakery around the area that offers a whole wheat king cake with wheat that is milled everyday in the bakery.
"We have a few varieties. Ours are more of a sweet bread style, not so traditional as New Orleans would consider them, but different than something you would find in Lafayette," says Hebert.
