Now, full disclosure, I have not eaten king cake from every place that sells it in Louisiana. Not even close. So some of you may have seen these flavors, and I just haven't gotten to them yet. But I decided to make my own list in hopes that maybe someone who's actually making king cake decisions will see these and give me a call. I would make a great taste tester, just sayin'! Happy Mardi Gras, y'all.

  • Maple Bourbon
  • Jalapeno Cream Cheese
  • Chocolate with Chiles
  • Bacon with Anything
  • Gateau de Syrop
  • Steen's Syrup flavored Cream Cheese
  • Bananas Foster
  • Pecan Pie
  • Edible Lavender with Cream Cheese
  • Chantilly with Strawberries
  • Fig
  • Coffee and Cream
  • Almond Joy

And, I've seen these unique flavors but haven't tried them yet, so they'll be on the top of my list this year, for sure. Anyone else think savory flavors for king cake might be the next big thing?

  • Tabasco
  • Spinach and Artichoke - seen at Bywater Bakery in New Orleans
  • Crawfish (kind of like etouffee stuffed bread) -  also seen at Bywater Bakery
