You know, LaCroix: the sparkling water that is tasty and currently everywhere because they understand that people enjoy a variety of flavors and had the good sense to ramp up production when soda sales started going down.

Thankfully, the good people of Gothamist headed to the store to do some in-person reporting:

But they were in for a shock. The Gothamist reporters "were told that the cake was not for sale, it was strictly promotional and made from pieces of other, old semi-stale cakes they were going to throw out." However, Whole Foods quickly realized the error of their ways, and now "with 2-3 days' advance notice they will make you one for $80!"
