Social media user @andikho_ryt took to X (formerly known as Twitter) a week ago to request Woolies to sell cakes by the slice for customers who live alone.

“Dear @WOOLWORTHS_SA, may you please look into selling cake slices or even half cakes for us who stay alone,” he tweeted.

A week later, a Woolworths customer @SuvaniaS gave an update with a picture of cake slices on the shelf and thanked the retailer for listening.

“Besties, no one works harder than Woolies. Look what I saw today at the shops: individual cake slices,” she tweeted.

IOL reports that the different cake flavours: rainbow, chocolate caramel and carrot cake slices are now sold for R39.99 each.

Woolworths also responded: “You spoke, and we listened… 😏 Enjoy it!“

@navuyo: “This is so cool! I will look out for it. In my family, each person has their own cake they like. This might make each person happy. Great looking out @WOOLWORTHS_SA.”

@southpaw94_: “The devil might work hard, but @WOOLWORTHS_SA works harder.”

@andikho_ryt: “I stopped buying whole cakes when I realized I was constantly rushing to finish it before it goes bad.”

@thandoau: “Absolutely. sometimes I want a peppermint crisp cake but the thought of buying the entire cake puts me so off.”

@Thipsy991: “Wow wonderful. Sometimes you just want a little slice of cake. Also cake for people who stay alone and stuff. I like it.”

@KiniMogale: “@WOOLWORTHS_SA communication is at the top of the game. I had an unpleasant experience at the Woolies by our local mall. E – mailed, and the next day the said Woolworths store manager rang me.”
