The Florida supermarket chain Publix is ​​indignant with several of its stores selling a hurricane Doric cake as the state prepares to be battered by the monster storm.

The chocolate chip cookie – available for $ 10.99 – is covered with icing that looks like a radar map and shows the eye of the storm rushing to Florida.

Shopper Jessica Sullivan first shared a photo of the baked treat on Wednesday, which she saw on the shelves of Publix in Julington Village.

& # 39; Publix has all your hurricane party supplies, & # 39; she wrote beneath a picture of the cake, showing blue frosting that resembled the waters around Florida, with green glaze resembling the state.

The cake was made when Dorian was a tropical storm that made its way across the Atlantic.

But now many are not impressed by the sweet treat, while Dorian is increasing in intensity.

By the time it arrives on Labor Day in Florida, Dorian can be classified as a category 5 hurricane, causing enormous danger to civilians and causing billions of dollars of damage.

Several residents have gone to Publix for storing what they consider to be an & # 39; unpalatable & # 39; product.

A Twitter user showed how the Doric cake from the hurricane looked exactly like a radar map showing the actual hurricane to Florida

& # 39; You & # 39; Hurricane & # 39; cookies are extremely bad in taste and very insensitive & # 39 ;, a woman wrote on Twitter at the end of Thursday.

& # 39; I'm posting this! #Publix must stop that tradition. It is unpalatable and not funny! & # 39; a second lady came in.

The supermarket was forced to respond to the criticism, with a media representative who wrote: & # 39; Thank you for your feedback on the cakes. It is never our goal to offend anyone with the products we offer and I apologize for disappointing you. Individual locations have created some of the hurricane cakes you've seen and I'll personally share your feedback about this cake.

However, the apology was not enough for one of the women, who shot back: & I practically lost everything to Hurricane Andrew [in 1992]. I don't take it lightly and it's serious to me. PTSD is real. Everyone knows that Public will not stop making this just from one complaint, but I felt I had to let them know that some people might not find them elegant and insensitive. & # 39;

DailyMail.com has contacted Publix for further comments.

Meanwhile, others believed that the Doric cakes from the hurricane were all very fun and that it was important to maintain a sense of humor during the stressful times.

& # 39; I'm crazy that Publix can't make hurricane cookies because a few people are too sensitive. We know what's important, but let's have good luck during this stress. It is important to smile once in a while, & someone wrote.

Another stated: & # 39; People should stop being angry at stupid things that don't matter. It's a damn cake! By the way – Publix also bottles water, making it faster than anyone else on trucks and in stores. They will be open after the storm to serve. The cake is your last concern & # 39 ;.
