Gourmet Gift Baskets Brownie Sampler Review

Gourmet Gift Baskets Baked Goods

Gourmet Gift Baskets is an amazing Gift Basket store, but they don’t only do Gift Baskets. They also have an entire Baked Goods section filled with cookies, little pies, cheesecake and regular cakes and brownies! Oh sweet heaven, if only I could explain to you my love of brownies. Those soft little squares of chocolate goodness are all I need to get through a day. I once actually ate an entire pan of brownies on my own. I can’t help myself! And in truth, I was going to share these brownies with my blogging team but then my family and I got a hold of them and well… that was that. They don’t even know I was reviewing these brownies! Ssshhh!

I was given a brownie sampler that included:

  • Belgian Chocolate Chunk
  • White Chocolate Macadamia Blonde
  • Butterscotch Blonde
  • Cheesecake
  • Peanut Butter
  • Fudge Walnut
Belgian Chocolate Chunk
Belgian Chocolate Chunk
The Belgian Chocolate Chunk was all of our favorite. It is rich in dark chocolate with little pieces of hard chunks amidst the softness. However, the Cheesecake came in a wonderful second; the top half being cheesecake and the bottom being a brownie, both of my favorite desserts in one! Each of them are very rich and one brownie would be better fit for two servings. I may love sugar, but sometimes it can put me in a happy coma.
Fudge Walnut

I’ve never actually had a gourmet brownie before this review. There are a lot of differences, like the texture is very smooth and extra soft in comparison to having the crisp border than a pan brownie might have. It’s as if you got the best of the center of the pan each time. The other difference is the quality in the chocolates that are used: very creamy and rich. They’re more fulfilling and also work great as a dessert to a nice meal in comparison to a typical at home brownie which I usually use for snacks. You can dress them up with a sliced strawberry and a glass of Port and have a gourmet dessert!
Cheesecake Brownies

The Brownie Sampler generally includes 2 of each brownie, but this sampler that I reviewed and that we will be giving away, includes 1 of each brownie. Don’t worry, 1 of each of them is enough! Like I said, one square would serve 2 people’s sweet tooth easily. But if you really want 2 of each brownie, you can get the Brownie Sampler in their Baked Goods section, but don’t pass up looking at that delicious Red Velvet Cake! (Oh, my.)

Now that I’ve given you a toothache just looking at all these delicious pieces of heaven. You should go check out all the other brownies and cookies and cakes available! I think I spent way too much time dreaming about goodies while nibbling on a White Chocolate Macadamia Blonde Brownie. Yum!

I received samples for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions are my own and/or my families and were not influenced by the sweet and undeniably goodness of these brownies (or compensation, whichever).
