Fudgeez Gourmet Brownies is a slap in the face to the words "dark chocolate." Wow, this was disgusting. Seriously, I almost threw this away and threw this up. You can see how dry it is from these pictures. Josh hated this, too. I am at a loss for words as to how gross this was. I don't know if I just got a bad one, or if it's supposed to taste like this. It tastes like a nutrition bar that someone walked on with dirty, crusty toenails. The frosting on the top is the "best" part, but that's like saying the choice between eating vomit, dirt and stale, curdled milk is good. Obvs, you'll pick the dirt, right??? I appreciate the effort to use organic cacao, but DAMN. Icknast. It's even more insulting that the brownies on the site are $8.99. WHAT? Plus, using a Z in your name? UGH. 0.5/5.
Hard Crack Toffee cookies were both hit and miss. The first bite into these different flavors was good, but after that, they got stale and sort of flimsy real quick. Luckily, we ate most of these while they tasted good. Be prepared for a buttery cookie. The normal version was our favorite, 4/5. Sweet, concise, the the point, good. The, the mocha toffee and chocolate chip. 3/5 each. Pretty flavorful, but sort of weird.
Bequet Caramels are not a new product to this box as a brand, but the flavors offered this month were new and welcomed! The chocolate caramels were really great! A good combination of chocolate and velvety caramel, but nothing too fancy. 4/5. The salted butterscotch flavor was insane. SO GOOD. The salt was overwhelming in 2 out of 4 of the candies, though. The butterscotch flavor was spot on. 4/5. The cinnamon swirl caramels were my favorite. These had an excellent, strong spice flavor and it mingled well with the luscious caramel. Mainly, if the caramel is bad, you're sorta screwed, but this caramel is delicious. 4.5/5.
While the caramels were good and the cookies were decent, nothing makes up for that dirty tasting brownie. Yeesh. I am still reeling from it. Treatsie has been on the decline for me, and every month, I am tempted to cancel my standing order completely. I keep thinking something wonderful is coming, and this has led me to a couple of new favorite brands, but overall this month, I am unhappy with this box. Any thoughts on this month's box?
