GourmetGiftBaskets.com Brownie Sampler Review & Giveaway! Ends 4/22!

I have worked with GourmetGiftBaskets.com in the past and love their huge selection and price ranges of gift baskets. They truly have something for everyone for any occassion.

Did you know they also have baked goods? I didn't until they contacted me to do a review on their brownies. I love brownies so of course I agreed to review them.

They sent me one of each of the following flavors:

Peanut Butter Brownie- YUM! What's better than peanut butter and chocolate? That's right, nothing. It had peanut butter chips on top and was just the perfect combination.

Cheesecake Brownie-Cheesecake was layered on the top of the chocolate gooey brownie for yet another perfect combination.

Belgian Chocolate Chunk Brownie-I thought that this one might be a bit too much chocolate for me but it wasn't. The Belgian chocolate chunks on the top were just a nice compliment to the brownie and I didn't find it overwelming at all.

Fudge Walnut Brownie-A total classic. Walnuts on top of a brownie. They didn't skimp on the walnuts and they were pretty large in size.

Butterscotch Blondie-Now here is where I thought I would have issues. You see, to me a brownie is chocolate and I never cared for blondies. I also do not like butterscotch flavoring. Surprisingly, I loved this blondie. The butterscotch chips were not overpowering and the blondie was just as rich and moist as the chocolate brownies were.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Blondie-Again, I don't care for blondies but again, I was pleasantly surprised. The white chocolate and macadamia nuts mesh well together and mesh well with the blondie brownie.


Oh. My. Goodness!!! THESE WERE AMAZING! They were super rich and moist. They were so good that I didn't even have time to take any pictures of these because they were gone in a matter of minutes. I had a few people over the day they arrived and between all of us, we all got to sample each variety. The concensus was that they were the best brownies ever and I had my friends asking where they could get them!

I would recommend these brownies to anyone for any reason. If you send them for a gift, that person will NOT be disappointed!

Just a bit of warning though: If you order these, don't expect them to last because they are THAT good!
