I know what you’re thinking… “Does Betty Crocker really need a food review?” Well, no. And NO… they did not provide me with this box to review. I’m doing this out of the goodness of my own sweet little heart. Truthfully, I wanted to taste this variety of brownie to see if it can stand up to my personal favorite brownie maker (from a box.)
So did it? Well, no. It is not as decadent, or chocolatey and it doesn’t carry that deep rich flavor I was seeking. It was not nearly as moist as my favorite brownie maker either. Also, it had a bit of a grainy texture to it. But the ingredients are set for Gluten Free needs, so why am I complaining?
Because I am a chocolate brownie snob.
Did I at least enjoy it? Is chocolate going to get passed by in this kitchen? Silly question… While it’s not
Ghirardelli my favorite brownie maker, it is no cardboard plain mess either. I personally think Betty Crocker did a good job with this product, and hope to see some flavors that they add to it. (hint)
For my Gluten Free friends (and students), I would recommend adding something to these brownies. Say… hot sauce! Seriously, a shake or two of Tabasco can really make these brownies pop!
And there you have it. Truth… in a box!
