Gourmet Gift Basket Brownie Sampler Review & Giveaway **Closed**

Wow, you are not going to believe the awesome brownie assortment that we got from Gourmet Gift Baskets! It was several different flavors of their brownies and Oh, MY Goodness, they were awesome! There were so many good ones to choose from I had a hard time making this one of the hardest reviews I have had to write in a long time.

Because they were all so awesome, I really don't have one that stood out from the others. I did try the Chocolate & Peanut Butter one first and was amazed at how they made this brownie so good! It is not like the ones where they just put peanut button on the top, no, this was actually made from scratch with several decorating changes here and there that I think I actually ate the brownie myself!

Here is what is in the Brownie Sampler:

Includes 1 of Each Flavor:

**Belgian Chocolate Chunk
**White Chocolate Macadamia Blonde
**Butterscotch Blonde
**Peanut Butter
**Fudge Walnut

I cannot tell you how awesome I think these brownies are. There are no words to adequately let you know how good they are. You will just have to use your imagination and when I describe them make them even twice as good as I describe them and maybe that might give you an idea of how I felt about each and every one of them. I will admit right up front that brownies are my weakness and I cannot pass them by without snatching at least one everywhere I go.

So, I really know my brownies. I have had bad ones, so so ones, medium good, good, great and then awesome. These rank right up there with awesome! I like my brownies fudgey or chewy if that makes sense. I don't like cake like brownies unless they are baked really well and have a good taste and texture. I have ran across some caked brownies that I have liked but fudgey ones are my ultimate go to brownie.

All of the Gourment Gift Basket's were fudgy except maybe the Fudge Walnut but it wasn't far off. It was chocked full of nuts and if you love walnuts and are a chocolate lover, then these will be your favorite. They were pretty darn awesome. I can't believe my husband let me at them all by myself!

The Belgian Chocolate Chunk was another personal favorite. I love brownies that have chunks of chocolate in them and this one did not let me down. It was awesome from the first bite to the last bite. Gosh, I wish I hadn't eaten all of them so I could have one right now! All this talk is making me hungry for them!

The Cheesecake Brownie really was a wonderful surprise. I wasn't sure if I was gonna like it but after one bite, it was instant love. I am a cheesecake lover also so combine that with brownies, and well, it wasn't pretty what I did to that brownie. I practically demolished it before Mike could get more than a bite or two!

The White Chocolate Macadamia was another one of my all time favorites. We love white chocolate mixed with macadamia nuts anyway. We love them in cookies and this brownie did not disappoint. It was actually like eating a jumbo cookie and that is one of the best cookies out there, so for me to say that this tasted like a jumbo white chocolate macadamia cookie is huge! If you love the cookie, you will be obsessed with this baby!

The Butterscotch Blonde was the one that took me by surprise. I normally don't go near blonde brownies because they just don't have it in my book but like a good sport for the review, I did take a small pinch off and wow, I could not believe that I really liked it. I think I ate that brownie in less than 10 minutes. We were watching Dancing with the Stars and I thought, mmm, I will let them excerise the calories right off for me! I know, it doesn't work that way, but it sure was fun! This is a real delightful brownie if you are not into chocolate so much, this will be the one for you. It does have a really good butterscotch taste to it so you will be impressed and amazed!

All in all, I think Gourmet Gift Baskets outdid themselves with this delish basket and I bet it will become a favorite once word gets out about it! They have many more to choose from if brownies are not your thing. They have cheesecakes, carrot cakes, candy, chocolates and fruits and nuts, whichever why floats your boat. They even have the Ultimate Easter Bunny Basket. Or if that is a little out of your budget, they have the Classic Easter Bunny Basket. Ahh, what are you gonna do with so many choices? They try extra hard to make sure that they have something for everyone and from the few baskets that I have gotten to try, they are all pretty darn awesome!

Hey, I just found out some interesting stuff I did not know! Gourmet Gift Baskets has several New Guinness World Records! One for the biggest Cupcake, one for the largest cup of coffee and largest cup of iced coffee! You seriously need to go check out that page out and look at the videos of them making the World's Largest Cupcake! It took 800 eggs to make that baby!
