Thorntons Mini Chocolate Brownies
Advantages: Excellent taste & quality, not too expensive for the brand
Disadvantages: Pricey compared to other similar snacks, addictive!!
I was in my local Tesco not so long ago looking for some nibbles for a girly get together, and these were on a bargain price of £1.00 as an introductory offer, and they looked posh and attractive, and are made by the high street cocoa giant Thorntons, and nothing I've ever had from there has ever disappointed me! (this record is still intact!).
* Packaging *
The pack consists of a plastic tray which houses the 12 square mini brownies securely, and the tray is encased in shiny plastic/foil wrapping. The packaging looks very delectable in shades of brown and gold, with pictures of the brownies on the front, and looks very delicious and inviting. The Thornton's logo features quite prominently on the pack so you are in no doubt of which branded item you have just picked up.
* The brownies! *
These brownies should really have a warning sticker on them, once you nibble, you can't stop! They are so soft and lush, I would go as far to say they are perhaps the best brownies I've ever tasted! The chocolate is rich and tasty, and the brownie is soft and easy to bite. The bottom part of them is dipped in milk chocolate, and they have chocolate fudge pieces in them too. They went down a real treat with me and my lady pals, although I was also told off by them for bringing something which was so unhealthy and addictive (and yet so good!).
Each brownie is approx 1.5 inch square in size, and they are a good thick depth. They are perfect for parties or even general house guests, and could even be combined with other bite-sized treats from the Thorntons ready made cake bites range (they also do other mini items such as caramel millionaires style shortbreads - though I liked the brownies better!) to give your guests a range of choice.
* Price *
Although I got them at an introductory price of £1, I wouldn't even mind paying normal price for them (£1.42) as they were so nice. I probably wouldn't buy them purely for myself, but would definitely get them as a treat to share with others or for a party (so I can share the guilt of eating them!).
* Availability *
If you look for these in a supermarket, this product is situated in the ready made non-fresh cakes and treats aisle, along with things like Madeira cakes and Mini Rolls. I haven't checked but I imagine they would normally be found in large size supermarkets rather than smaller express shops.
Summary: Yummy ickle brownies
