“ Brand: The Fabulous Bakin' Boys / Type: Cakes „
I have just consumed one of these double chocolate muffin badboys, literally one minute ago, and already I know this is one of the reviews I will struggle to write the most. There just isn't a lot to say, because, like Bakin Boys' cupcakes, there is a very distinct feel of blandness and tastlessness pervading the product.
I like my chocolate muffins big and sprinkled with drops of chocolate resting on top and scattered throughout. I also like the inside of a chocolate muffin to be softer and almost 'runny'. I realise these are packaged and so they can't be as fresh and delicious as those from a bakery, but there is just a resounding lack of any of the above. They aren't terribly big (but then, having 4 squeezed into a box, I suppose I should have expected that), and they are completely dry with very few additional chocolate pieces.
For those who enjoy chocolate, they will be a welcome option to snacktime - but their taste is nothing beyond alright. The texture is exactly what one would expect from a muffin, but the actual flavour is almost non-existent. While my belly is a bit more full, my tongue remains unstimulated. Bakin boys chocolate is just a bit characterless, and sterile.
I take into account the fact that these are packaged, but I still am of the opinion that there must be stronger such products out there.
I like to limit the amount of rubbish that my son eats however from time to time he is allowed to choose a treat when we go shopping. Recently he spotted some little chocolate cakes and decided that he would like to give them a try. I have to say that they did look rather delicious so I decided to take home a couple of packets. Well they were buy one get one half price so how could I possibly resist. The item in question were chocolate muffins made by The Fabulous Bakin Boys.
This item was purchased at my local Morrisons and cost 99p on promotion with a buy one get one half price deal so very reasonably priced I thought. I decided to buy the version with double chocolate well how could I resist they did look so delicious. Each pack contains 4 rather large muffins which are contained in a quite funky looking box with a scrumptious looking picture of the cakes on the front.
Each cake comes individually wrapped which is a nice touch as so often you buy these items and they end up being stuck together. The cakes themselves are quite substantial the consistency is soft and spongy with a sprinkling of real milk chocolate chips. They are manufactured with the slogan "grumpy free bakin" which I thought was quite amusing and I would suggest that they would be ideal for a lunchbox treat.
The baking process for this product ensures that it is made in a completely nut-free zone and in addition they have assurances that the ingredients sourced from other suppliers are also nut-free. The product is also suitable for vegetarians and the packaging is 100% recycled. Finally the product contains no artificial colours or flavours.
The taste test. I have to say I have tried other products in the past made by this company however I have to say I was none to impressed. This time however I am pleased to report that I found these muffins absolutely delicious. They were soft and moist and the addition of the double chocolate chips which were not only on the top but also throughout the cake were absolutely delicious. The cake was sweet however not overly so and was just perfect for an accompaniment to an afternoon cup of tea. One was more than enough and kept my hunger at bay until dinner time. My son thoroughly enjoyed his too, needless to say they didn't last very long in our household. Overall I would offer a recommendation for these muffins ideal for a treat.
Please also note that these cakes also contain Gluten, Milk Products, Eggs and Soya .
