The Fabulous Bakin' Boys Milk Choc Chip Muffins
Advantages: tasty, convenient, good price
Disadvantages: a bit dry, not very healthy (but then we know that already!)
I love the Fabulous Bakin' Boys, especially their cupcakes and I spotted this 4-pack of muffins in Poundland. Unsurprisingly they cost £1, which I think is a good price as they're a good brand and make really yummy baked goodies.
The muffins come in a box and each one is individually wrapped in plastic. The packaging refers to them as "lunchbox muffins" and suggests that this would be a good item to include as part of a packed lunch. The packaging makes them convenient to just quickly grab one and stuff it into your lunchbox or bag to take out and about with you.
The Fabulous Bakin' Boys say these are "A vanilla flavoured muffin with milk chocolate chips - Individually wrapped for maximum lunchboxability."
The muffins are of a good size and look perfectly appetising, the cake is light and soft, and there are plenty of chocolate chips visible with a generous sprinkling throughout. They smell lovely and sweet and I was eager to get munching! The vanilla base is gorgeous, very tasty and quite flavoursome for a plain choc-chip muffin. The chocolate chips are milky and sweet and they complete the yummy goodness of the muffin.
I'm not entirely convinced that the packaging is the best they could have gone for, the muffins seemed a little dry and did not taste as fresh as I would have liked. But in the end time is money and convenience wins, and these certainly are handy to have in the kitchen cupboard.
These are quite high in calories and are obviously not the healthiest snack to eat, but they are a tasty treat and good as long as you limit yourself. One muffin is quite satisfying by itself and I found that I was not craving more afterwards, probably because the high sugar level satisfied my sweet tooth!
