This past week I received a box full of delicious vegan and gluten-free goodies from a New York-based bakery. Even though you might not have heard about this bakery it has been in business for 25 years. It is primarily been a wholesale / online business focusing on catering to those with dietary issues.
I just stood looking at all the goodies deciding if I should rip into all of them at once or slowly choose the best looking
Gone Pie has recently had a new label created for their brownies. I simply love the colors on each brownie flavor. Each vegan and gluten-free brownie was a sizable portion, enough to share with a friend if one chose to. ;-) If you are interested in the specific ingredients, check Gone Pie's blog newest post about these brownies.
The chai brownie had the perfect amount of spice. It was very dense, moist and perfect amount of nuts. I still have half of it because I am still savoring each piece. I am going to make a chai black tea to add even more flavor. YUM!
Simply Fudge Brownies are for those brownie purists. It is very chocolatey, decadent, moist, and perfect for those who have not been able to enjoy brownies in a while. Imagine a whole pan to share with your family!
I leave the Coconut Brownie last because it was by far my favorite. I am not always a chocolate purist and enjoy having flavor when the chocolate can handle it. This brownie can handle it. It has flakes of toasted coconut on top and not even an overwhelming amount in the brownie. Add some coconut coffee to the mix and you can call it a night. Scrumptious.
This is another treat included in the box. I had seen it advertised on Gone Pie's Facebook page and knew I was going to enjoy it. A Sesame Peanut cookie. It was almost a mix of a nutter butter cookie with added sesame flavor. It was a soft cookie with a sweet and salty flavor.I want more. Soft cookies are my favorite.
Now hold onto your hats cause Reese's Peanut Butter Cups has nothing on Gone Pie's version. Of course, the bakery has come out with several versions in the past. I reviewed their vegan Peanut Butter cups back in August 2011. What is funny is that I was pregnant with Julianne then. I love being fed whilst being pregnant AGAIN! Hee hee.
This time around I had a chance to try the Caramel Peanut Butter Cups. These are HUGE and at least 3 times the size of a Reese's PB Cup. Look at the amount of chocolate! The caramel is vegan and is mixed with organic peanut butter to make for the most pure sweet and salty flavor. I actually shared this with my hubby. I so did not want to but he sure agreed that half a piece was plenty.
Do I have you drooling yet?
