Looking a bit like meatballs, no?
Ok. Today's taste testers are me and the BF. No cat again today - chocolate is no good for felines.
I'm a little annoyed already (surprise face) because they have a 'best before' notice on the package...but clearly they don't label the freshness at the point of packaging. They wait until it gets to the fucking store and then JimBob or whoever tags it with a sticker gun with whatever date they feel like.
Sorry, my iPhone camera was zeeking out and not focusing. But you get my point: 'Best Before' has no date next to it. Sticker loosely posted on the packaging says 11/28/09. Therefore, if it's dusty, stay the fuck away from them.
On to the tasting. There are only four to a package, which isn't so bad, but I was surprised. Maybe because whenever I'm ready to eat brownies, there's a tray involved.
BF: Hmmm...not bad. Ok wait, there's a funky aftertaste.
Me: Yeah, like I sucked on a nickel and then ate a brownie.
BF: Yeah, like an alkali taste (note: BF is supersmart, so him referencing 'alkali' is not me padding the story).
Me Checking the Ingredients: Holy shit. Egg, Corn Syrup, Cocoa Powder - PROCESSED WITH ALKALI! Ew.
Me Eating Another: You just have to keep eating them to get rid of the aftertaste. That's how they getcha.
Final vote: 0 for Duane Reade, 2 for IHDR.
Star rating for the hell of it: 2 stars out of 5.
Next up will be Chocolate Chunk cookies I'm bringing to a Halloween party. Will be good to get a group opinion.
