Homebaked Gift Company Review by Rachel – November 2017

I would like to say a huge thank you to Sue at Homebaked Gift Company for asking me to review the wonderful brownie subscription box. I was so excited as I LOVE brownies!
Homebaked Gift Company is a new and upcoming company selling premium homemade goods.
There are three different subscription types you can purchase. There is a 3 month, 6 month and 12 month subscription.
The prices for the boxes are as follows:

  • 3 month subscription is £24.99
  • 6 month subscription is £43.99
  • 12 month subscription is £75.99

The box arrived promptly via Royal Mail in a secure cardboard box filled with tissue paper to ensure security.

You can subscribe to this here: https://homebakedgiftcompany.com/product-category/bake/brownie/

You get to chose your preferred flavour from 14 different options which is fantastic as you get to be specific with what you like and what you don’t. All subscriptions can be made gluten free at your request which is great if you have an intolerance or allergy.
You can choose the date you would like to receive your first box meaning this is suitable for all occasions, including Christmas presents. If you overindulge over the festivities, fear not as you can choose to send/receive your first box in January!
I received a 6 month subscription box, getting all 6 brownies at once. Under normal circumstances, you will receive 1 brownie a month for 6 months.
You can watch my live unboxing here: 

In the box I received 6 beautifully presented individual brownie boxes and the flavours I received were:

  • Salted caramel
  • Gingerbread
  • Chilli
  • Christmas
  • Orange
  • Traditional

I tried the salted caramel during my live unboxing and it was delicious! The top was drizzled with salted caramel and was soft and gooey and enjoyable throughout. I had a wonderful surprise when I reached the center of the brownie, it was full of salted caramel. The brownie was neither too sweet or too salty and was absolutely perfect. I could not fault this at all. Definitely moreish.
The second brownie I had the pleasure of eating was gingerbread. It has the cutest little gingerbread man placed on the top. On my first bite i was slightly disappointed as I could not taste any ginger. However, on my second WOW, very strong tastes of fresh ginger. This was a comfort considering the time of year, especially since it’s been snowing up in Scotland!
Chilli brownie. Now this one one I was hesitant to try as I’m not normally one for mixing sweet and savoury. I’m not surprised people love this combination and I was pleasantly surprised. It’s was hot! On first bite the heat was intense but the chocolate complimented it perfectly. Certainly one to tantalise the taste buds. I would 100% recommend this.
The Christmas brownie was different to my first preconception of what it would taste like. I imagined warm spices and a cosy night beside the fire. One thing I noticed immediately was that there was glacé cherries on the top of the brownie. Not one for normally eating the cherries, I decided to delve in and try this as it was part of the whole flavour combo. I also noted that there was walnuts, another festive treat. I tried this brownie and it was soft too, however this is not one for me.
image1Chocolate orange is a family favourite however I did not try this as it’s something I really don’t like. I do imagine this would be great for chocolate orange lovers considering the the intensity of the other brownies.
I would certainly gift the orange one and the Christmas one to family members as I have a few in mind who would love them.
I’ll save the best for last, the traditional brownie. Like all the others this was soft, noise and gooey. It was lovely and has a rich chocolate flavour and it was certainly indulgent. This is one I would certainly purchase again and would cater for the majority of tastebuds.
