Listen to this, right. A website from which the most exquisite variety of brownies can be ordered directly to your front door and, begrudgingly, to the front door of your nearest and dearest. This may sound too good to be true but fortunately, thanks to The Brownie Post, this is now a reality.
So why brownies? Well it seems that the brownies from Dishes and Spoons were quite the popular treat and with them being in such high demand, Anna and James thought it would be a great idea to make these beauties accessible to those poor people not fortunate enough to live in the fine city of Manchester.
Ordering a box for delivery couldn't be easier, as I discovered when I decided to get a box sent out to my auntie in Suffolk. I still owed her a Christmas presents thank you letter and with my track record for remembering to buy writing paper, stamps, envelopes etc. it really was looking like it was never going to happen. Problem solved - a delicious box of Swirled Choc and Peanut Butter Brownies are now on their merry way to her with the thank you message written on by the kind folk at The Brownie Post - a delectable alternative to a letter if you ask me.
Another reason the concept is so great is that everyone likes getting parcels through the post. That's partly why I love eBay so much. You can imagine my excitement when Anna told me I was getting free brownies, but free brownies THROUGH THE POST just made it all the better.
I'd just decided to make myself a chai tea before sitting down to my first brownie which happened to be an amazing combination with the cardamom flavour in the brownies.
Luckily those of us with an allergy to gluten are not excluded from the brownie fun as The Brownie Post also offer a gluten-free alternative to all their brownies. Included in our parcel was a little sample of these too and strangely I think we might have actually liked these even better!!
We want to say a big thanks to The Brownie Post for our delicious box of brownies. Turns out they came at just the right time - when both me and Bailey happened to be having really bad weeks. I discovered that a Brownie Post brownie is pretty much the only thing that can cheer you up in under two minutes after a crap day. I felt quite relieved when we chowed down on our last brownie on Saturday morning as by this point I was becoming a bit obsessed with them, finding myself thinking about them at random times in the middle of the day and not being able to concentrate on my work when they were in the same room as me! So despite my warning that they are a bit addictive, I really recommend The Brownie Post as a great way to bring a smile to the face of a friend, or just if you can't make it to Dishes and Spoons and need a brownie fix.
