Melts in Your Mouth - Fresh and Easy Sweets Review

So I had had a satisfying dinner and needed dessert. Then I remembered that I hadn't opened up my latest Fresh & Easy box.

I was not disappointed. I have a new Hunk to enjoy on V-Day, some Swiss truffles that positively melt in your mouth and some kid-tested, mother-approved Snickerdoodles.

Onto the cookies. I don't make these but my mom does, so here's her review:
- Throughly cooked. Neither over- nor under-done
- Not overly sweet
- Quote "For a store bought cookie these are pretty good. I would buy these."

- Not much crinkle on top
- Needs more cinnamon. It should be evenly distributed over the surface of the cookie, not concentrated in the center.

Kid (that would be me) tested - cinnamon and sugar in a cookie. 'Nuf said. Crumbly, sweet, delicious. Now where's my cup of milk?

These would probably taste even better slightly warmed up in the microwave. The snickerdoodles are $2.59/8 count. Also, all natural so I don't have to worry about Josh eating them in the middle of the night.

Gourmet Swiss Truffles ($3.99/6.3 oz)
*happy sigh* Chocolate craving for the day satisified. O.K., maybe one more. The wrappers are mint and silver, denoting milk and dark chocolate. I'm a HUGE fan of dark chocolate these days, but the milk variety was just as delicious. Extremely smooth and I only needed one to satisfy my sweet tooth. That in itself is amazing.

One Huge Hunk $4.29/14.1 oz
I've had the Belgian Dark Hunk, and I can only eat one section of it at a time. The newest addition to the Hunk family (there's also a regular milk version) is a milk chocolate bar with candied pecans and fruit pieces. I may have to fight my mother for it. She saw "pecan" and her eyes lit up. I'll let you know how it goes.

  1. Girlie, could you please pop this in over at the Temple as well? Thank you. ;-)

  2. I was going to congratulate you on the new hunk in your life...until I realized what it was.

    I don't think I have ever had truffles. I need to fix that.

  3. Tyrone,
    I'll let you know when/if I have a new hunk. In the meantime, let me direct you to why women think chocolate is better than men =)

    You really should have a truffle some time. Lindt makes some good ones for store bought/widely available.

  4. An excuse to have some good chocolate? Sign me up. I'm usually not crazy about chocolate, but once in a while, it really satisfies the palate.

    I just read that list - there's a few on there I haven't heard before.

  5. @Tyrone - makes me wonder why men don't have similar lists for women. ;-)

  6. Ah, you must not have seen one of the many (thousands) of variations on Why beer is better than women.

    I can't co-sign to all of the points, but it's still pretty funny.
