Cheesecake!

Good morning! How has your day been so far?

As you could have probably guessed by the title, today’s post is a review of Cheesecakes from Sweet Cheesus-and, needless to say, I was really excited to receive a parcel of cheesecake! (Because who wouldn’t be?) And it was in the post! (The post nearly always has me excited.) Here goes….

Branding:

I was really impressed with the branding. As you can see in the above image, they look good enough to eat! The colours co-ordinate, and overall, they have a very soothing aesthetic. They also have the logo, the ‘note’ they are handmade, although I am not really sure as to what the cow is supposed to denote. (Handmade, not gluten free, something or other?) And they are in their own glass box-so sophisticated!

Transportation:

This is a brand that seemingly has stockists in London, although I may be wrong about that. Anyway, I don’t live in London, so I was surprised that they arrived in one piece-the ice had not melted-and they kept their form.

Taste:

Oh cheesecake…You can’t go wrong, can you? Although I did detect a slight odour on opening, I enjoyed these greatly. The cheese could be a little firmer in its form, and I would have loved for an increased the biscuit layer, but all in all, I enjoyed these. And I am very grateful for having been given the chance to review them.

What do you think-would you try these cheesecakes?

Deliciously Guilt Free; Brownie and Blondie review.

Disclaimer: this was sent to me, at my request, in exchange for a review. What follows is my honest opinion. 

Hello.-

If there was a parcel that came through the post, you had no idea what it was, but found out it was four miniature Brownies, how excited would you be? (I had forgotten about this sample, and when it was coming, having misinterpreted an email.. As you can imagine, I was firstly surprised, and then excited to try.)

The package was about the size of my hand-just over-with four ‘treats’ inside:

  • Chocolate and Chia Brownie.
  • Salted Caramel and nut Brownie.
  • Chocolate and Walnut Brownie.
  • Browned butter peanut Blondie.

I have fond memories of visiting a New York based Starbucks, and stocking up on a Blondie and Brownie, or alternatively a cookie. Here’s what I thought:

Packaging:

I’m at odds as to what to think about the packaging. I liked that the Brownies and the Blondies were in the box, and all space utilised, but it had been a little bit bashed about in the post. They also came in a plastic bag, meaning that they were seemingly stuck together. I liked how there was no space wasted, but it may well have been to the detriment of the product itself.

Branding:

Love the name of this one: ‘Deliciously Guilt Free’. Finally a snack without shame attached! (Ever seen a brand that tots its latest product, but has the USP that it could make you increase weight, whether directly or indirectly? I have a problem with this. Anyway, I digress..) I loved the branding. We all want to ‘cut the carbs, not the taste’, right?

Taste:

Now, the taste I was a little bit conflicted about. The Brownies I received were a little bit stale-I think it was because they had spent too long in the post. (They were dry.) But I enjoyed the Chocolate and Walnut Brownie best of all. It was a perfect snack for a (very) long Netflix session. I wasn’t sure as to the Browned Peanut Butter Blondie, as it made me feel a little bit sick, but that may have been because I ate half the pack in one sitting.

This is a great business, and I feel that we should be supporting it. I rate my package 13/15, as I think that there are some things to be twigged, in order to become a staple snack.
