Ruth's Brownies Review and Giveaway

I'm pretty good with controlling myself on limiting most junk food I eat, but it's very hard for me to not eat chocolate. I just think of the delicious, sweet, creamy chocolate and I have to have some!! I find myself eating chocolate several times a week.

From the beginning, Ruth's Brownies, (and Cookie & Biscotti) Kitchen has been committed to baking the world's highest quality and best-tasting chocolate gourmet brownies, biscotti, cookies and cakes available anywhere in the world. We bake them for you, our customers, the most important people in the world. Named after Grandmother Ruth —and beginning with her recipes— we've created baked goods that have that memorable, delicious homemade taste we remember from our childhoods.

I am a huge fan of brownies. Nothing is better than a fantastic, fresh from the oven brownie. A glass of milk with it wouldn't hurt either.

Ruth's Brownies sent me 6 very large peanut butter swirl extra fudgy brownies.


MMMM, don't these look simply amazing?! Okay, wipe the drool from your screen and read on. From the moment I opened the package I could smell the aroma of the peanut butter and the chocolate emanating from the box. I couldn't wait to dig in! I had a bite and it was simply heaven, that's basically the only way to describe it. Chocolate and peanut butter have a magical combination and when paired together, it's beyond good. The brownie was moist, soft, and perfectly fresh. It was hands down, the best brownie I've ever tasted in my life.

The chocolate fudge was rich and sweet and delicious. The peanut butter was extremely fresh too. Ruth's is a company that is truly dedicated to producting delicious baked goods. I had to stop myself from eating too much of the brownie even though it's one regret that would be okay by me! These brownies would make an excellent gift or upcoming holiday dessert! I look forward to enjoying these brownies :)
