The Beeston Brownie Company - Nottingham.

A couple of days ago, I received an exciting package through the post containing these little bad boys.
A variety of eight individually packaged home baked brownies from The Beeston Brownie Company.

The Beeston Brownie Co. use only the finest ingredients in their creations to ensure the highest possible quality at all times. Their Belgian Chocolate contains no less than 70% cocoa creating a deliciously rich taste.
With a range of over 10 flavours - there's something for everyone. Plus, they're more than happy to cater for dietary requirements meaning that nobody gets left out - yay!
I felt so lucky to be sent 8 different flavours from the range and I couldn't wait to get stuck in! 

Once ordered via the online shop, their talented bakers get to work creating these masterpieces and are sent through the post 1st class. This is to ensure the brownies are as fresh as physically possible when they arrive at your door. 

I sampled all flavours along with Ashlea, splitting into two halves.
I'm just going to say to begin with that all of these brownies were amazing quality. They had a slight crunch on the outside and a moist, chewy inside. In my eyes, that's exactly how a brownie should be!

I'll start at 12 o'clock and work my way clockwise - First up were these:

I'm not a huge fan of nuts with chocolate but I wanted to give all of the brownies a go, so got straight to it.
To begin, there was no real flavour, the after taste is where it's all at. The taste really reminded me of a Bakewell Tart and for Ashlea, Amaretto. Wasn't expecting to like this flavour but I really enjoyed it.

Wow! Amazing creamy taste of the Oreo biscuits and they visually look great on the brownie's topping.
The biscuits don't remain crunchy unfortunately, but I'm guessing that happens during the baking process. Still, an amazing brownie nevertheless.

Salted Caramel
I thought this brownie looked great. You can see the little valleys filled with the salted caramel. The sweet and salty craze is a big thumbs up for me so absolutely loved this one.
It wasn't too salty, but there's always a subtle hint.

Chocolate Orange
The orange flavour comes through instantly and tastes just like a good old Terry's Chocolate Orange. I was so pleased that the orange flavour didn't taste artificial - I hate that. For some reason, this brownie was slightly dryer than the others but didn't effect the flavour in any way. It was just a little crumblier.

Rocky Road
Out of all of the flavours, I'm sad to say that this one was the most disappointing. It certainly looks great from the outside having the components of a rocky road placed on top but it just lacked flavour really. Sad face.

Peanut Butter
I'm not a fan of PB at all. Ashlea is though, so I've relied on him for this part of the write up. This brownie was really nice as the peanut butter didn't overpower the whole thing. A great balance of chocolate with that subtle nutty hint.

White Chocolate Chip
Stop everything. This is my favourite flavour and possibly one of the best brownies I've ever had. There's so much white, creamy chocolate rippled throughout. I don't know what else to say other than that I'm in love.

Last but not least, walnut. A nice simple nut filled brownie. The nuts add a great crunch and there's a strong flavour throughout. Can imagine this would go great with a fresh cup of coffee.

Overall, I was very impressed with the range of Brownies that The Beeston Brownie Company produce. I think they're amazing and would definitely purchase some more.
A variety box like mine will set you back £12.95 which works out at around £1.60 per brownie.
Some may find this quite pricey for a little square of cake as yes, there are others that you can get which are larger and cost considerably less.
However, I think this price is perfectly acceptable and would pay this myself when you consider the fact that they are home baked and locally produced.

Keep your eyes peeled at food festivals over the upcoming months, The Beeston Brownie Company are set to attend Ilkeston Food Festival, Beeston Farms Market and Trinity Square Market in Nottingham.

Thanks for the brownies guys & thanks for reading.



  1. I tried these a couple of weeks ago and I agree, the brownies were delicious but I could distinguish between the flavours I'd picked! I bought them from their stall at the Trinity Market in Nottingham and the bags weren't labelled. I chose salted caramel, nutella and plain but me and my family couldn't tell the different between them all. I'm hopeful it was just a one off though because the brownies were delicious! I'm definitely going back for more!

    1. Oh no - I hope that was a one off - all of mine came in individually labelled packets so I knew exactly what was what! I loved them :)
