Are you hungry?
Vermont Brownie Company was founded eight years ago in Shelburne by Shawna Lidsky. Last year Vermont Teddy Bear acquired the sweet business and together they make a great pair.
What makes a Vermont Brownie so unique? They are are preservative free and made from all natural ingredients. They are using local ingredients from King Arthur Flour, Cabot Creamery, Vermont Creamery, and more (including Vermont maple syrup!).
The Gourmet Six Pack Sampler (shown above) is their current best seller. They sent me a sampler which I was more than happy to taste test.
I will start by saying that I loved, honestly LOVED, every single flavor. It is recommended that you microwave the brownie for 15 seconds before eating. Each was moist, rich, and melted in my mouth. The Signature brownie is their original brownie… the one that started it all. The Vermont Brownie website lists this brownie as “A.K.A. Chocolate ecstasy”. True.
I shared the Peanut Butter Brownie (above) with my children and here are their thoughts:
“Gooey, awesome, really good taste, I love it.” (My son, age 7.)
“Can’t complain about this!” (My diva daughter, age 4.)
I agree! This brownie is a bit of a sandwich with a thick layer of peanut butter. The classic combination of sweet with salty is perfect!
You must try the Dark Chocolate Chevre Brownie, which beat famed celebrity chef Bobby Flay in a brownie baking challenge. This brownie is both sweet and savory with the addition of local chevre (goat cheese). After finishing this brownie myself (so fast I didn’t take a photo) I sat back to appreciate its complexity.
Everyone in my family loves walnuts in their brownies. My parents are known to complain if someone leaves out the nuts. These brownies are for nut lovers!! The name “Walnut Chunk” is quite an accurate name. You will not find small chopped up nuts, you will find large crunchy walnuts and walnut pieces in each bite.
The amazing brownie flavors don’t stop there (which is why the Gourmet Samplers are the perfect gift!). The Maple Toffee Crunch has a layer of maple candy that is out of this world. Regrettably I let my husband have this brownie, though I insisted on a taste. He is the family’s maple fan and and loved each bite. He suggest adding a scoop of Vermont ice cream on top.
