Somebody sent me baked goods.
I say ‘somebody’, what I actually mean is ‘some awesome people working with the six brothers behind Genesis Crafty‘.
In the above box of treats were:
- One packet of four cheese scones.
- One packet of mini sultana scones.
- One packet of six standard pancakes.
- One packet of chocolate chip pancakes.
First up, said package arrived at the office. Meaning the team wanted in. Obviously, being the kind-hearted chap that I am, I shared the wealth… on the proviso they agreed to writing mini-reviews of every bite.
Foolishly, I only thought of this condition after we’d opened the first and most appealing packet, the chocolate chip pancakes (they didn’t last long).
(seriously, this was breakfast and they were gone in a flash)
However, once I’d realised how famished the team were (and how much they enjoyed the first round) we made a pact to not open any more until our 10:30 coffee break.
AND THEN IT WAS 10:30 AND WE ATE LIKE KINGS AND QUEENS.
‘Toasting should be strongly advised. Dark chocolate chips were perfectly bitter-sweet, cutting through the comforting stodge of the pancake.’ – Will
‘Inferior to chocolate chip in every way. Would not eat again without toasting and adding maple syrup.’ – Will
‘Fluffy but with substance. Like an intellectual bunny rabbit.’ – Briony
‘They’re very slappable.’ – Anastasia
‘Satisfyingly cheesy, but a little dry. The food equivalent of the Graham Norton show. Without the glitter.’ – Briony
(Briony and Anastasia are inspecting.. something in the ingredients, I think)
All in all the baked goods from Genesis Crafty were mostly super yummy. They weren’t eaten with the best of accompaniments nor were they warmed up (as we think the pancakes should’ve been) but they were still quite excellent.
If anyone else would like me or my team to review any baked goods in future then please, by all means, get in touch.
Genesis Crafty baked goods are available pretty much everywhere you’d expect them to be.
Go get some.
