If you’ve been shunning the bakery section of your supermarket for a while, you may not be up on the “two-bite” phenomena. Basically, “two-bite” is brand for an assortment of deserts that come in clear tubs. I’m not sure why they are named “two-bite”, since they are more correctly called “byte-sized”, and if you try to eat them in two bites you get crumbs all over.
I’m a fan of both the brownies and the scones.
Last week I needed to pick some snacks for the meeting, and came across a new “two-bite” produce – a brookie, a combination of a brownie and a chocolate-chip cookie. Sounds great, right?
Yes it does. In fact, it sounds better than it is.
The first problem is the cookie. The essence of a chocolate-chip cookie is something that spreads out, is a bit crunchy and still a bit soft. What you get is a cookie-cake, which everybody knows is not as good as a cookie. The brownie also suffers – it’s dry rather than full of creamy and chocolatey goodness.
