Notice of Changes

You will notice that some of my albums are "empty" on my Facebook page and that some pages and pictures are missing on here and on Fibro, Fit and Fab!. Don't worry - they won't stay that way. :) In light of some recent events, I've had to watermark my photos and designed images. Until that is done and I get a chance to upload them, my FREE Fibro Banners and Badges and Inspirational Designs {By Me} pages will be down on Fibro, Fit and Fab!, and the albums under the same (or almost the same) names on my Facebook page will be empty, and pictures will be deleted and watermarked at various times for as long as it takes to get that done. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. Thank you for understanding! In the mean time, if there is an image you would like that you saw or have an idea for a new one, feel free to email me or leave me a comment, and I'll do what I can to get one to you. :)

{Product Review} Enjoy Life Foods Review Day 3 - Brownie Mix (Top 8 Free, Non-GMO, Vegan)



I was recently contacted by Enjoy Life Foods about doing some some product reviews for them*, and I quickly agreed to do so.  We LOVE Enjoy Life products in this house, and I hope these reviews (3 days' worth - 1 day per product) will show you why. 

Enjoy Life sent me 3 products to review (pictured above): Sea Salt Plentils, Not Nuts! Seed and Fruit Mix: Beach Bash, and Brownie Mix.  

To read my review on the Sea Salt Plentils, go here.

Now for my review on their Brownie Mix! 


Let's take a look at the packaging.


As with the other products they sent, I liked the packaging.  It was appealing, easy to see what it was, what it was free of, etc.  They really do an amazing job with packaging on all of their products.  Another A+.


Let's take a closer look at the product.
 

All you had to add to the product was water and oil.  You could choose to grease and flour the pan with a "safe for you" flour or use parchment.  I opted for parchment.  It baked up great, and was super easy to prepare.



They make only an 8x8 pan size, and you cook them for 30 to 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted 2 inches from the side of the pan comes out almost clean.  We opted for the 30 minutes, and the brownies turned out more fudgy - just the way we like them!   We cut them into 16 pieces to get the idea of what their serving size idea is (it says the mix makes 14 brownies), which is small but tall.
 
All in all, the brownies looked and smelled AMAZING, but we were disappointed that the mix didn't make bigger brownies.  I'd still give them an A, though, especially because the product was developed with probiotics and contained 5g of protein per serving.  Very awesome.

What do they taste like?


These taste AMAZING!  Rich, fudgy, decadent, more dark chocolate or bittersweet in flavor - the perfect brownie for us!  My husband thought they were a little drier than a normal brownie, but that did not distract from the yummy factor at all.  These were instantly the favorite.  Once we tried them, we were ok that the portion size was a little smaller because they were so rich, too.  I give them an A+ on this mix.


Can I find the Brownie Mix in other flavors?
Not at this time, but they do have other baking mixes (all-purpose flour, pizza crust, muffin mix, and pancake and waffle mix) that you can check out here.  All of there baking mixes are top 8 free, non-GMO, and vegan.  Such an awesome thing!


What does the brownie mix cost?
The brownie mix costs about $8.50 a box on their website.  Again, the price isn't too bad for a mix that tastes amazing, is a top 8 free, non-GMO, and vegan, and that works for a lot of different diets and needsSome people will find the price tag a bit much, but you can find coupons for them at times, and they do go on sale.  Others of you will find this price a real bargain, so let's give it a B for cost.

The verdict?
Enjoy Life Foods' Brownie Mix is a winner!  If you're looking for a really amazing brownie mix that is TOP 8 FREE, VEGAN, and NON-GMO, this is for youYou won't even know they aren't "normal" brownies, I promise!

How Can I Find Out More?
So glad you asked! You can find out more at the following locations:
