Gu Brownies Salted Caramel (Sainsburys) By @Cinabar

Gu Brownies Salted Caramel

I know that the Gu desserts are a little bit pricey and a bit of a luxury item, but we do get them as an occasional treat. Spectre’s favourite is the Key Lime Pie variety, which seems to be seasonal and disappears in winter. My favourite, though, is obviously anything with chocolate.

I spotted these in Sainsbury's, and though 'salted caramel’ still seems to be living its best life, these do at least look a bit different as they are a brownie dessert. The packet says that you can have these hot or cold, but as a traditionalist, I went to try them straight from the fridge. The packet also says the entire packaging is recyclable, which is great. The lids are made of foil, which goes into recycling here, unlike a flimsy yoghurt pot lid.

I gave them a try, and first things first, look at all that caramel! What a fantastic layer of caramel! The flavour is sweet and rich, and the salt is mild but well balanced. Underneath that is the thick, moist Brownie section, which is wonderfully indulgent. It would feel heavy if there was more than a pot full, but with caramel, it was moist, and the portion was just right. What an absolute delight! These were the perfect Monday treat after work, and I’ll have to keep an eye out for any Christmas flavours that might be coming too.
