Expert's verdict:7/10

?The packaging delivers a just baked look and the brownies are well presented. The free from wheat message could have been bigger as it's one of the product's key selling points. This will appeal to the target market of consumers who are trying to avoid wheat-based products. I haven't tasted many 'free-from' products but felt this didn't quite deliver on the 'double choc' promise on the packaging. The brownie was crumbly and it left quite a bit of mess.

Consumer's verdict7/10

?The packaging wasn't eye catching but it gave a good view of what was inside. The brownie was fairly large and smelt chocolatey and appetising. But,when I ate it, the brownie was crumbly and dry. This is common with gluten-free food but I have eaten similar products that were easier to swallow. It tasted nice and not all gluten-free products do. At £1.49 it was cheaper than most gluten-free offerings. I would probably buy the brownies again.
