I enjoyed this yummy brownie, yesterday AND today, from a new sweets truck (another one!) that I discovered on my walk from the subway to the desk job. No, I don’t mean that I went back again today and bought a second brownie, I mean that I bought this single brownie yesterday and it took me two days to finish it. Hefty.
It was really yummy – it actually tastes a lot like my favorite Fanny & Jane brownie. Not to toot my own horn, but we do make a killer brownie.
(Side note: You probably don’t know that when Faryn and I originally decided to start a sweets biz, we were only going to make brownies, so they were the first recipe we ever perfected! We spent entire days baking all different kinds and we even had friends over for taste tests. We ended up choosing to venture beyond just the brownie because there are so many other sweets to love, but our classic fudge brownie will always have a warm (chocolatey) place in my heart as the treat that started it all.)
If I had to choose, I’d probably say that an ooey gooey fudgy brownie is my favorite sweet. Aack! I take it back! I hate to play favorites…
This is the new sweets truck that parks near my office. It’s called Street Sweets. They seem to have some savory stuff too, like quiche, and I’m hoping to try a few more of their cookie options once I burn off the calories from that massive brownie.
Update: I found out a bit more about this truck now that their website is up and running. It says, “To help keep things green, Street Sweets uses all natural ingredients, organic milk, raw sugar, and free-trade coffee beans from a sustainable rain forest that are precision-roasted locally. The truck itself uses bio-diesel fuel to reduce emissions.” I like that!
