I ordered the pecan and salted caramel blondies for an office holiday gift. I had contacted Auzerais prior to ordering and got a response the same day, answering my question and letting me know that new offering s would become available in a few days. It was easy to order and my request was promptly filled and shipped. Since they were a holiday gift, I haven’t tasted them yet, but I’ll follow up when I get tasting details. This will definitely stay on my list for edible gift-giving!
I had the pleasure of enjoying the Pecan and Salted Caramel Blondies at a dinner party. The blend of salt and caramel had me closing my eyes as I chewed. I tried to eat them slowly. Sometimes sweets are "too sweet" for me. These Blondies are the perfect balance of sweet and flavor. This time I sent a box to a group of Chef friends who where doing a Popup at the James Beard House. I was so excited for them and very disappointed I wasn't able to make it. I had never had food delivered outside of the state and was a little nervous - will it get there on time. Everything with the deliver was fine, all the Chef enjoyed the treat. Several had hear about the Blondies but had not had the opportunity to taste them. It was a win - win.
Totally worth it! I don't remember where I saw the ad for Blondies, but because I am pecan and chocolate fiend, I was curious. The bigger obstacle to me ordering and pre-ordering at that, was the price coupled with I had never heard of this company. So, I took a chance. I was both excited and scared: would it be worth it, had I made a big mistake. Really, I had forgotten that I had ordered the cookie/cake. I was about to order a German chocolate cake for my birthday, when I received a notice that my Blondies had shipped. When I opened the box and removed the protective gold paper on the inside, I was blown away by the layer of pecans. The top of the cookie was completely covered by pecans, I could not see anything underneath them. I was so excited because I was not going to wonder id there would be enough pecans, at least one in every bite. I had died and gone to pecan heaven. I quickly cut a piece only to find that they were pre-cut. My slice was bigger! These blondies were the best I had ever had. They were fresh and almost melted in my mouth except for the pecans. It was definitely worth the price and wait. Thank you Thank You Thank you
I honestly don't remember any big challenges in purchasing! If you mean what would I say to someone on the fence about a PreOrder, I'd probably say "go for it."
The blondies are spectacular, not too sweet and a wonderful flavor. They were shipped, and arrived, as promised.
