BUCKY'S : Better Than Your Usual Brownies

Let me first tell you what Bucky's is NOT : it is NOT a BROWNIE. Let me just make that clear because they make a lot of emphasis to recapitulate this point. So the biggest question is, "What IS IT? This is one tricky question and master baker Miguel Vargas, the genius behind it, wittingly describes it as a cross between a flourless chocolate cake and a fudge brownie. 

Let me quote, " ...If a flourless chocolate cake and a fudge brownie made some babies, it would be called a bucky." 

Good things come in simple packages : Each Bucky comes in this brown box tied with a colored string (I assume this red and green strings are for the coming Chritsmas season!) complete with a sticker of what is inside and when it was baked to ensure freshness.  Each box comes with two - 6 cm x 18 cm x 4.5 cm slabs of chocolate.

 The baked goods come all wrapped up in paper and this locally made wooden spatula made from Baler which is used to eat and divide the luscious slab.

I sampled three different variants : The Original, Buckies and Cream and Super Buckies.

Chocolate + Seasalt
Php 300.00 / box
Bucky's at its purest form: immensely rich dark massive slab of chocolate sprinkled with coarse sea salt crystals on top. The wondrous dance of 2 contrasting flavors "sweet and salty" certainly creates an enchanting tango in the mouth. There is that evident taste of dark rich cacao giving it that slightly bittersweet after taste which I prefer over just plain sweet flavor. These luscious slabs spent just the right amount of time in the oven to rise and bake producing that nice gooey and fudgy (but not cake-y) texture that makes it deliciously chewy. One bite will surely lead to another and another and another. Highly addicting (beware!).

Php 400.00 / box
They call it Oreo on steroids! Now how can you go wrong with that? Layers of sweet cream filling in between the chocolate slabs. A tad bit too sweet for my taste but my kids enjoyed this the most (probably because they've had a long time love affair with Oreos!). They licked the cream with the chocolate with so much gusto on each bite!

Gluten free flour + Coconut Sugar + Chia Seeds 
Php 600.00 / box
Last but certainly not the least is this. Make way for SUUUUPER BUCKIES!This version is the healhier and less guilty one (it's paleo approved as well!). A little heavier and a bit more dense and compact than the other two. It's made with chia seeds, gluten free and coconut sugar. Ingredients that are music to the ears of yogis, health and wellness enthusiast or anything who is watching their weight but still know how to live a sweet life! As for me, they had me at chia because these super seeds are a big part of my daily intake. I have to admit it really is a brownie SUPERFIED! 

Note : Best enjoyed within a week after delivery & kept refrigerated to ensure freshness.

I suggest you keep this information handy especially this holiday season or heck any time of the year (who am I kidding?).
