Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer: Phillips Candy House Review
Don't you just love when satisfying your sweet tooth becomes the "right thing to do?" Well, this week in Boston, it was!
Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer 2012 took place this week from May 7-13th. The cause is based on the premise that no one says no to dessert (really, who would say no to dessert?!) That’s why at Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer, desserts serve as the centerpiece of their mission to raise money for breast cancer research. Their dessert-centric breast cancer charity events, including Boston Bakes, feature the food of the greatest Chefs, Pastry Chefs and culinary artists. The non-profit organization has one goal: to end breast cancer in our lifetime.
In honor of Boston Bakes this week, Phillips Candy House, Boston's oldest chocolatier, sent me this special Chocolate Chip Brownie Cookie adorned with a chocolate pink ribbon that they were selling for the benefit of the cause. With 100 percent of the proceeds of the sale of the product going toward Breast Cancer awareness, I was psyched to check out the product in hopes that it's delicious flavor would encourage many fellow sweet-toothers to purchase it!
The cookie was sent in lovely, pretty-in-pink packaging, and although it was definitely chocolatey (no complaints there), it was a bit dry for my taste. Since it was supposed to be a brownie-based cookie, I was expecting a more gooey and fudgey consistency. The pink chocolate ribbon was made from white-chocolate and was definitely better than your standard white chocolate bar. As I tasted the ribbon, it had a buttery and melt-in-your-mouth feel that I really enjoyed. It was clear that the chocolate was homemade with tender love and care!
Many thanks to Phillips Candy House for sharing their heartfelt product with me! I am so honored to have been included in such a fantastic cause.
