Review: Fluff Bake Bar Fun With Treats | Comments
Cookies are more fun at Fluff Bake Bar, which offers a selection of classic cookies with an upgraded twist, plus staples you won’t find anywhere else.
Fluff’s other dessert options are just as good.
The Unicorn Bait cookie is one of my favorites. It’s a sugar cookie with birthday cake crumbs and topped with sprinkles. If I had to bet, I’d say it’s pretty enough and delicious enough to bring even a unicorn out of hiding.
The birthday cake crumb and amount of sprinkles really elevate this simple cookie. The cookie is soft and sweet. The times I bought this cookie, it didn’t last very long.
A cookie that you can only find at Fluff is The Couch Potato. It’s filled with potato chips, milk chocolate chips, pretzel sticks, cornflake crunch and mini marshmallows. Do you feel like a real couch potato after eating it? Yes. But is it worth it? Yes.
The combination of savory and sweet ingredients is really what made me love this cookie. It’s like filling your mouth with different snacks and all the different flavors end up working.
Whoopie Pie birthday cake almost became my favorite after trying it for the first time. It’s two birthday cake cookies sandwiched with vanilla buttercream. With the creaminess of the buttercream, the biscuits gain in sweetness.
Biting into it is a bit like eating a slice of Funfetti cake. So if you don’t have time for cake, this portable option is the perfect replacement.
Fluff’s SHO cookie is his version of an Oreo. It’s hard to compete with one of my lifelong favorites, but I really enjoyed Fluff’s version. The filling tasted quite similar to an Oreo but without all the preservatives. The chocolate cookie sandwiching filling reminded me of the cookie part of ice cream sandwiches.
Of Fluff’s selection of non-cookies, I love Cup|Cakes, which is Fluff’s idea of the next step in cupcake. It’s basically cake in a cup. I tried the Birthday Cake and Veruca Salt flavors.
The birthday cake is a Funfetti cake with chocolate buttercream, sprinkles and cake crumbs. As my fork went through the layers of the cup, it picked up a bit of all the ingredients. It’s really like a slice of cake in a cup, which makes it easy to store and portion size.
Veruca Salt is a devilish cake with salted caramel buttercream, pretzel crunch and crunchy chocolate pearls. As much as I love Funfetti Cake, this one ended up being my favorite of the two because of the salted caramel buttercream.
If you’re the type of person who eats cookie dough while you bake cookies, the Booty Call Brownie is worth a try. It’s a brownie topped with a chocolate chip cookie dough. The dough does not contain raw eggs.
Eating it is a lot like you might think – it’s like eating cookie dough on a brownie. What I didn’t know before was how well the two would complement each other. The batter makes the whole brownie sweeter, so I ended up sharing my brownie so it wouldn’t be too sweet.
What I like the most about Fluff is that there is always something new and different to try. Even if it’s something that’s been done, like a birthday cake, Fluff still puts his own spin on it.
