You know those baked goods you see at every deli in New York, the ones either wrapped in plastic or in a small plastic bag? They're the ones with minimal, homespun packaging. I have spent years trying every one of these suckers, because I figure one of them has to be really good. Well, I finally found one worth the calories, Zaro's Fudgy Wudgy Brownie. It's a dense four inch square, and it's aptly named. This is your basic, supermoist, very chocolaty, fudgy brownie. It is blessedly unsweet.
Here's the clincher. In most of these baked goods the ingredient list is a horror show, a food science experiment gone woefully wrong. Here are the ingredients for the Fudgy Wudgy Brownie:
Chocolate, Butter, Eggs, Flour, & Salt. No knowledge of organic or inorganic chemistry required to understand these, is there.
The Zaro's Fudgy Wudgy Brownie costs $2.75 at my local deli, but it's easily big enough and rich enough to share.
