I recently had the opportunity to try a brownie from Sorelle, I was expecting something better having tried dozens of other brownies including vegan and non-vegan options. To save you some time if you don't want to read the whole review I cannot recommend this bakery based on the brownie alone being absolutely terrible in multiple ways. For the sake of disclosure, I am a baker, currently, I make brownies and other baked goods but my passion is brownies and the perfection of my product, as a result, I am always trying brownies.
The main reason I dislike the brownie from Sorelle was due to the flavor, it tasted like there was something burnt in it (likely chocolate? Perhaps melted chocolate chips?) and why is there molasses in it? Molasses does not fit into this brownie and removing it would improve the product tremendously because it destroys the flavor profile. The other issues with the brownie were the texture and the icing, I do not understand why their icing tastes the way it does, it tastes processed, slightly artificial and the only reason I can think it tastes like this is because they are adding something to it to stabilize the frosting for higher temperatures mixed with what I assume is an artificial vanilla if any vanilla was present.
The other issue with the brownie I tried was its texture, it was less like a fudgy brownie and more like a spongey boxed cake that rivals what I can buy for $1 at my local no frills. I also don't understand the reasoning behind putting edible pearls on the brownie, because the brownie itself is a sponge and the icing is so light the pearls are a drastically different texture and when you bite into one your brain is thrown off by the mixed textures creating a product that isn't particularly good.
I wouldn't recommend this bakery, after trying the brownie I have no intentions to try any of their other products. I had three other people try brownies with me and all of us were in agreement that this product was far below average and not something that we would be proud to produce.
