Welcome to Alvarado

Population: DELICIOUS.

It's always a cause of polite celebration, here in the Buffalo Brownies lab, when one of our creations is let loose upon an unwitting public. It's like the film 'Outbreak', only fewer monkeys. And less global-killer virus. Okay, it's nothing like the film 'Outbreak'. Anyway, as we pop the cork on the supermarket-own economy cava provided by Management and fill our beakers to the brim (they're not very large beakers, barely more than a pipette, to be fair), we take a moment to reflect upon the development of the new flavour.

Alvarado, whose name reflects an historically interesting town in California, is our beetroot brownie. An early version of the recipe saw us adding a beetroot jelly (much like the apple jelly found in our beloved Eve) into the Pure batter. Caster sugar and a mere 70% cocoa solids in the chocolate didn't *quite* offer the right contrast of dark bitterness to complement the earthy sweetness of the beetroot, so we turned instead to the darker sugar and chocolate employed in the sophisticated Connoisseur; little tweaks to the rich, ruddy beetroot juice content (and a swap from beetroot jelly to cubes of beetroot proper) gave us the finished product you can now see on The Range: Alvarado.

Like our previous seasonal specials, Alvarado is only available for a limited period so don't miss out.

As ever, if you like what you see (eat) but think you have an idea about how to make it even better, don't hesitate to contact Management on discovery@buffalobrownies.com and they'll pass your feedback along to us.

We love a challenge.

Until next time...

  • Post-Atomic haze

    Oh dear God what do you people do in that kitchen?

    Just got my first order, and am sitting sprawled in a post-Atomic haze, barely able to type.

    Not only are they some of the best blondies I've ever had (oh, and they go great with a beer, by the way) but they came right through my letterbox less than two days after I ordered. Perfection!

  • Fabulous service!

    Best online customer service I've ever received. I managed to fowl up the online form; through email, by the next evening I had managed to correct my order, add the gift messaging I wanted and had a second order I'd made seperately confirmed. I was even asked when I'd like the orders to go out. Brilliant service, and the people I bought these for absolutely loved their brownies!! I am so glad I discovered you guys at SB Farmer's market :)
