Brownie Points: a Simply Divine Brownies Giveaway!

Brownies are a masterpiece of American cookery. This is not opinion--it's fact. They are--to sum it up concisely--a simply divine treat.

Oh--what a perfect time to introduce the treasure of Portland, Maine--Simply Divine Brownies. They boast a retail bake shop, and will ship their brownies nationwide.

And oh, the brownies. At Casa de CakeSpy, we'd been mildly obsessed with these brownies since having discovered the adorable brownies that look like cupcakes, with the other items on the menu--like dense, chewy brownies in a plethora of flavors and sizes--just adding to the obsession.

And now, dear, lucky readers, you too can share this sweet joy.

Yup: Simply Divine has kindly offered a brownie care package for giveaway on this site.

What can you win? A parcel of pure pleasure, including a sampler of 12 assorted brownie flavors, a package of sweet brownie bites (perfect for smaller appetites, or, you know, eating 3 at a time), and one of those adorable aforementioned trompe l'oeil brownies. Not for nothin', but based on my calculations this is a parcel worth over $75, considering shipping and stuff.

Yeah, you wanna win this.

So how do you enter? It's easy. Just answer the following important brownie questions below in the comments section and you'll be entered to win this sweet package of postal bliss! Of course, if you couldn't possibly wait for brownie bliss, you can mos' def check them out online here and check out their blog here!

Fine Print: The giveaway will close on Sunday, February 22 at 12pm PST; the winner will be announced within the next 48 hours. Entrants in the US only, please. Good luck!

  1. What's your type of brownie: chewy, cakey, or fudgy?
  2. Frosting on brownies: yes or no?
  3. Which brownies in the pan do you covet most: edge or middle?


We have a winner, friends! It is Pruittiporn from New Haven, CT, who has this to say about the above brownie poll:

1. I oscillate between fudgy and chewy.

2. No - I prefer my brownie add-ons baked in!

3. I prefer edge, but I'm not opposed to the middle either

1. chewy, so that the yummy goodness lasts a very long time and the calories get worked off with every chewy chomp
2. no frosting unless somehow in some unfathomable way the brownies were ruined or did not turn out just right, then fudge frosting will make anything OK
3. Edges are the best because then you get a little crispy at one corner with a little gooey at the opposite corner

1. What's your type of brownie: Fudgey!
2. Frosting on brownies: Either way is fine by me
3. Which brownies in the pan do you covet most: Any brownie is good brownie

February 21 | Unregistered CommenterMarisa (Good Good)

Fudgy, No, and the whole stinkin pan!

1. Ooey, gooey, chewy
2. Sometimes
3. One edge - no corners

February 21 | Unregistered CommenterLinda J-H

1. dense, fudgy brownies are the best
2. frosting, but not too thick!
3. definitely middle

February 21 | Unregistered Commenternobelle115

Definitely the chewier the better...usually without frosting, but more chocolate is always a good thing. And I love corner/edge pieces the most!

February 22 | Unregistered CommenterJenny

Fudgy, no frosting, & a piece from the middle!

February 22 | Unregistered CommenterSara-Cupcake

1. Chewy! Or fudgey. Cakey would have to be my last choice; but let's be honest, I'll take it if you've got it. And I'll enjoy it, too.
2. Nah. I prefer nuts.
3. Edge... No. Middle... No, edge... Actually, middle. ...Okay. All of it. I'll take all of it.

February 22 | Unregistered CommenterSatpreet

Definitely cakey!
No frosting!!!
The edges are the best! Deep crisp chocolate flavor

February 22 | Unregistered CommenterShani P.

1. dense, chewy
2. no frosting, but cool whip
3. The middle!

February 22 | Unregistered CommenterWhitney

1. Chewy! Yummm!
2. No way, brownies are too delicious on their own to spoil them with rich frosting.
3. The edge because you get some of the chewy center AND a nice crispy edge! :D

February 22 | Unregistered CommenterKaren S

1. Chewy!
2. Plain
3. Both! I like surprises!

February 23 | Unregistered CommenterHannah
