Warning, this is a picture heavy post because of all the delicious treats! Do not read on an empty stomach!
I was invited to the kick off party for the Nestle Crunch 75th Birthday Showdown (that’s a mouthful isn’t it?).
I wasn’t too sure what to expect, but I did know that I would be tasting some desert items that were made with Nestle Crunch bars.
I got to the party when it started at 1pm.
As soon as I walked in, I saw Lynn from The Actor’s Diet and Jennie from Garlic My Soul. I was nice to see familiar faces especially since the bakery the event was being held at (Sweet E’s) was extremely crowded and at first it seemed a bit disorganized.
We got to check out the samples of all the different treats that we available to try.
A Crunch Peanut Butter Brownie from Sweet E’s.
A Crunch Chocolate Royalty Cupcake from Casey’s Cupcakes.
A Candied Bacon Ice Cream Cookie from CoolHaus.
And a Crumbs Crunch Cupcake from Crumbs Bake Shop.
While we were checking out the awesome desserts, we had no idea if we were allowed to try them yet. So Lynn decided to be the brave one and took one off a plate.
After we were there for about an hour, there was a little presentation with all the bakers, and they each explained their desserts.
Then, finally, we got to try some!
I tried a little bit of each one, but those cupcakes were huge! My favorite was the ice cream. The candied bacon in it was delicious!
As we were leaving, we all got a gift bag.
Inside were samples of all the desserts we tried (except the ice cream which I got a gift card for). All the cupcakes are now in my freezer for when I have a sugar craving (although I promised to save some for my mom too).
If you want to check out all the desserts in the showdown, you can go here. There is voting for your favorite dessert until April 21st. The top three bakeries will compete in a final baking competition to declare the winner! If you want to try some of the desserts, all the bakeries competing in the contest are giving away samples of their entries (I highly encourage trying some of them).
I’m so excited that I got to attend this event, but I’m still on a bit of a sugar high from all the delicious treats!
