I’m always in the mood for store-bought or, better yet, fresh-made blueberry muffins.
Today, I’m going to review the Favorite Day Bakery – Blueberry Streusel Muffins.
I’ve had ALDI’s (Bake Shop Bakery) blueberry muffins as well as WALMART’s (Freshness Guaranteed) brand and enjoy both of those quite a bit. I’ll see if I can get around to doing a review on those ones in the future.
I rarely find a blueberry muffin I don’t like, so I didn’t feel like I’d be disappointed when I bought Target’s brand Favorite Day. I’ve never tried that brand and thought, Target is a tier above Walmart, so these should be a tier above the “Freshness Guaranteed” blueberry muffins that I like. Oh, how wrong I was!
The first bite I took was a disappointment, to say the least. It was the blandest blueberry muffin that I can remember ever having. Worse yet, it was dry with a bit of a chemical aftertaste.
Took a couple more bites, ya know, for good measure to see if it gets better, and instead, it gets even worse. WHERE’S the BLUEBERRIES!?!
The whole middle part is entirely void of blueberry goodness. This muffin tasted highly artificial, and the blueberries didn’t taste even remotely “real,” but still, where are they? Looking at the ingredients, it lists blueberries way down from the top.
I rarely EVER throw out food, but I shamefully have to admit I threw this away.
What a disappointment. Plus, the Favorite Day blueberry muffins are more expensive than both Aldi and Walmart brand muffins.
I don’t know if I got a bad batch or what, but I won’t be trying these again anytime soon.
To sum up, FAVORITE DAY BAKERY – Blueberry Streusel Muffins in a few words. Extraordinarily bland and artificial tasting.
Is Favorite Day a good brand?
I know they are Target’s exclusive sweet treats brand. They have many good-sounding sweets available. This is the first time trying anything from this brand, so I’ll have to give them a shot again with something else in the future.
