Review: Fresh and Easy - Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Fresh and Easy's Pumpkin Spice Muffins were the last of the pumpkin-based baked goods that my local Fresh and Easy started selling this year.

A 14-ounce box of four sells for $3.99.

These are topped with some sort of streusel that adds a slight bit of differing mouth feel as well as some sweetness, but isn't crunchy.

There's no crustiness to the top of the muffins like you might have if you baked them fresh yourself.

In texture and taste, Fresh and Easy's Pumpkin Spice Muffins taste exactly like pumpkin bread to me. They have a balanced sweetness, a good amount of that light, slightly buttery pumpkin flavor and a soft, somewhat dense texture. The spice is there but plays second fiddle to the pumpkin.

Overall, I liked Fresh and Easy's Pumpkin Spice Muffins. Mostly because I like pumpkin bread, but also because they deliver on the pumpkin flavor without being overly sweet. I still like their Pumpkin Pie Cookies the best though.
