Review: Taco Bell - Brownie Sandwich

Taco Bell's new Brownie Sandwich replaces the Cookie Sandwich and comes with two triangular-shaped brownies with a fudge creme filling between them.

I picked one up for $1.29.

The whole idea here is to provide customers with a chocolaty option on the dessert menu. Unlike the Cookie Sandwich, these don't seem to come to you warm and are at room temperature. I'm not sure if they'll warm it up for you.

The brownies were on the fluffy side for brownies and veered towards cake territory. They had a nice moistness to them and a decent chocolate flavor. I only caught one or two of the mini chocolate chips shown on the promo photos.

The filling is fairly sweet and reminds me of a whipped chocolate cake frosting. It's soft enough that you could easily use it as a dip.

Overall, the Brownie Sandwich provides a nice bit of chocolaty goodness on Taco Bell's dessert menu. Between it and the Cookie Sandwich, I could go either way depending on what I feel like eating.

  1. I thought the filling was gross, much like the chocolate chip cookie. I just peeled it off (that's right, it peels off) and ate the cookies.

  2. I think I would prefer the vanilla creme filling that was on the Cookie Sandwich with this brownie sandwich as opposed to chocolate filling with chocolate brownies.

  4. Were Cookie Sandwiches supposed to be served warm? Because every one I ever got was served at room temperature (except for one that I received nearly frozen once).

  5. Hm, I guess not. It would be nice though. A bit closer to a fresh-baked feel.

  6. I tried the regular cookie sandwich but didnt like it due to its sweetness. This one hopefully isn't as super duper sweet

  7. I've had both the regular cookie sandwich and this new brownie version and this brownie version is somewhat better, but the filling is still not quite right. For all it's sweetness, it's not really tasty to me. But people who like chocolate frosting will probably like this.

  8. I tried it once, and it was frozen. Warm (or even room temperature) would have been a big improvement.
