Dylan: Hit the spot

Michael Myers. Freddy Krueger. Jason Voorhees. Ghostface.
All fear-instilling figures. All the stuff of nightmares.
After opening the Insomnia Cookies’ box, I could add another name to that list — the Glampire Loaded Brownie.
One glance, and I, too would be having nightmares.
Gazing at the brownie before me, I was extremely overwhelmed.
It was nearly impossible to see the brownie beneath the thick layer of red icing and several varieties of sprinkles.
My first reaction to the Glampire Loaded Brownie?
Why does it look so much like meatloaf?
It evoked memories of old family dinners, resembling a ketchup-slathered slice of the brown rectangular supper staple.
Those initial thoughts of loafed meat made me hesitant to sink my teeth into the Glampire Brownie.
But how could I reflect on the dessert if I wouldn’t taste it?

My first bite was a pleasant surprise.
First — frosting.
Almost pints of frosting, rich and strong.
That, mixed with the moist brownie, made for a powerful flavor combination.
The assortment of spooky sprinkles topping the brownie only added to the tastiness.
While I would never have imagined eating a brownie with bone-shaped sprinkles, they breathed more life into the brownie.
I quickly overcame my initial fear of the Glampire Loaded Brownie. It was true to its name loaded — with great flavor.
Sure it may have looked questionable at first, but after tasting the treat, what I once found off-putting, I now found amusing.
Such deliciousness didn’t come without a scary price, though.
$5.25 per Glampire Loaded Brownie.
Although the brownie’s price is a bit steep, it is worth it.
The Glampire Loaded Brownie may haunt your dreams at first glance, but it is truly a shapeshifter, quickly vanquished with bite after delicious bite.
