    I wanted to like this. It was easy to make and came out great. The problem I had was the after taste. I'm used to sugar subs so I was surprised when I couldn't eat it. Thought maybe it was just the brownies so I tried the orange cranberry muffin mix and the same thing happened. So I'm afraid I won't be buying this again.

    I thought these were horrible. That have a bad aftertaste and their texture is no where close to real brownies. I will not be buying these again.

    The amount of artificial sweetener in these is overwhelming. I finished one 15 minutes ago (plain) and I can still taste the sweetener on my lips. And the artificial aftertaste goes on and on. Notice that one packet (of two in the package you buy) makes 29 brownies -- you might want to halve this, if you do it at all. Also notice that the nutrition count does not include the 1/4 pound of butter, 1/3 cup heavy cream, 2 eggs, and 2 ounces of chocolate you have to add. They are consequently much more caloric than you might think at a glance. The first bite is good, but these have a horrible, horrible aftertaste. On three occasions, I ate something else afterward, even though I wasn't hungry, just to get rid of the aftertaste. The rest of the batch just went into the garbage.

    OK, so maybe it's just that I remember too well what real brownies taste like. I can't imagine anyone would mistake these for real brownies. The look and texture is there but the taste is not! Maybe I should have added Splenda like some suggest. The taste and lingering aftertaste were not good. They have a heavy dark chocolate/ artificial flavor.

    Very disappointing. A very strong after taste. We ended up throwing them in the trash. We were also disappointed that we had to make a trip to the store to buy chocolate!
