There are some days where I just want to stay in, cuddle up on the couch, enjoy a nice warm treat and watch my favorite movies. I have the couch and movies, now all I need is a delicious treat!
Well, Shirley J has provided me with some delectable goodies in exchange for my honest opinion. Shirley J has made cooking easy since 1978, she sent me over 8 boxes of Shirley J Mugging and 4 mugs. When I figured out what Mugging was, I was so psyched, a nice warm tasty treat all in the comfort of your hand in a nice mug.
The flavors I received were:
- Chocolate Brownie Cake
- Gluten-Free Chocolate Brownie Cake
- Walnut Bread
- No-Pan Pancake
- Quiche in a Cup
- Pumpkin Spice Bread
- Old Fashioned Yellow Cake and Cobbler
- Country Style Cornbread
They all sounded so yummy, I couldn’t wait to try them! But what was so cool, they were extremely easy to make, most of them were delicious baked goods made in a mug in 90 seconds! What I tried first was the Chocolate Brownie Cake. I used 1 of the mugs that was sent over to me to make it. All I had to do was pour 1 packet of the Chocolate Brownie Cake into the 16 Oz. microwave safe mug. Then add 5 Tbsps of warm water. Next, mix vigorously with a fork or a small whisk for about 20-30 seconds or until it is nice and creamy and smooth. Then, I could add chocolate chips if I wanted to add a little more chocolate, but I didn’t have any. Lastly, just microwave it on high for 90 seconds. When it is done test the doness by putting in a fork or a toothpick into the center. If it comes out clean it’s done, if not pop it in for a few more seconds. When if was done it smelled so good.
The mug was hot so I let it cool for a bit. I finally tried it, and to my surprise it actually wasn’t that flavorful. I looked super chocolatey but it really wasn’t. I didn’t like it. I let my family try them. They didn’t like it much either, besides my daughter. She found it very good. My daughter liked the Shirley J Mugging so much she finished off mine. I decided to try Old Fashioned Cake and Cobbler. When I made it I thought there would be pieces of fruit in the mix to be cooked as well, because ya’ know, it’s cobbler. But there wasn’t it turned out to be just normal yellow cake, and it tasted a little better then the chocolate brownie cake. It still didn’t satisfy me. I then, took one more chance before my mind was set and used another one. I tried the Country Style Cornbread. I did not like this either.
I didn’t get the chance to try the other flavors. I wasn’t impressed by the first three, so I just skipped trying the others. Surprisingly, my daughter very much liked most of them. I thought it was a pretty cool idea, but the outcome of the product wasn’t very good. I mean it’s my opinion, I may not like it, but don’t make that stop you from trying it. Hey! My daughter likes them! On account of the mugs, I don’t use them for the Mugging, but I do use them for coffee. Very useful they are.
Disclosure I received products in exchange for an honest review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I personally believe will be good for my readers.
