One thing to note is that Bakers Krate cannot accommodate allergies. Products in Bakers Krate may contain nuts, wheat, soy, dairy, eggs, and other common allergens. This warning is printed right on the outside of the box too. If you have food allergies, it's best to avoid this service.

Baker's Krate includes a product card, with "Best Before" dates and an ingredients list. I really appreciate that they stamped Best Before dates for each item. It helped me decide which treats to consume first! The little fork taped to the underside of the lid is a nice touch too, but I didn't find it necessary once I started digging in.

This month we are sampling treats from Winnipeg bakeries cake-ology and Goodies Bake Shop.

The treats are packed with a bit of crinkle paper and a cardboard divider. One of my cake balls was a bit damaged from being tossed around in transit, but nothing major. More packing paper might help keep the treats safe and secure.

Goodies Bake Shop Blueberry Crumble 
A juicy blueberry layer covered with a soft, crumbly topping.
There was something off about the taste of this one. The ingredients list shows that the crumble portion was made of margarine, which is probably what I was tasting. Margarine is the worst!

cake-ology Red Velvet Cakette
A drop of moist red velvet cake covered with white chocolate.
This was DELICIOUS! I'm glad it was only a bite and not an entire cake. I would have eaten the entire thing myself. 

cake-ology Vanilla Cakette 
A soft vanilla cake inside, coated with white chocolate.
This one was tasty too, but not as good as the Red Velvet. 

cake-ology Saskatoon Imperial Cookie
Two layers of shortbread sugar cookies sandwiched with Saskatoon jam and iced with royal icing.
The cookie portion was amazing. Best sugar cookie I've had in ages. The jam was overshadowed by the cookie and icing though.

cake-ology Raspberry Imperial Cookie 
Two shortbread sugar cookies sandwiched with raspberry jam and iced with royal icing.
 Same thoughts on this one. Cookie amazing. Jam was lost. My boyfriend and I actually couldn't even distinguish between the raspberry and the Saskatoon berry.

Goodies Bake Shop Chocolate Brownie Square
A soft brownie cake layer, generously coated with a layer of decadent milk chocolate.
It should be no surprise that this was the first treat I consumed and I was surprised to find this had a true chocolate frosting layer. The cake layer was moist and chocolatey. This was my favourite of the entire box.

The August Bakers Krate included six baked goods from two bakeries in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It's impossible to put a value on these items, but based on the box cost, it's $3.33 per item ($5 per item if you factor in shipping). I think it's a pretty fair value. By comparison, a local cafe down the street from me sells brownies and bars for $3-5 and cookies for $2-4. While I didn't enjoy every treat this month, I sure did enjoy unboxing and sampling everything. Bakers Krate is a great box and would make a wonderful gift for a sweet lover in your life.
