First look

The product card lists details about each item as well as "best before" dates. My box arrived at the post office on January 22nd and all the best before date this months are into the first week of February. Generally you will have a two week window to consume all your treats. Along with the product card, Bakers Krate also includes a details ingredients list for each items.

Desserts Plus Peanut Butter Cherry
The perfect blend of chocolate, cherry & peanut butter all rolled up into a ball! A truly delightful treat for all ages!
This was very rich but very tasty.

Goodies Bake Shop Chocolate Chunk Cookie
Who didn't love chocolate chip cookies as a kid? Rich chocolate chips & fresh baked cookie dough make this classic an instant hit. 
I enjoyed this one. It's classic cookie, with big chocolate chunks inside, then drizzled with chocolate on top. It's thin and chewy, which is exactly how I like my chocolate chip cookies.

Goodies Bake Shop Florentine Bars
A delicious indulgent treat! The colorful mixture of fruit and nuts makes for a festive presentation atop rich shortbread.
I'm not really a fan of shortbread but this was tasty. I liked the slivered almonds on top. The slice is huge though so I couldn't finish it in one go.

Goodies Bake Shop Classic Date Square
There's something very satisfying about a good date square. Delicious pureed dates sandwiched between two layers of buttery oatmeal crumb crust.
I didn't really like this one. The date puree was way too sweet and the oatmeal crust way too dry.

Cake-ology Marble Mocha Cake Jar
A great way to start 2016! A marble cake base layered with a delightful mocha icing with a hing of coffee!
I don't think cake jars are meant to be mailed and tossed around in a box. Mine was completely mangled on delivery and was unrecognizable as a layered cake. How it looks on that little plate in the picture is pretty well how it looked in the jar. As for taste, the mocha icing was good, but the cake was very dry. The best before date is listed as February 3, but as of January 26 it was inedible.

The January Bakers Krate included five different baked goods from bakeries in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Two of the items were misses for me this month, but the cookie and Peanut Butter Cherries were delicious.
