Brownie Selections and Varieties: (Rating: 9/10)
Sugardaddy’s quintessential edgeless brownies are available in three variations: brunettes, blondes and gluten-free varieties.
The brunettes are classic, chocolate brownies, available in nine unique flavors. Some of these include American Beauty (double chocolate with peanut butter and peanuts), Celebration Brunette (frosted with buttercream and sprinkles) and Rich Mint Brunette (double chocolate and double layers with mint butter icing in the middle).
Similar to their brunettes, Sugardaddy’s blondes (blondie-style brownies) are anything but traditional. With eight options available, some of the original flavors for their blondes include: Campfire Blonde (graham cracker brownies sandwiching chocolate and marshmallow gooey goodness) and Chai Spiced Blonde (nine spice chai tea mixed with pistachios and citrus zest).
Sugardaddy’s gluten-free brownies are available in eight different flavors, five brunette and three blonde. Flavors include their Drunken Chunky (a chocolate chunk blonde) and Dark Berry (double chocolate brunette with triple raspberry puree swirl).
This vendor’s one-of-a-kind brownie creations are available for purchase individually or in samplers including: gift boxes, see-through towers and silk gift bag towers. Sugardaddy’s also offers the purchase of brownie bites.
In addition to their brownies, Sugardaddy’s also carries a variety of biscotti and truffle products. Their brownie truffles are available for purchase in favor bags of three or in boxed sets of a dozen. Their delicious brownie biscotti comes in packs of five or in an adorable biscotti and coffee gift set.
Sugardaddy’s does not carry traditional-style brownies with edges. They also do not offer many traditional formulations of brownies, so this club may not be the best for individuals that don’t want to sample their unique creations.
Specialty Brownies: (Rating: 10/10)
All of Sugardaddy’s unique, edgeless brownies are crafted from premium ingredients, baked in small batches and hand-cut round. All varieties are baked with natural ingredients like the finest Belgian chocolate, farm-fresh eggs and butter from local Ohio farms and exotic vanillas and spices from around the world.
Every batch of Sugardaddy’s brownies are baked to order, for each day’s specific selling needs. They never bake mass batches or freeze items for later shipment. Their gluten-free brownies are baked in a completely separate facility, free of dairy, eggs, fish, shellfish, gluten, peanuts, soy and other allergens, ensuring there is no contamination.
As previously discussed, Sugardaddy’s brownie formulations are not your run-of-the-mill treats. Although they offer many traditional flavors like walnut, caramel, peanut butter and plain chocolate they are uniquely presented and mixed for a one-of-a-kind experience. They also offer seasonal treats, like their Fall special, a Harvest Blonde, described as “pumpkin pie in a Sugardaddy’s blonde.” Sugardaddy’s also incorporates exotic ingredients from around the globe into their creations. This global-influence can be seen in offerings like their Fiery Brunette, a gourmet brownie including chocolate, chipotle and cinnamon, a formulation dating back to the Aztecs!
Although they do not explicitly market a vegan brownie, all of their gluten-free brownies are created in a dairy-free environment, and may meet the dietary needs of vegan customers.
Club Membership Option: (Rating: 0/10)
Due to their small, by-the-batch approach to baking, Sugardaddy’s does not offer a club membership at this time. Although this is a perk we would like to see, they do offer a nice selection of samplers and gift options that help make up for this drawback.
Pricing: (Rating: 9/10)
All of Sugardaddy’s brunettes and blondes are available for single purchase for $4.75. Their gluten-free formulations are available starting at $5.50. These are fair prices for quality products, however, they are slightly higher in price than other individual brownies we have seen.

Customer Service: (Rating: 8/10)
Sugardaddy’s easy-to-use website makes ordering a breeze. The vendor accepts all major credit cards. Their user-friendly website also has a thorough FAQs section, which should assist in explaining shipping, ordering and other common inquiries. Sugardaddy’s also has an email through which customers can submit questions or concerns.
If online shopping isn’t your thing, Sugardaddy’s also has a toll-free number for customer service inquiries or orders, available Monday through Friday 10:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. They do not currently have a 24-hour hotline.

What We Like
We like that Sugardaddy’s offers an original approach to brownie-making with their edgeless brownies, setting them apart from other brownie bakeries. They also carry more exciting flavor combinations than other vendors, and use unique ingredients sourced from around the world. Another perk that stands out is Sugardaddy’s dedication to providing delicious gluten-free brownies from a completely allergen-free facility.
What We Don’t Like
A benefit as well as a drawback, we do not like that Sugardaddy’s does not carry traditional brownies with edges. Another disadvantage of this vendor is that they do not currently offer a brownie of the month club, which is a perk we would love to enjoy.
This local Ohio bakery is dedicated to crafting the finest, made-to-order brownies around. Priding themselves on making the brownie a luxurious gourmet food, Sugardaddy’s is a must-try for the lover of truly decadent treats like theirs.
