Vermont Brownie Company takes pride in their one-of-a-kind brownie creations, offering eight specialty flavors, with options including dark chocolate chevre, espresso dulce de leche and apple blondies. All brownies are available for individual purchase. Putting a twist on the classic favorites, the company also has two sampler options, so that customers can try all of their unique offerings.

Although we love this vendor’s small-batch approach and original flavor combinations, they do have a somewhat small selection of brownie flavors and varieties, and do not offer brownies for those with allergies and other dietary restrictions.
Specialty Brownies: (Rating: 9/10)
All of Vermont Brownie Company’s small-batch, preservative-free brownies are baked from the finest ingredients. They always use local, farm-fresh ingredients from Vermont farms when possible. As for their chocolate, cocoa and other exotic ingredients? For these items, Vermont Brownie only uses premium ingredients from around the globe, like their imported Belgian chocolate and French cocoa powder.
The Vermont Brownie Company is very proud of their unique brownie formulations, and tries to present even the most traditional flavors in a new way. They offer seasonal goodies as well, with current Fall offerings including a maple toffee crunch brownie and an apple blondie.
Due to their small-nature, Vermont Brownie Company does not offer gluten-free, vegan, nut-free or sugar-free options at this time. The vendor currently only bakes their small-batch goodies in one kitchen, and are unable to guarantee no contact with nuts, wheat, eggs, milk and soy.

Who Would Enjoy Shopping Here?
This club is ideal for anyone on the hunt for the perfect gift. With their wide selection of gift options including individual sizes, larger boxed sets and samplers, as well as their customizable gift club, this vendor has something for every budget, occasion, holiday and event.
They do not currently offer brownies that are allergen-free, so individuals with special dietary restrictions will not want to try this bakery. Also, they do not offer a large variety of options, so those wishing to pick from a wide selection of flavors and formulations may not like this vendor.
What We Like
We love this Vermont-based bakery’s emphasis on small-batches, locally-sourced, fresh ingredients and unique, seasonal flavors and formulations. This company also offers excellent gift options that fit every price range, and their adorable packaging sets them apart. Another perk of the Vermont Brownie Company is their extremely customizable monthly gift program, which lets customers choose the combination that works best for them.
What We Don't Like
As previously mentioned, this Vermont-bakery does not offer gluten-free, vegan, sugar-free or nut-free options due to their small size and limited space. Although we love their artisanal-approach to baking their gourmet goodies, we also wish that they had a wider selection of brownie types and flavors. Another drawback of this bakery, is that they do not offer holiday-specific gift wrapping options, which is not ideal for those that want their purchase to have a specific holiday or event theme.
Staying true to their roots, the Vermont Brownie Company has kept the baking and production of their gourmet products and gift sets down-to-earth and local. This delightful bakery, with their 100% delicious guarantee and customizable gift club is certain to satisfy your sweet tooth.
