Butterbing Flavour Frenzy
Time Out says
Feast on 50 different flavours of sandwich cookie at Welcome to Thornbury
Sandwiches are good, but cookie sandwiches are better. Especially when they’re available in 50 different flavours.
Melbourne-based sandwich cookie company Butterbing has been baking delectable cookie treats since 2014. What is a Butterbing you ask? It's a gluten-free brownie-like cookie sandwich, filled with flavoured cream or icing. Imagine a squidgy, cakey brownie. Now imagine it's frosted with a flavour like mint, peanut butter or vanilla bean, and you're about there on the flavour. They are rich, have the perfect balance of sweet and salty, and are damn delicious.
You find Butterbings in many Melbourne cafés, but for two precious hours on Sunday, September 15 you can score them direct. Butterbing is holding a pop-up bake sale at Welcome to Thornbury, and there will be a whopping 50 different flavours to try. Yes, FIFTY.
There will be classics like salted caramel, peanut butter, Nutella and vanilla bean, as well as limited-edition flavours like gingerbread house, rocky road and banoffee pie. This year Butterbing is even releasing a few nostalgic flavours inspired by milkbar favourites like musk sticks, blue heaven milkshakes and rainbow ice cream. Plus ten Butterbing flavours available are vegan, so everyone can get their cookie on.
The frenzy is happening from midday to 2pm on Sunday, September 15 at Welcome to Thornbury.
