Verdict: Not as scrummy as they sound
The muffins look lovely. They are HUGE with a big golden brown 'Muffin Top' and a soft squidgy base. There aren't many cracks on the top of the muffin which immediately suggests that it's quite dense.
They smelt mildly of maple syrup but nothing too tempting. The surface was fairly dry and smooth; not sticky as I was expecting.
Next, the 'carame fudge peices'? I was expecting the chewy little fudge bits but there were NONE. In fact, the muffins actually contain tiny dots of very soft caramel sauce, not 'fudge pieces'. The caramel sauce was negligible; just a couple of tiny dots that added no flavour or moisture to the cake at all.The Muffin itself lacked flavour. It tasted very lightly of maple and were not a sweet as I was expecting. There would need to be a lot more caramel sauce to added something to these.
Overall, the description was misleading, unless I got a dodgy batch. They were stodgy and hard to swallow and lack flavour and sweetness. They definitely aren't worth consuming the several of hundred calories.
