On The Hunt For Plantation Brownies

Does the above wrapper look familiar? At my old job, we had a vending machine that sold these brownies for $0.25! The company I worked for subsidized the cost of the snacks, one of the perks of the job. During one late night at work, I bought 8 of ‘em!

For some reason, I had a craving for these last week. Now, I’ve only ever seen these sold in vending machines, and I haven’t worked in an office in over 5 years. So started my search.

Here’s what I’ve found so far: Plantation Brownies were manufactured by President Baking, which was acquired by Keebler. Then Kellogg’s later bought out Keebler, and supposedly killed the Plantation Brownie.

Now, rumor has it that Mrs Freshley’s has come out with a Chocolate Fudge Brownie that’s supposed to be very similar to the old Plantation Brownie.

I haven’t been able to find anyone that sells them though, so now I’m on the hunt for that. (In the meantime, I tried Tastycake’s overpriced fudge brownie – Close, but no cigar)

If anyone has any info on this, please let me know. :D

    I would be willing to invest my life saving in a plantation brownie reprise. I miss them so much!!!

  • Hi Steve,

    I have been craving the brownies all day today out of the blue. I actually couldn’t remember the exact name. I searched brownies, fudge brownies, England brownies, and pecan brownies with chocolate chips until I recognized the name Olde New England brownies. Bet I googled for over an hour! I had noticed I never could find these for a long time, but never realized until now that they are out of production. Please tell your dad how wonderfully delicious the brownies were and that I miss them greatly. I remember getting them from the convenience stores and vending machines in school and college. If you don’t get to ever put the recipe back in production, would you ever think of sharing it with the world? Thanks for putting a smile on my face and satisfying my chocolate cravings so many times. God bless you and yours.
