Treat to Try: Mrs. Turbo’sJuly 31, 2019 10:34 am Miriam Bowers Abbott
Mrs. Turbo’s original location is tucked away in an eclectic building complex in Gahanna. It’s a sweet bakery boutique. Behind the counter, shelves are stocked with displays of attractive cookie concoctions that a clerk will help you select.
It’s there that the ultimate Buckeye Brownie can be found. Buckeye Brownies aren’t a terribly new concept on the eating scene. Chocolate and peanut butter themselves are an iconic combo that can be found not only in brownies, but cookies, cakes, ice cream, and every Reese’s product ever. That said, this Turbo brownie is special.
Let’s start with a deep, dark, dense chocolate brownie base made with Ghirardelli. Know what’s on top of that? Something akin to peanut butter fudge. It’s described as a “buttercream,” but it’s too flavorful, compact, and intense to be some sort of generic frosting. It’s pretty much game over right there, but then Mrs. Turbo’s is a boutique, so there’s a chocolate ganache on top of that.
Every single element delivers in every single bite. The Buckeye Brownie is heavy, and it’s huge, and while some might think it’s right-sized to share, you’ll regret every bite you give away.
Of course, there are other cookies in Turbo shelf selection, lots of sandwich cookies and options that are loaded with chips. Case in point: there’s a seldom-seen Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookie that is loaded with fall flavors. It’s early to talk about fall foods, but something about it is vaguely reminiscent of a pumpkin pie, and yes, it’s well-populated with butterscotch chips.
If that’s not your bag, there’s buttercream frosted cookies, snickerdoodles, chocolate chip, and oodles of other baked options, along with whoopie pies. And for health-food aficionados, the cookies are “all-natural,” with no trans-fat, additives or preservatives.
