A few weeks ago, I received an email from someone who said that her mom has an online business, called Sweet Bunch, selling all sorts of pastries such as brownies, cupcakes, cookies and more. She said she would like to send me samples to try if I am willing to review the products on this blog.
She had me at cookies. Everyone in our house is a cookie monster. I took a look at their store’s Instagram account to see photos of their products and saw this below. How can you not drool? So, of course I said yes!
You can just imagine our excitement when this assortment of yummy-looking goodies arrived at our house via Xend. Oh my gosh, we wanted to devour them right there and then but I had to take photos first of course, so everybody had to wait! Haha!
Now before I tell you what they taste like, let me give you some information about the shop.
Sweet Bunch is a pioneering home-grown enterprise and is online based for the moment. We offer a wide range of homemade goodies like cookies, crinkles, brownies, cupcakes, donuts, chocolates and other sweet delights! Every delicious treat is baked freshly by my mom, Mrs. Joey Gaspar.

The owner, Joey Gaspar, is a loving wife to Francis and a mother of six. The eldest being 23 years old and the youngest is one year old, namely: Mark, Michel, Mariane, Moira, Matthew and Morgan. She is a full-time mom and has been a home baker for over 20 years. She actually started at a very young age considering she is just in her early 40’s.
I love the fact that the owner of Sweet Bunch is a mompreneur. The fact that she is taking care of 6 kids and is running a business is admirable.
Now here’s what we think about their goodies.
Chocolate Crinkles (Php 100 per pack, 8 pcs.)
The Chocolate Crinkles are fudgy cookies with a white chocolate medallion inside. You know how some chocolate crinkles in some stores are hard and tastes bland? That is so not how Sweet Bunch’s Chocolate Crinkles taste like. They truly are fudgy and very chewy. The chocolate is also not too sweet and just right. All three of my kids love Chocolate Crinkles and they definitely loved this one. It’s just too bad though that we had to share only 2 pieces!
Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies (Php 100 per pack, 8 pcs.)
What I hate about some choco chip cookies is the fact that some of them don’t really have enough chocolate in them. With this one though, there is no lack of that chocolate goodness. Sweet Bakes definitely put in a generous amount of semi-sweet chocolate in these cookies. They are also soft and chewy and they melt in your mouth. If you’re looking for a classic chocolate cookie, this one’s for you.
Ghirardelli Choco Oatmeal Cookies (Php 120 per pack/ 8 pcs.)
These cookies consist of a combination of two kinds of chocolates: dark sweet choco chips and 70% cacao Ghirardelli chocolates. Apparently, this is a fave among chocoholics and I can understand why. I’m a big fan of dark chocolate so this was actually the first one I tried. First of all I love choco oatmeal cookies. The fact that this one has dark choco and Ghirardelli is a plus!
Choco Oatmeal Cookies (Php 100 per pack, 8 pcs.)
Now if you don’t want some fancy chocolates and prefer the basic choco oatmeal cookies, then you gotta try this. This is hands-down the favorite of all five of us in the family. The Sweet Bunch Choco Oatmeal Cookies are puffy looking cookies with semi-sweet chocolate cookies inside. Like all the other goodies, these are also soft and chewy but what I love most about it is the perfect combination of chocolate and oatmeal. I will definitely get a lot of this when I order next time.
Oreo Cheesecake Cookies (Php 100 per pack, 8 pcs.)
These are actually Oreo cheesecakes transformed into cookies with chocolate chips in the mix. You’ll like this if you like Oreos. Plus they added more choco chips! They’re also soft and chewy with a crunch. I like them but prefer if had a more palpable cheesecake taste because I love cheesecake!
Oreo Choco Chip Cookies (Php 100 per pack, 8 pcs. or Php 150 per pack for regular Oreo size)
Here’s another one for the Oreo-lovers! This version is a pillow like chocolate chip cookie with Oreos inside. What we received are the small ones and not the ones with the regular -sized Oreos. They look and taste like the chunky choco chip cookies but with the additional taste and crunchiness of the Oreos. Try this if you want more than your basic choco chip cookie.
Brookies (Php 125 per pack/5 pcs.)
Now this one is a Sweet Bunch hybrid original. Brookies actually have a brownie on top and a cookie underneath. I was really curious about this when I first saw it on their IG page. They look so yummy. Well, they definitely did not disappoint. I loved it! The brownie part was choco-heaven, melt-in-your mouth goodness. Add the chewy-ness and chunkiness of the cookie made the sensation similar to that of eating cheesecake. Will definitely order these too!
Overall, we truly loved the Sweet Bunch products that we got to try. I can assume that they were delivered freshly-baked because all of them were still really soft and chewy and delicious. We had our favorites though and for sure, you’ll have yours too. We loved them so much that we finished the entire box in less than 24 hours. We would have devoured them all in one sitting if I wasn’t too concerned about the kids eating too much sweets.
We also actually want to try all the other Sweet Bunch goodies. Aside from the ones I mentioned they also sell Cookie Smores (OMG!), Cream Cheese Cinnamon Roll, Chocolate Banana Loaf, Sugarless Banana Loaf and Yema Loaf and more. OMG! I am seriously salivating already.
