Maison Cakao brownies and brownie roundup

Whomever suggested these: I cannot thank you enough. They were very very good. I no longer need to make Nigella's three stick of butter brownies and gain 10 pounds in one day. I can treat myself with these without the feeling that I am overpaying for baked goods that I can easily replicate at home. We are talking about dark chocolate here. Not sickly sweet, intensely chocolatey, with fantastic texture that is not cakey-nor too chewy: with a nice crack on top. No sugar coma, just good brownies. Yum. Umm and they are huge!

Now the roundup:
Olive et Gourmando: These are not horrible, but not as special as I thought they would be considering the hype. In fact, they almost tasted ordinary.
Cocoa Locale: Nice texture with a kick of spice, but when there is cakes I'll get the cakes
Les Chocolates de Chloe: Just a little bit of salt, and some pecans. Not bad, but too much milkiness for my taste. But to each her own, smoother chocolate fans might love these.
