King Arthur Flour Monkey Bread Review and Giveaway

 King Arthur Flour is America’s oldest flour company, founded in Boston in 1790 to provide pure, high-quality flour for residents of the newly formed United States. For more than 200 years, they have stood by their commitment to purity and quality. Their flours are free of unnecessary chemicals - never bleached, never bromated - and they hold them to the strictest specifications in the industry so you know that every bag you get - today, next month, or 10 years from now - will perform the same way.

In 1984, King Arthur Flour moved its headquarters to Norwich, Vermont. Camelot, as their headquarters is known, has since become a bakers' paradise, home to not only The Baker's Store - full of all the wonderful things you see in their catalogue, and more - but also the King Arthur Bakery, headed by Certified Master Baker Jeffrey Hamelman, and the Baking Education Center, where they offer hands-on classes for everyone from children to professional bakers.
King Arthur Flour produces the highest quality flour in America and is the third largest seller of flour in the country. The company once refused delivery of an entire trainload of 11 boxcars of wheat because it fell one-tenth of 1% below its stated standard for protein levels.

High standards of quality apply to all King Arthur Flour recipes and to the company’s unwavering dedication to baking education. No recipe from King Arthur Flour escapes testing and retesting in its kitchens in Norwich, Vermont.

My Thoughts~!!

Okay, so the family and I had never heard of Monkey Bread and that is the reason we were attracted to this particular product.  However, after we began making them they were soon dubbed, Monkey Balls.

After the children got over their giggles about their eating Monkey Balls, everyone thought the Italian Herb & Parmesan Monkey Bread was delicious.  They kind of reminded us of eating a Herb & Parmesan Subway specialty bun, the flavours were quite similar.  VERY tasty~!!

We all agree that the Cinnamon Caramel Monkey Bread was our favourite...OH MY...what yummy, sticky goodness this palate delectable was!  And the kids said we were eating Monkey Fingers...I cannot dispute their observations...LOL  We couldn't eat it fast enough and then we became depressed that there wasn't any more left...hehe  VERY delicious indeed!!  

My 6 y/o son said that Monkeys tasted really good...after explaining that he wasn't really eating Monkeys...the husband and I giggled at his innocence. we laughed really hard and I even snorted...hehe
The recipes were clear, concise, easy-to-follow and you receive everything you need to whip up these scrumptious masterpieces!  

We were afraid that we didn't have the proper pan to cook them in and after being told that it wasn't necessary, we jumped right in and they turned out better than we had expected!!

Now, we would love to offer one of our readers the same two boxed recipes that we received to review...

Trust me when I say they are delicious~!!
