I'm not sure how Mrs. Beasleys became popular. It's packaging is cute and affordable, maybe that's why??? But as for the taste,it is NOT good. Everything looks a lot better than it tastes. I am not a picky eater, especially when it comes to sweets. But these cookies, muffins, etc. are at best mediocre. Stick with Mrs. Fields or even your local bakery - they may not have the nice wrapping, but at least they don't taste so blaaaah.
Pros: packaging, wrapping
