Fat Witch has an impressive array of brownies -- or witches as they call them.

The three most popular witches are the original, the double chocolate, and the caramel.

They also sell a Blonde Witch, which is your typical blondie: a cookie-like brownie that's made with chocolate chips.

There's also the Java Witch with cappuccino chocolate chips; the Breakfast Witch, which is a combination of oatmeal, brown sugar, walnuts, and coffee; and the Red Witch, which features dried cherries.

There's more! There's the Snow Witch, which is packed with white chocolate, the minty Emerald City Witch, and the nutty Walnut Witch.

Besides brownies, Fat Witch sells lots of other treats.

For customers looking for more of a bite than a full brownie, there are witch babies: smaller versions of regular witches.

There are also brownie edges, for those who prefer the crusty outsides to the gooey insides.

Customers can even make their own witches at home, thanks to the bakery's pre-packaged brownie mix...

After browsing the bakery, we returned to the office with three witches: the Original Witch, the Caramel Witch, and the Blonde Witch.

Business Insider / Emmie Martin

First up for the taste test was the original. With a soft and moist center, and a crispy top layer, this witch checked all the boxes of a solid, traditional brownie.

Next was the Caramel Witch. With no threads of caramel in the brownie itself, and nary a taste of caramel at all, this witch was somewhat disappointing. Although the witch was rich, dense, and tasty, we were hoping for a more distinct caramel flavour.

Business Insider / Emmie Martin

We saved the Blonde Witch for last, and it was delicious. It had a bold cookie-like flavour (as a blondie should), but a definite brownie-like texture, and the chocolate chunks added the prefect amount of chocolate. This witch was a definite winner.
