The world's best brownie can only be purchased in Grenada. There is a Grenada chocolate museum near the top of the hill when you walk from the harbor to the market. They will give you a short tour with a hands-on explanation of how chocolate is made. Better still is the little sweet shop where chocolate can be sampled.

Lisa and I visited several times, especially with friends who came to sail on Uproar with us. We tried the brownie on our first visit and it quickly became a favorite. We even imported a few of these brownies to the River Retreat when we returned for a visit. A Grenada brownie can serve four for desert and cost $3. Best brownie in the world!

Some sailing friends from Milwaukee chartered a boat in Grenada last month. They contacted us to get recommendations for places to visit in Grenada. The chocolate museum brownie was on the list.

Culebra has a bakery that also runs the laundromat. If you need quarters, you have to visit the bakery for change. There in the bakery case was a brownie that resembled the Grenada treat. We bought one and sampled it on the curb outside the laundry. Lisa said, “It is so rich and thick, it is more like fudge than a brownie.”

I replied, “It's a Frownie!”

We went back yesterday and waited in a long line for two more Frownies. They are delicious! Better than the Grenada brownie? Not sure. But we will be back there in a month or so and hope they are still making the world's best brownies.

If you have read this far, sorry for a trivial post. But I'm more than sorry you can't enjoy a bite of Frownie with us on Uproar!
