What happened to Rachel’s brownies?

We sold Rachel’s Brownies to GoodMark Foods in 1989, and the business continued until about 1996.

Brownies should be removed from the oven before the centre is fully cooked, as the brownies will continue to set as they cool and this gives the brownie its soft texture.
