My experience with BELIEVE NJ

Orders for 3 X 3 types of muffins of normal size were placed via email, after making initial contact through their website message board.  I arranged to collect them myself at the Hong Leong Gardens location.  Also to take pictures and explore their outfit.  🙂

It was quite a challenge to find initially, because there were actually more shop units than I anticipated.  Ms Blur here only realized a little later that the 186 of the address was actually the unit number.  Duh!

Upon entering the shop, I was greet by a slew of friendly faces.  The bakers were 2 very polite young men, Edwin Lim and Wee Zhi Wei, under the gentle supervision of Uncle Paul and Aunty Jenny.  They were even so kind as to offer me a cup of coffee and a sit-down chat.  Apparently I had come at just the right time, for they were in the midst of experimenting with a new muffin flavor, Green Tea and Chocolate Chip, which didn’t have any oil!  Slightly green and speckled with chocolate chips, the texture was surprisingly moist and chewy.  Not the usual ‘cakey’ kind of consistency, which is a definite plus for me!

The muffins are not your run-of-the mill ‘muffin top’ kind.  In fact, they actually look like cupcakes.  But make no mistake, none of them had that dry cakey texture that mass produced cupcakes normally taste of.  All the muffins I ordered were soft, moist and incredibly flavor-ful!  

My muffins were packaged in a white box, complete with festive red ribbon.  The apple cinnamon had thin slices of fresh apple (yummy!) and just the right hint of cinnamon, without being overpowering.  The banana one was power-packed with banana flavor and pretty robust.  By contrast, the cornflake muffins had a really interesting crunch at the top and a slightly salty taste in the main body.  Definitely pleased with my purchases and will return for more!
