ALL ABOUT THE BEST BROWNIES
What is the sweetener used?
We do NOT USE processed crystal white sugar in any of our products. We use unrefined sugar which is sourced locally from brands with several years of experience and detail. Our brownies are not over sweet and we believe in keeping a balance of sweetness to ensure they are safe to consume regularly by all age groups.
Are ministop brownies chewy / goey or just a cold bite?
Ministop Brownies are mostly goey. We have worked hard to make sure our brownie formula creates a goey tasteful outcome. Our eggless nutty brownies are chewy. Our vegan brownies are not goey but are tastefully prepared and suite the palate of our vegan customers. We use nuts and eggs in most of our brownies, hence please look for the details on the product page to ensure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients before you confirm your order.
I cannot finish the box in a single sitting. How long will the brownies last? how do I store them?
Ministop Brownies can last up to two weeks, best kept in the fridge (refrigerate; NOT freezer). When you wish to consume bring the brownies out and let it stay out for a while till it warms up to room temperature; or you may heat it for 5 to 10 seconds in the microwave before consuming.

PAYMENT OPTIONS ON MINISTOP BROWNIES
I want to pay cash. Do you have a COD (cash on delivery) option?
We do not have a COD or cash option as the process to begin packing your brownie order, only starts once your order has been paid for. Therefore without a payment; orders cannot be processed.
I see there are two options to make payments. Which one is better?
The first option to pay by DEBIT/CREDIT CARDS is quick, does not take you away from this website and processes payments through PayUBiz payment gateway seamlessly. PayUBiz supports all major Indian debit cards and all major Indian credit cards (visa, Amex, Master Card, Diners Discover).
The second option, "Manual Payments" can be used to pay through any other payment option using PayU payment gateway as service provider. This option allows you to pay via PayU manual payment link which allows you to pay via Cards / Netbanking / UPI / Wallets / GPay, etc. However confirming of orders are done manually for these payments and hence may take upto an hour to confirm receipt. The link takes you away from this website onto the PayU payment gateway where the payment transaction is carried out on a secure PayU site. To complete your order, you must return to this website and complete the checkout through "Review & Place Order".
I made a payment through the "Manual Payment" link but closed the checkout page by mistake.
How do I complete my order?
Create a fresh basket with the order you had chosen earlier and ensure the final amount shown in your basket is the same as what you have already paid. Choose 'Manual Payment' but do not click the "click here" link. Continue to complete your checkout.
Once we receive the order, we will match your payment receipt with the order using the mobile number provided in the manual payment receipt to the mobile number provided in your brownie order.
I did not complete my order submission but made a payment. Can I send the details via whatsapp or email?
The checkout page on the ministop brownie website takes several delivery details and ensures that tax billing is taken care of, while submitting the order through an exact manner process to our staff; hence we would not accept other forms of delivery details submission as it will only lead to errors in order processing. We need every order to be completed on the website so the orders are processed correctly and you receive exactly what you ordered.

What are the delivery precautions and hygiene that is being maintained?
Packing Hygiene: The freshly baked brownies are cut using a stainless steel knife that is washed every hour so there is no use of hands on the brownie. A stainless steel spatula is used to pick and place the brownie in the box. The staff wears a mask and head cap and stays at the work premise which ensures they do not travel and are monitored constantly for health and hygiene deviations. A hand sanitizer is kept at all entrances and is used liberally.
Delivery Precaution: The brownie boxes are placed inside a brown paper bag on which we mark your address and instructions for the delivery agent. Therefore the delivery agent does not touch the brownie box which is taped inside the bag. The bags are kept outside for the delivery agent to collect who is intimated via text messaging which ensures we do not contact the delivery agent physically. Once you receive your order from the delivery agent, you may cut open the brown paper bag to get to your untouched brownie boxes.
