Blog #5: Brownies

Brownies are a classic dessert that is simple and easy to make.  You can make it for just about any occasion.  There are a few different recipes and ways on how to make it.  You can add cream cheese, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, icing and much more!  My personal favorite type of brownie to make is when I add chocolate chips and chocolate icing.  This is a great dessert to bring to family and friend gatherings.  You can decorate them for almost any holiday or occasion simply by just adding some colorful sprinkles.  Below is another one of my favorite recipes from Betty Crocker's site that include cream cheese and chocolate chips.  It takes a little bit of time to make these but it is a simple recipe that turns out great every single time!

There are two different types of goods: durable and nondurable.  Durable goods lasts over a long period of time while non durable goods last only for one or two uses.  In this case with brownies, they are a non durable good because once you eat it, it is gone.  You only get one main use out of them.  

Classifying Products
There are 4 types of consumer products: convenience, shopping, specialty, and unsought.          
        Convenience: These products are usually bought frequently; like milk or eggs. 
        Shopping: These products are things people have to think about a little more before buying
        and compare with other products; like a hair cut or new shoes.
        Specialty: These products are things you need to learn more about before purchasing
        because they are very expensive; like cars.
        Unsought: These products are thing you don't think about at all or don’t want to think 
        about; like life insurance.   

Brownies aren't usually bought as frequently as things like milk and eggs but in this case, it isn't as extreme as shopping products, therefore it is classified as a convenience product. However, if you have severe food allergies or may be gluten free, brownies could be classified as shopping products because you would have to think a little more about buying them to make sure you get the right product to fit your needs.
