There were a few real gems that we walked away from Expo West with this year, and one was a full-size bag of the deliciously innovative Lucy’s Brownie Crisp.
I have a feeling Dr. Lucy will be coming out with more versions of her revolutionary Crisp! Think thick kettle chips meet dessert or the brownie version of muffin tops. Although I think the Triple Chocolate Brownie will happily satisfy many chocoholic cravings.
Tasting Notes for Lucy’s Brownie Crisp
Just looking at these thick, crunchy squares reveals just how chocolaty they are. Each bite is infused with cocoa, 72% dark chocolate chunks and 46% dark chocolate chips. The contrasting chocolate depth provides a tasty balance that is further enhanced by Madagascar vanilla. I simply adore vanilla, it makes every dessert better!
As for the overall flavor notes, the Triple Chocolate Lucy’s Brownie Crisp has a slightly burnt, yet deep, rich chocolate flavor complimented by oodles of the aforementioned chocolate chunks and chips – they don’t skimp!
Like super-crunchy potato chips, you’ll find some beautifully whole bites of Lucy’s Brownie Crisp in the bag, and some smaller broken pieces. I actually love this, as there is often something more satisfying and less guilty about each a bunch of bites! That said, three whole crisps weigh in at just 100 calories – though I could easily eat six! They bill Lucy’s Brownie Crisp as a snack, but this was all dessert by our tastes and standards.
As many of you know, Dr. Lucy runs an allergen-safe company, and like her cookies, the Brownie Crisp is made free-from milk / dairy, eggs, gluten / wheat, peanuts, and tree nuts. But they do contain soy.
