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. If you are already familiar with Lucy’s Cookies, then I think you know what to expect with this treat. It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, and vegan, but still a sweet treat.
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.
These Lucy’s Cookies made me crave a big mug of tea. Each bite was like a sweet, buttery biscuit dusted with delightful sugar crystals.

A true chocoholics delight
Muffin top meets brownie. Chips meet dessert. However you describe them, these square, crunchy bites are a true chocoholics delight. Each bite is infused with cocoa goodness and a deliciously balanced yet deep flavor. We recommend them highly for afternoon snacks and school lunch boxes since they are not only kid-friendly, but also made allergen-safe for 7 of the 8 top allergens.
