Trader Joe's described these as "a rich brownie taste with a crisp cookie crunch." They're also gluten free and vegan. A 5-ounce package costs $2.99.
I've inhaled a (probably $7.00) mini bag of brownie brittle from the airplane snack cart before, so when I saw these at TJ's, I was curious.
A mom's (my) take: There's truth in the name here...Brownie Crisp. The pieces are crispy, chocolatey, and definitely reminiscent of a brownie. My favorite pieces were the ones with a higher chocolate chip to crisp ratio. If you love the edges and corner pieces of a tray of brownies (I'm a gooey center girl myself), I think you'll flip over these.
Overall rating: 4 of 5 stars
A teenager's (Jack's) take: I get more of a double-chocolate-cookie kind of taste from these. However, especially in those little chocolate bits on the top, it is definitely reminiscent of a good brownie. These are very good for anyone wanting a brownie, or rather a half-brownie, half-cookie, without all the mess and meltiness!
Overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
