NEETZY’S COMMENTS

neetzy-sheila-gs-brownie-brittle-chocolatey-chip-review-3This Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle has a really yummy milk chocolate flavor. The texture offers a satisfying crunch which reminds me somewhat of an extra crispy macaron shell. This product is made with cocoa and dried egg whites, which I think is what makes this snack so light and airy.

The only slight disappointment was that the “chocolatey chips” in this Brownie Brittle didn’t have the texture of a true chocolate chip. They more or less blended in with the cookie, and weren’t really noticeable. I expected these “chips” to be firmer (more like chocolate).

The 113-g bag I purchased in Canada contained about 8 big squares (~2.5 x 2.5″) and a bunch of large and small broken pieces. I was quite surprised (and pleased) that the product wasn’t all broken chunks as this product is very delicate, thin, and crispy.

I have bought this flavor or Brownie Brittle more than once! It’s a snack that doesn’t make you feel too guilty even if you overindulge and eat the entire bag.
