The pros: Trader Joe's Brownie Crisps is an easy way to get your chocolate fix. Vegan & gluten free if that is important to you. $2.99 which is reasonable for something in the snack aisle. Another nice alternate for making yourself a 100 calorie snack.
The cons: A bit gritty or grainy in texture. Smells like a brownie, tastes like a crisp chocolate cookie. A lot of my crisps were broken from their original square shape.
The verdict: I'd probably buy this again. I really like chocolate snacks so this was right up my alley. It's worth a try, just the texture is disappointing, so don't expect smooth cookie. If you are eating gluten free you'll probably enjoy this as a nice snack.

Trader Joe's description:
The brownie crisps:
As a snack to manage caloric intake they were good. You get 3 good sized square for 100 calories. This only becomes problematic when you have the broken pieces like the picture above. The texture was just ok. I don't eat vegan or gluten free, but it wasn't a deal breaker either. Worth a look. I'll probably buy this again for my chocolate cravings.

Okay, give this a try: a good vanilla ice cream. Crumble some of these on top. Top with TJs Hot Fudge and then drizzle with some of the amazing TJ Coffee Syrup.
Oh. My. Deity.
I felt like I was reducing my life span by a day with every bite, and it was damn well worth it!
That sounds divine! I saw the Coffee Syrup earlier in the year but haven't seen it recently. I need to give your suggestion a try. It sounds really amazing. Thanks for sharing that!
