I got a package of Laurie & Sons Toasted Almond Baked Brittle in my Cuisine Cube delivery today and the packaged lasted about 15 minutes. We demolished all three “grab ‘n go” packs after dinner tonight.
This was a great slightly sweet snack or, in our case, dessert. The description on the package says “baked brittle.” It’s described as “a light and airy indulgence with none of the sticky guilt of its kettled counterpart … it won’t break your teeth or your bank.” It held true to its packaging.
I’m not an expert in brittle but my idea of it is more akin to toffee. It’s good but it’s super sweet and tough on your teeth. This was not like that. The package came with individually sealed packets of about three strips each. Each strip was about the length of my finger and slightly wider.
The strips had toasted almond slices stuck to a melt-in-your mouth strip that reminded me of meringue but not quite as delicate. I wasn’t sure if I should think of it as a cookie or a piece of candy but it was good regardless.
Laurie and Sons is a women-owned business based New York’s Harlem neighborhood. They make small batch, hand crafted treats using carefully sourced, gluten-free ingredients (many local, organic and sustainable) and new techniques. This line of baked brittles made their debut this past summer.
