  • New Brownie Crisp!

    Posted in Uncategorized by Lucy

    BC_Homepg_article2This year Lucy’s will provide consumers with even more healthy and enjoyable gluten-free options with a new line of brownie products. Triple Chocolate Brownie Crisp, the first flavor to hit shelves, features a delicious mix of 72 percent dark chocolate chunks, chocolate chips, cocoa, and Madagascar vanilla. This treat is a symphony of deep, rich chocolate flavor with a satisfying crisp snap. Even with its decadent taste, one serving size of three crisps only contains 100 calories.

    Like all Lucy’s products, the Brownie Crisp snacks are allergy friendly as they are made without gluten/wheat, dairy milk, butter, eggs, casein, peanuts, or tree nuts. Brownie Crisp is currently available in a 4.5 oz. pouch size and a 1.25 oz. Grab ‘n Go bag size.

    “At Lucy’s, we truly love providing delicious desserts to people who are either living with special diets or are just looking for a better-for-you option,” said Lucy’s Founder and Chairman, Dr. Lucy Gibney. “Launching the new Brownie Crisp not only expands our brand’s line but gives health-conscious consumers another option for a scrumptious gluten-free dessert.”

    Lucy’s is baking life better!

  • Different and Delicious!

    Gluten free foodsI’ve always loved good food, and I believe that great nutrition can also be very decadent and indulgent. With that as a backdrop, Lucy’s grew out of my family’s experience with food allergies. One of the main goals of my food allergy friendly, vegan, gluten free snacks has been to make life “normal” for people with special diets. Tasty food, easy to find, enjoyed by all.

    Here at Lucy’s we offer a variety of gluten free cookies. (Our Chocolate Chocolate Chunk cookies are a must try!) Compared with 2006, when our products first hit the shelves, the food choices in grocery stores and markets have ballooned—and many are simply excellent! I’m amazed at the number and quality of gluten free foods and other special items available now. I hope you’ve tried Lucy’s treats; our allergy-friendly, vegan cookies are available in 10 different flavors and several package sizes. Click here for a listing.

  • Gluten Free Cookies–Do we really need them?

    Posted in Uncategorized by Lucy

    gluten free cookiesKenneth Chang’s article “Gluten Free, Whether You Need It or Not” in the New York Times on February 4, 2013 raises a couple of excellent points. People need more information about celiac disease. And, a gluten free diet is not “new”–in fact, wheat is a relatively new food that the human body often does not tolerate.

    So whether you need them or not, when you’re looking for healthy cookies and treats, gluten free cookies might be the answer. Remember, gluten free is really not new, and Lucy’s are vegan cookies, too! When I developed the flour blend I use in Lucy’s gluten free cookies, I got just the right combination so my treats would have a taste and texture very similar to the wheat-based items that most people are accustomed to eating. This makes the transition to gluten free foods more subtle and a lot easier.

    It’s all about taste and texture, really. When it comes to a cookie or a cake, I’m like most people. Why eat it if it’s not yummy and delightful? Gluten free foods and gluten free snacks are still food—and that’s important to remember.

What People Are Saying About Lucy’s Gluten Free Foods & Snacks

“Just ate an entire box of your wonderful Maple Bliss cookies. In 7 minutes. With, no joking, tears in my eyes. Being middle aged and male made that a difficult admission. However, I have not been able to eat a good cookie in years due to a severe dairy allergy and have missed them very much. Walking down a cookie aisle is so depressing. Most people take being able to have a cookie for granted. For those with dietary restrictions you've given us back something seemingly small but actually quite important. Joy. Thanks so much.”
