Cissé Cocoa

Cissé is a great company, based on strong principles of ethically responsible chocolate, and quality ingredients, organic when possible.  Cocoa is at the core of all the product lines, including Super Thins, baking mixes (cookies, brownies, muffins, cakes, etc), and hot cocoa.

I tried only the "Super Thins".
"We’ve taken our delicious brownie recipe, spread it out super thin and made it delightfully crunchy. Then we added our favorite superfoods on top to make them the perfect snackable treat. Now you can have your brownie and eat it too!"
Yes, another entry into the cookies/brownie/chips hybrid world, much like the fairly successful brownie brittle from Sheila G's, the HannahMax cookie chips that I didn't like but others did, or even less successful cookie thins from Mrs. Thinsters.

Super Thins come in some interesting flavors, like cranberry pepita, cashew coconut, and cherry & sea salt.  The bag I had though was the most boring: double chocolate.  That said, I don't see any reason to try others.  This market just isn't one I'm interested in.
Double Chocolate.
The crisps were basically like any other brownie/cookie/chip on the market, crispy, slightly crumbly.  The chocolate flavor wasn't very intense, and I just don't care for the crispy format.

But the real problem?  They tasted ... fishy.  It was really strange.  They have nothing suspect in them, just sugar, chocolate chips, butter, flour, etc.  I don't understand where the flavor came from, and it was that strong, but it was there.

So, crispy, and fishy? Not for me.
