Lisa's Gourmet FF Brownies

I have a somewhat odd question -- I have stumbled upon these fat free brownies which have the label "Lisa's Gourmet Fat Free Brownies." For a fat free baked good they are pretty good -- I've found them at the Grand Central Market and at Primo Espress or whatever its called when I was waiting for a train at Penn Station. I was wondering if anyone knew where these were actually from? Is this a local baker/co.? I've never seen them anywhere else. Also if anyone knows about other good "low fat" baked goods (yes, I know it is questionable if anything low fat is really good, but bare with me) in NYC I would love to know about it.

Thanks in Advance

      where in the grand central market? id like to get some today.
      oh wait, this was originally posted in 2007...are they still there?

    2. BEWARE OF LISA'S GOURMET FAT FREE BROWNIES! They are not fat free and made with low fat butter. Fat free butter is discontinued. Be ware! These good brownies do have fat!

        Any facts to back this up? This is your first post, and it's defamatory, which is very suspicious.

        Also, fat free butter cannot be discontinued, because it never existed in the first place. Butter is made of fat, and a little water, and maybe some salt.

          Replace natural fat with chemical, processed substance and you have fat free.
          Y, that sounds much healthier than eating some butter or unprocessed oil.
          Why is it healthy people do not eat this rubbish?
          Fat free butter, that is priceless.

            When you read the ingrediaants on her lable it says FAT FREE MARGARINE (not butter, sorry) and fat free margarine was cancelled 3-4 years ago. How is she still making these brownies unless she is using reduced fat butter? Somehow I think these are NOT fat free but instead are lowfat
