Coffee Crisp

A while ago, I posted about liking coffee creme revels.

Following this Glenda very, very kindly sent me a Canadian classic: Coffee Crisp. 4, to be precise. (They were actually sent before christmas, but as they had a long way to travel they arrived afterwards, while I was in the UK, and then there was the weekend, so I couldn’t get to the post office to collect them etc etc.) Anyway, I’ve been remiss in my blogging.

Coffee Crisp then.

Although I’ve been to Canada a few times for various reasons (namely family holiday, rugby tour, summer working  and 3 day business trip), I hadn’t noticed Coffee Crisps before. It may be because the look is, well, classic? Vintage? It could be that I was distracted all the time by the novelty of Hersheys (disappointing), and some tasty peanut butter filled things (not Reeces) that were really addictive and I’m really glad I haven’t seen over here.

Anyway, Coffee Crisp. Old style packaging:

See what I mean? I have to say, I like it.

Now, my interior photo is a bit blurry. I apologise.

The Coffee Crisp is essentially coffee flavoured wafer wrapped in milk chocolate.

It shouldn’t be substantial, and I wasn’t sure if it would satisfy my cravings for sweet deliciousness.

However. I was very pleasantly surprised. It was delicious! Really really tasty. And filling! Light, but filling. Perfect with a cup of tea, and I’d imagine pretty damn good with a cup of coffee too. Similar to a KitKat chunky, but not the same. Not as much thick chocolate, but sometimes that’s a good thing.

I still have two left, but if you’re hoping for me to be offering them as some sort of prize you can stop that thought right there. These are all mine and nobody else is getting their hands on them. I’m almost reluctant to eat them because then they’ll be gone.

Thanks so much Glenda!

  1. Coffee Crisp are one of the things I miss about home. It’s funny though, I never realised they’re actually coffee flavoured until recently. I think cause I started eating them long before I ever tried coffee. They were my favourite chocolate treat as a child :)

  2. Whaaa? You’re not just giving your tasty candies away??

    I’m going to have to see if I can find some kind of equivalent here; I love coffee candies, and this country has some completely bizarre selections I haven’t delved into yet…

  3. I’m glad you liked them! My favourite way to eat a coffee crisp is to bite off the wafers at the top and bottom, so that only the coffee-flavoured solid-creme stuff in the middle is left. Then you eat that bit really slowly, because its the tastiest part! :)

  4. Mmmm… I miss Coffee Crisps. I never used to eat them when I lived in Canada, but about a year after I moved to London I had such an enormous craving that I sent out requests for a bar (just one bar!) to be sent over. It’s the same as Kraft Dinner (which is so wrong it’s right).
