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!
