Coffee Crisp

Coffee_crisp

I am a coffee lover -- seriously.  So I was pretty sure that the Coffee Crisp wouldn't measure up for me.  And while I didn't think there was a lot of coffee flavor in this bar, I really liked it. 

My first thought when I bit into the bar was that it reminded me of a KitKat, only larger.  Now It's not like the Big KitKat -- which I abhor.  (Why?  It breaks apart and there's too much waxy chocolate in relation to the inside.  Ugh!)  Instead it has a thinner layer of chocolate and very nice crispy layers of wafer and coffee creme.  Now, it is a mass market bar and as you would expect it's quite sweet.  I have to say though that I would eat this again -- it's tasty and I like the subtle coffee flavor.

The Coffee Crisp bar is from Nestle of Canada and I've only seen it at one shop -- a little candy store in a town about 30 minutes from where I live.  However, there have been people petitioning to get Nestle to sell the bar in the US and low and behold -- it looks like they are going to do just that!  Power to the people!

Too bad you didn't get to try one when they, along with Aero and Kit Kat, used to be made by a British company called Rowntree. When Nestle bought them out, the quality went way down and the sugar content went way up. Rowntree's chocolate was excellent. Nestle's is cheap and way too sweet. How I miss them, the chocolates of my childhood!

I love these!! They have them in the machine at work. It's using all my willpower not to go down and buy one right now...
