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!
