Coffee Crisp: "The best candy bar ever invented" — Julie Bestry
Never even having heard of this candy bar until about 15 minutes ago I'm in no position to judge.
But I suspect there are members of joehead Nation who could tell us clueless ones a whole lot about their positions.
Get yours here.

Damn, and my passport has ran out. I remember the days of paying canadian truck drivers double what they paid. Aero bars are quite tasty as well.

Missed them terribly while I spent long years living in the USA. Now I'm back in Canada, I indulge regularly. The middle layer of honeycombed goodness is what makes them extra special.

Are Coffee Crisp a Canadian thing then? I'm so surprised, certainly one of my faves.

I have often wondered why they are called coffee crisps - they do not really taste much like coffee - mostly like chocolate.
re: caffeine (form the Nestle web site): "Chocolate naturally contains caffeine; just don't expect that same zing you get from a cup of java. When it comes to caffeine, chocolate is a lightweight compared to its opponent. Here are the stats: an 8-ounce cup of coffee has about 85mg of caffeine, while...
A Nestlé Crunch regular 1.55 oz bar has 13 mg.
A Nestlé Crunch Crisp 1.34 oz bar has 7 mg.
3 Nestlé Crunch Fun Size bars have 12 mg.
4 Nestlé Crunch Minis have 13 mg.
A Nestlé Buncha Crunch 1.2oz Pouch has 10 mg.
Give them a try, if you like crunchy chocolate bars - but, as someone said on Amazon - don't in summer (or any time it is hot) you may get a melted mess...)

I've never been exposed to this confection. Just not much of a coffee fan. But if it has sugar in it and a crispety-crunchety chew, then I'm in. In general, if I'm going to waste my calories on a low-nutrition, high-taste "meal" then I'd prefer a candy bar with heft and caramely goo and crown-detaching stickiness. I'm quite sure I'd like it, though.

Had them for years, quite a favorite.

Formerly made by Rowntree of England but now made by Nestle. It was fabulous then and is a bit disappointing now as based on extensive personal research conducted not only on Coffee Crisp but also Aero bars and Mackintosh's Toffee in Winnipeg two months ago.

Yum. Anyone who has ever visited Canada, lived in Canada, or resided along the border would have to agree. Best candy bar ever invented.
