I bought some of these chocolate covered coffee beans last week, and they are the roxors!
Just to be clear, I didn’t just by *some*, I bought *loads*. 3kg to be precise. It’s not really my fault, they got proportionately cheaper, the more you buy, so it was… well… a saving… sort of. Oh dear.
Anyway, they are my new most favourite food. I love coffee sweets generally, which puts me in a minority in the world I realise that. However these are some slight coffee tasting cream sweetie, oh no, they’re the real deal. A whole roasted coffee bean that’s been (haha) coated in chocolate.
They pretty much taste like Mocha (I’m lead to believe, I don’t drink the stuff myself) but they do do a very good job of cutting out the middle man… water in this instance. I took some down the gym on Saturday (did I say I bought 3kg of the stuff?) and the reaction as pretty consistent: “Chocolate coated coffee beans? Are you sure? That sounds terrible. I’ll just try one… small one. Hey that’s not bad. Actually that’s pretty good. Let me try another. Hey, they’re great, can I take a hand full?” They were a great success and highly recommended, and I have to thank my friend Ian Sturrock for the original introduction to them.
