We here at All the Stuff love sweet things. We love caffeinated things too. And we adore foods with strong, natural flavors, free of potentially nasty stuff like hydrogenated oils, preservatives and chemicals with names only specialists can pronounce.
This snack ticks all of these boxes and more. Specifically, its price compares well to other premium brands, while the packaging is elegant enough to make it a nice gift as is. Note that the same manufacturer also does latte and tea options in case a strong brew is not your thing.
Though the amount of caffeine in each bon-bon is actually minimal (eating a handful after dinner won’t keep you awake), the coffee flavor pops. Unlike candies that consist of little more than sugar and gelatin, these natural tastes endure in your mouth for quite a while, making you feel satisfied with fewer.
Even better, at only 13 calories per piece, about the same as two grams of chocolate (1½ of an ounce), you can certainly make this your daily guilty pleasure.
Something that will put a couple of people off this sweet is the texture. As any chocolate aficionado knows, the only way to truly enjoy it is to let it melt in your mouth at its own pace. This candy does dissolve, but you’ll probably be tempted to bite through the crunchy outside to the gooey center. It seems like the lack of artificial emulsificants and cacao butter makes the shell fragments a little brittle and prickly in your mouth – whether you can put up with this is up to you.
