For years I’ve had a massive coffee addiction. Like massive. I tell myself it’s only because I’m a graduate student and I’m just playing into the stereotype but that’s a bold face lie. I have always loved coffee. In recent months, I’ve managed to limit myself to only two cups in the morning (although cup sizes are relative), which feels like a big win. As I write this, I realize that my intense love/need for coffee is probably something I should address but frankly I just don’t want to. I love the stuff way too much and there are too many Buzzfeed articles online that tell me coffee is good for me so I’m gonna keep clinging to those for vindication.
As you probably know by now I also have a serious chocolate addiction. These Coffee Thins were like a double-whammy for me!
I expected to like these, but I thought the chocolate would taste a bit cheap because they’re made by Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. I set the bar pretty low and figured they wouldn’t be all that impressive. Well, I’m happy to report I was soooooo wrong. The chocolate is legit tasty. Like you know when you eat an expensive 70% cocoa chocolate bar and think “ya that’s quality”, these were kind of like that but with a hint of espresso.
They come in three flavours: original, caramel macchiato, and cappuccino. I taste tested the original and caramel flavours and both were delicious, but I enjoyed the original best. It was simple and when the chocolate is really good it doesn’t need all the bells and whistles.
Each chocolate treat is individually wrapped and advertised as having the equivalent of one cup of coffee’s worth of caffeine. It’s like coffee on the go! I’m not sure individual wrapping is really necessary but then again, maybe it’s helpful for people like me to help avoid consuming too much.
Needless to say, I’d give these a big big thumbs up.
Enjoy the sweet stuff.
