Did somebody already post about this and I missed it? Since when is Coffee Crisp available in the U.S.? We found it in the 7-11 around the corner from us (in Chicago). My son was really excited because we used to get them when we visited Canada and once Erik mailed some to us.

My son keeps going back to the 7-11 to buy one every day. I wonder if these are now widely available in the U.S.

I can't remember when it started. Maybe a few months ago? Or longer? Anyway. We can't find it locally. I can find it in a Dollar Tree about an hour away so we stop and pick some up there when we're in that town. I've read here that they're mostly available at convenience stores (like the 7-11 you found it in) and Dollar Tree.

It's great to see Coffee Crisps in the US! I just wish we liked them haha [img][/img] Too bad we couldn't get the Canadian nut free Mars bar. I have been buying Coffee Crisps and giving them to people simply to support the nut free candy bar.

Jackson's Mom, yes they are safe! They are one of the Nestle Canada chocolate bars made in a nut free plant. We used to stock up on them during trips to Canada. My son absolutely loves them, even though he's not a coffee drinker (11 years old).

Didn't these have shea oil in them? Maybe it was safflower? I don't know. But I bought out Dollar Tree a few months back but got sick of them lol.

I love Coffee Crisps. If anyone finds them in eastern Massachusetts, please let me know. I always check for them whenever I'm near a candy display, but I've never seen them locally.

Here is the web site that helped make Coffee Crisp available in the USA:
It also has info which shops carry Coffee Crisp, and how to get it ordered at stores in your area.

For anyone interested, I found them today at the Newbury Comics in Natick, MA. I'd looked there before, and never seen them, but today was my lucky day.
They're $0.99 each. I bought 4!

Just found the regular sized (not snack size). These are not labeled peanut free, like the snack-sized bar, but have not peanut or nut warning on the label. Are these considered safe also?
