Here's what ours says:
"Sugar, enriched flour (wheat flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), vegetable oils (palm, sunflower, and/or safflower), nonfat milk/dairy product solids, chocolate, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, milkfat, coffee, reduced minerals whey, lactose, baking soda, artificial flavors, yeast, PGPR - an emulsifier."
There are no contains, may contains, or processed on or in statements below the ingredients.

interesting...no "shea oil" like the canadian counterpart.
We had some of the canadian ones down here in Tucson sometime last year in our Costplus World Imports store --- Made in Canada label and everything. Had the 'shea oil' ingredient.
Seems the US version uses palm oil.
I'm wondering if palm and shea are interchangeable and are actually the same thing?
But please, let's not start the shea discussion again...I'm just interested in the differences of palm and shea.
very interestink!

Hi Adrienne,
My guess would be that perhaps Coffee Crisp did include shea oil at one time. However, product ingredients often change over time, so it looks like they are made with palm, sunflower and safflower oil.
Your Coffee CRisp bars would be the same as the ones we buy in Canada, as there is only one Coffee Crisp manufacturing facility in the world, located here in Toronto, and it is nut-free, peanut-free.
*************
Palm oil and shea oil are different products.
Palm oil is a form of edible vegetable oil obtained from the fruit of the Oil palm tree.
Shea butter is a slightly greenish natural fat extracted from fruit of the Shea tree by crushing and boiling. Shea butter is edible. It is consumed in traditional cuisine and used in the chocolate industry as a substitute for cocoa butter.

I was looking for these in Wegman's yesterday but I didn't see them. Maybe they just haven't reached the mid-adlantic yet!

No luck here. I looked at the Target in Lafayette Indiana and they didn't have any (that I could find-I looked in the candy aisles and also by the registers).

Oops! sorry for the typo! I meant "mid-atlantic"...at least it wasn't one of those x-rated typos like one not too long ago by another member! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img]

The following chains are all carrying Coffee Crisp in the USA:
Dollar Tree, Edy Brown, Wegmans, Fred Meyer, Penn Traffic, Klein Candy, Meijer, Sheetz.
It is also being carried at other stores too. If your local store does not carry it, you can request that they order it (as most stores do carry Nestle products)
The following web site has more info:
