I saw two new nut-free chocolate bars today when I was at Costco. They are made by Nestle Canada in their nut-free plant here in Toronto:

1) Coffee Crisp French Vanilla

and

2) Coffee Crisp Triple Mocha

I tried the Coffee Crisp French Vanilla and I liked it. It is great that we have some more nut-free bars to enjoy.

(the other versions of Coffee Crisp are regular, orange, triple chocolate, and raspberry).

Triple Mocha Coffee Crisp? My word, that's obscene! I'm swooning.
Along those lines, DH found a White Chocolate Kit Kat from England at a local deli. Since Kevin shoveled our walk this morning, I think he deserves that treat later!

erik, excellent! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I can hardly wait to find the French Vanilla one. Yum.
A 9 year old is grocery shopping on a Saturday with her Mother 34 years ago (nearly 35 years ago). She has to continue to grocery shop with her Mother until the age of 14. She remembers this because an older boy at school, Brian Hurd worked at Dominion and saw her there with her Mom every Saturday and she was mortified.
At any rate, the 9 year old, at the check-out counter, decides that she's going to steal a chocolate bar. Her Mother catches her as they're leaving the store and marches the daughter right back up to the cashier and makes the daughter tell the story of how she stole the chocolate bar and apologize. Thus, the life of a young thief was halted (the child, who then became a woman, never stole again. Interestingly enough, her younger sister would go into Eaton's and Simpson's and steal all of the cosmetic samples [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img] )
Why the story?
The 9 year old girl stole a Coffee Crisp bar.
Her favourite bar back then. Her favourite bar now. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

Going Nuts, you could always call on some Canadian friends [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] to at least send you one sample bar so you can swoon and eat at the same time! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Hi all:
More exciting news for PA Canadian chocolate lovers -- I was at the drugstore this week and noticed that Nestle is selling Smarties and some of the other safe bars in cardboard heart packages for Valentines day. As at Hallowe'en, the packages are clearly marked with the "Safe to Share" logo.

erik, off topic. Do you drink Coke or Pepsi?
If you drink Coke, have you tried the Vanilla Coke? I have to say that I was going literally INSANE (more than usual [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] ) last summer when it came out because I love anything that says vanilla (I would have vanilla scented everything in my house if I could). At any rate, I finally tried it and I was SO disappointed.
I'm really hoping this doesn't happen with the French Vanilla Coffee Crisp. Now, I'm just going to have to find a place in Belleville that sells them. I still haven't found the Hershey's Krunch bar that you had mentioned for Jesse yet.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Sarah,
Thanks for the info on the Smarties. They are Dylan's favorites and he will be thrilled to get to share them on Valentines Day at school. We live in NJ but my in-laws live on the Canadian border and keeps us knee deep in candy! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I guess I didn't describe the Nestle valentine stuff too well. They are the large heart-shaped boxes that traditionally hold mixed chocolates. I don't know if they contain small packs of Smarties inside that could be shared with friends.
Just looked through a flyer and see that there is a 12-pack bag of Valentine Smarties available called the "Friendship Pack." The little boxes are the same size as the Halloween ones and the smarties are all red and pink. There also appear to be spaces for writing "to" and "from" on each box.

Hi Cindy,
That's an interesting story - how your life of crime was halted at the age of 9.. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] So you have been enjoying Coffee Crisp bars for a long time now.
Regarding Coke and Pepsi, I rarely drink pop (for any Americans who are reading this, substitute "soda" for "pop"). I occasionally have a glass of Pepsi/Coke when I eat pizza, but usually I prefer juice. Tropicana, Ocean Spray, etc... I am addicted to juice. I did try Vanilla Coke and it was okay.. but nothing amazing.
I think you'll like the French Vanilla Coffee Crisp. I like it very much.
If you have trouble finding it, why don't you go to the same store wheer you buy the Coffee Crisp raspberry. I am sure they would be happy to order a box of French Vanilla Coffee Crisp too.
Maybe they'll even order a box of Hershey Krackel (the nut-free version of Nestle Crunch).
I think you'll have better luck finding these bars in Belleville than you would have had if you had still been stuck in Stayner! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Thanks Hannah.
I'll ask my mother in law to look for both.
