Being the fully pledged chocoholic that I am, I was really looking forward to chomping into a bar of Fazer’s Coffee Crisp chocolate when I got to Helsinki but less than an hour after my arrival, I was told the heart-breaking news that Fazer don’t make it any more. My trip was to be Coffee Crisp-less.
Instead, the shelves of Stockmans were loaded up with a whole load of flavours I’ve not seen before, such as Walnut Crunch and Lontoo rae – the latter being chocolate with licorice bits mixed into it.
Now, when it comes to chocolate, I like to leave no bar untasted but I have to confess that the idea of a chocolate/licorice combination really didn’t appeal. Still, I have a curious mind so bought a couple of bars – one for me and one as a gift.
A week later and both bars are gone. Damn stuff was bizarrely delicious and I feel no guilt whatsoever at eating that second bar.
So if anyone who works at Fazer is reading this: PLEASE get your company to start selling chocolate in the UK. Now that Cadbury’s have gone to the dark side, we really need you and your imaginative combinations.
