Coffee crisp

Someone I know just shared this photo of the Uk/Ireland grocery shelf in her supermarket in Boston.

A coffee crisp! “It was briefly introduced to the United Kingdom in 1961, but Rowntree feared it was too similar to Kit Kat” (i’ve also learned whilst looking into this that Canadians call honeycomb ‘sponge toffee’ - good grief, that is not a pleasant name)

I know my brother’s supermarket section in Florida sell crumpets as he always posts about it. Will have to ask what rogue delights have made their way through too.

What’s in a shepherds pie mix? Just an oxo cube?

Had coffee crisp when I was in Canada and loved them, coffee and chocolate is one of my favourite food pairings.

Never heard of a Coffee crisp before now but would absolutely love to try one! Sounds great.

Do they not have mustard in America?!

Also, bloody hell that’s grim. South Asian Brits doing their best to save us some face with a nice big sack of rice at least. Or is it just wrongly shelved?
