Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans Review

While you might think that this is a strange review to have on a hiking page bear with me and read on. I first discovered Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans over 20 years ago and I still love them just as much as the first time I had them. Whenever I drop into to Haig’s Chocolates I will always buy a pack to take away with me. I am surprised at how many coffee lovers have yet to discover them.

For me they perform two functions. Firstly the combination of dark chocolate and coffee beans is amazing with the sweatiness of the chocolate glancing the bitterness of the coffee beans, and as such they make an excellent snack and a unique one.

The main reason I have reviewed these is as a coffee substitute. If you can’t be bothered making coffee on a hike but still want that caffeine hit then these are for you. I remember the first time I had them and made the mistake of eating the whole 200 gram bag in under an hour; they’re just that moorish. The problem with doing that was this is about as close as you get to injecting caffeine directly into your system. They are digested very quickly and it doesn’t take long at all for the caffeine to be absorbed. I think I was vibrating for about two days after and I didn’t sleep well that night. Lesson learnt, ration them!

If you haven’t discovered these yet give them a try on your next hike.
