Coffee Crisp Ice Cream Bars Review

Last week on the blog I reviewed the Costco Kirkland Signature Beef Polish Sausages and the new Costco Taylor Farms Ultimate Caesar Salad Kit

Today I’m reviewing the Nestle Coffee Crisp Ice Cream Bars from Costco! Did you know that Coffee Crisp isn’t available in the United States? Lucky us!

The box comes with 20 individually packed ice cream bars, each bar is 80 milliliters and I paid $16.99 Canadian for the box which isn’t cheap at all but it will be cheaper than buying one bar at your local convenience store or from the ice cream man.

Each bar is individually wrapped which makes these easy to store in your freezer. They’re great for a snack on a hot summer day or to offer guests if you’re hosting a barbecue. Unfortunately these may contain peanuts and tree nuts which may make it hard to offer to all the neighborhood kids!

One bar is 190 calories, 11 grams of fat, 21 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre,16 grams of sugar, two grams of protein and 50 mg of sodium. Obviously these aren’t healthy for you. The ingredients list is quite long with a lot of ingredients I don’t love like carrageenan and palm oil.

I find the coffee flavor really subtle in these bars, I taste more chocolate than any coffee flavor. The one thing that does make these taste like Coffee Crisp is the little chunks of wafer that are in the chocolate coating.

The coffee ice cream in the bar is pretty yummy and has a sweet but very mild Coffee Crisp flavor. I found the vanilla ice cream doesn’t taste like much. The chocolate on the outside is pretty tasty and tastes like it’s decent quality. If you look at the bars as just an ice cream bar they’re really tasty but if you’re a huge Coffee Crisp fan (like me) and want a frozen dessert replica of the chocolate bar, these aren’t that.

Cost: 6.5/10

Convenience:10/10

Nutrition: 0/10

Taste: 7.5/10

  1. Thanks for the review.

    I’m curious, and I don’t mind the hint of coffee. It is on sale this week. I might buy it to try.

    What I find frustrating is the measurement used: 80 ml. The bar is now a solid. I think it should be in grams. So many times I pick up a carton of ice cream, and it’s light but has the same “litre” size over another brand that is noticeably heavier (and more expensive).

    In general, if “junk food” like ice cream is not sold in the US, it’s not good enough for the vast US market especially from such a manufacturer like Nestle.

  2. Hawkins is such an unethical company in my opinion. Long ago when every manufacturer and even cities were warning us about trans fat especially oil, changing their recipe, and even banning trans fats, Hawkins was gaslighting their position when countless customers voiced their concerns.

    Here we are now, 20+ years later. Hawkins no longer uses trans fat. Their cheezies do taste different compared to the trans fat version. It’s also significantly saltier. So much that we can’t eat them.

    By and large, the US is superior when it comes to “junk food” compared to Canada. But some are too patriotic and loyal to acknowledge that.

  3. Re Coffee Crisp not being available in USA. Every time my American family visit in Canada, they load up on our chocolate bars to take home (they call them “candy bars”). Having visited USA several times, I can see why! And introduced them to (Hawkins) Cheezies and amazed them with the deliciousness. Only available in Canada, you say?
