Waterbridge Sponge Toffee Review

Last week on the blog I reviewed the Costco Ozery Seedwise Keto Clusters, Costco Parm Crisps Snack Mix and the Costco Kirkland Signature Dark Chocolate Covered Mangoes

Today I’m reviewing the Waterbridge Sponge Toffee Bites from Costco! I thought these looked tasty during my recent trip to Costco and I’ve never had anything like them so picked them up.

I paid $9.89 Canadian for the 800 gram of chocolate coated sponge toffee. This is around the same price point of the other snacks in the snack aisle at the front of Costco.

The bag is resealable which I appreciate because that keeps my toffee fresh for longer! The best before date is about 10 months from the date we purchased the toffee. I think this would be awesome to bring camping or just have as a snack around the house.

A one third of a cup serving is 230 calories, seven grams of fat, 40 grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fibre, 33 grams of sugar, two grams of protein and 65 mg of sodium. The ingredients list contains lots of sugar! The sponge toffee is definitely not a healthy food. The label states it “may contain” peanuts and tree nuts so be cautious if you’re allergic.

The texture of these bites is quite hard and definitely crunchy. The toffee inside is light in flavor but the overall bite is hard and crunchy. The outside layer of milk chocolate isn’t very thick so the milk chocolate dominates. If you’re a fan of Crunchie chocolate bars, these taste similar but like a higher quality Crunchie. The chocolate isn’t the best I’ve had but it is pretty tasty and I love that these are bite sized. The sponge toffee is delicious.

In summary, the combination of milk chocolate and sponge toffee is addictive. If you’re a fan of Crunchie chocolate bars, definitely pick these up!

  1. We were at Costco today. Our location has an asterisk next to the price of these toffee chunks. While the price did not end in .97, the asterisk (*) means the item is being discontinued from Costco.

    It appears Maya was correct in her opinion these toffee bites will be gone soon. What else do you think might be disappearing from Costco soon, besides seasonal items?

  2. Majority rules? I think it’s true here. Are these toffee bites superior to Cadbury Crunch bars? Not in my opinion. They’re much sweeter and missing that wonderful light but flavourful crunch you get with the Cadbury Crunch bar. The chocolate in these toffee bites seem to dominate unlike with the Crunchy bar.

  3. Agree with Reb and Maya! This item was disappointing. I also bought it thinking it’ll be similar texture and “crisp” to a Crunchie bar and was sad to find out that wasn’t the case. My significant other who will normally eats everything refused to consume this. Lol.

  4. This one is good, but sorry (not sorry) they are not as good as Cadbury Crunchy bars. I agree with Reb, the Costco Waterbridge toffee tastes somewhat stale and hard.

    With the original Crunchy, it has the perfect balance of crunchiness, lightness, freshness, and chocolate unlike the Waterbridge version. While these are a (half-decent) substitute, the original Crunchy remains the best. I expect them to go on clearance, do not order in the coming months.

    I’ll try the Ikea Diam. Thanks for mentioning it Reb.

    As a kind suggestion to Natalie, I’d stick with reviewing savoury items at Costco. Leave the deserts or sweets to someone else.

  5. I think Ikea Diam is much more superior to this Waterbridge Sponge Toffee. I found it awfully hard and a little stale.Maybe it was package my sample came from. In my opinion Ikea Diam is better.
