Italian espresso filled candy

I'm new here. I'm looking for the name of (and a way of getting my hands on) a candy I've only found in a gas station in Italy. It is chocolate filled with a shot of espresso. Not espresso flavored cream, or ganache or liqueur... just espresso. In order to hold the liquid the chocolate had quite a snap to it, but it as well was nothing but chocolate. Chocolate and espresso... nothing else.

    It's called Pocket Coffee and is made by Ferrero. There are several places where you can order online.

      My Italian friend brought back some of these delicious treats for my boyfriend and I. I loved them but now I know what I am missing since there is no source to feed this new found addiction...curse her!
