Where can I find Coffee Crisp in SF?

manraysky Jul 1, 2008 09:48 PM

The recent post about British foods got me thinking about my Canadian boyfriend's favorite candy bar, Coffee Crisp. There is some overlap with Canadian and British foods, but I've never seen Coffee Crisp at any British food shops.

Has anyone seen these delicious bars anywhere in the city or elsewhere?

    I bought one myself at the Powell's Sweet Shoppe in Los Gatos...there are several Powell's around CA:

      It has been sometime since I was last there, but I think Fog City had them

        I've been getting them at Grocery Outlet of all places, about 50 cents a bar. I am in L.A. right now so I go to the Buena Park store, but all the stores have mostly the same stock. There are stores all over but closest to SF is I think the Berkeley store and then the Oakland one. Good luck.

          Cost Plus World Market

            Thanks for all the suggestions. I've looked at Cost Plus in SF and never saw them there, but it's worth another look. And I've never heard of Powell's, I'll definitely check that out.

              I've seen them in the Five and Dime/Ace Hardware store in Laurel Village. Patrick's & Co (stationary shop) near Embarcadero also carried this. Fog City considerably marks up the price of their candy so I would definitely check out Five & Dime or Patrick's instead.

                  I've seen them at this little liquor store on Haight Street. I believe it's called Sunshine Market and it's on the corner of Peirce and Haight next to Axum Cafe. Also if you are in the neighborhood, Falletti's carries an assortment of English candybars. Falletti's is located on Broderick between Fell and Oak streets.

                    There is a corner market on 9th Avenue and Kirkham Street in San Francisco that has alot of British snack foods. You could check with them?

                        Fiona's Sweetshoppe might have them.
