ISO coffee bean shaped chocolate.


My boss is asking me to buy some coffee bean shaped chocolate, and they're supposed to taste like coffee. They are NOT chocolate-covered coffee beans.

Anyone know where I can buy a pack in Toronto area? My boss said Bulk Barn, but I'm not sure if I've ever seen them there. Thanks!

  1. I know exactly what you're looking for. They are quite shiny, dark brown and slightly larger than an actual coffee bean. Somewhat chocolate-coffee flavour. My mother used to use them to decorate a particular mocha torte she made. They used to be easy to find in supermarkets with a large kosher clientele - so Sobeys up on Clarke (between Bathurst and Yonge), for instance. Look in the kosher candy section. They come in round, flattish clear plastic packages - next to chocolate-covered nuts and fruits in the same kind of packaging. I wish I could be more specific than that but I haven't seen them in years. Well, actually, I haven't looked for them in years...

    1. they're called "mocha beans." i can't help you with Toronto, but maybe you can order from one of these places or at least use the info for reference...

      1. Please let us know if you locate them, I would love to know where to find them too.
