I know it’s supposed to be the month of health — and behind the scenes it is, I promise. But I just couldn’t go to Canada as I did, without indulging in what is truly the best candy bar in the world — The COFFEE CRISP! The Coffee Crisp is like a giant Kit Kat bar only 100 times better. Mild coffee cream sandwiched between sweet flaky layers of wafer cookie, enrobed in milk chocolate. It’s a heavenly combination.
While in Toronto, i also searched for another childhood favorite Canadian sweet treat, to no avail — Mackintosh Toffee. Nobody I asked had ever heard of it, yet I recall eating the slabs of chewy toffee that came wrapped in a red tartan plaid cardboard sleeve like it was yesterday. Oh, Canada! Anybody know what became of it?
