Candy Review: Chargers Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans

Categories: Candy,Candy Reviews,Candy with Caffeine,Chocolate Candy


Eating a coffee bean sounds a little weird at first, but when you coat it with dark chocolate and a candy shell… a whole new world can open up to you. Chargers Candy sent me a free sample of one of their battery-shaped tins of Chargers Chocolate Espresso Beans (“Get Charged”), and I am really buzzing while I write this.

First off, the packaging is really cool! I love it. A red and black battery is a great idea for the packaging of a caffeinated coffee product. I like coffee and I like chocolate, so I was really looking forward to trying these out.

All of the candies are bright, energy-filled, red. I started by popping one in my and suckling it to taste the candy shell. It tastes a lot like an M&M. Then I started to taste the chocolate. I was somewhat surprised to find that it was dark chocolate. The chocolate quickly melted and I was left with a naked coffee bean in my mouth. Then the thought occurred to me, “Maybe I should have just chewed the whole thing together. This might not taste good by itself.” I bit down. It wasn’t as bitter as I expected, but I did get a ground coffee flavor in my mouth.

Next, I grabbed 2 Chargers beans and popped them in my mouth and chewed. Much better. Dang good too! The coffee beans don’t taste bad (when they have candy and chocolate on them). I have had bad milk-chocolate covered beans before, but there wasn’t a bad bean in this bunch at all. Next thing I knew. I had finished the whole battery-shaped tin of them.

These would make great stocking stuffers for the coffee lover in your life or anyone that loves coffee and chocolate. The packaging is cute and the product is tasty. Now, I’m all buzzzzzy. Too bad I need to go to bed in an hour.

    I originally didn’t think coffee beans were edible by themselves. (Although I read the book “The Coffee Trader” when a character mistaken eats coffee beans before realizing they’re meant to be seeped).

    But I was driving home late from Thanksgiving and deciding I didn’t want to keep drinking liquids (coffee/espressos) I decided to buy some of the Starbucks variety of choc. cover espresso beans. I decided I liked crunching through the beans. The chocolate was very pedestrian.

    I don’t know if it really kept me awake though. Since I didn’t crash the car however maybe that’s a good sign they really are caffienated.

    I was wondering where the Chargers are manufactured? The USA??
    Very interested in purchasing a case of them for an upcoming trade show but I would prefer buying only if made in the US.
    Would appreciate an answer.
    Thank You Very Much.
