Candy Review: Delacre Crepes au Chocolat

Delacre Crepes au Chocolate Closeup
It’s not often that I eat a candy which leaves me speechless (unless you count an Atomic Fireball or something which causes pain and renders you mute). My Mom brought me a box of Delacre Crepes au Chocolat from the US and after eating only one, I knew I had finally found my first candy worthy of the CandyAddict.com Awesomely Addictive candy award.

The Crepes au Chocolat are a wafer-thin layer of crepe, folded over itself and then dipped in chocolate. I tried the milk chocolate variety, but they also come in dark chocolate. About the size of a small lighter, the crepes have a gorgeous, crispy texture. They taste a bit caramelized – similar to hand made waffle cones. It almost tastes like someone has pounded a waffle cone into wafer thin pieces and then dipped it in chocolate.

Crepes Au ChocolatThe chocolate itself is Belgian, smooth, delicious and it melts nicely on the tongue. The crepes are nicely dipped, too – the amount of coating is not so thick as to overpower the crispiness of the crepe, but not so thin that you feel it’s more cookie than candy. I highly recommend popping one of these into your mouth whole – trying to eat it in more than one bite just leaves you with a shirt full of crispy crepe dust.

The Crepes au Chocolat are so easy to eat, I motored through an entire sleeve of them in only a few minutes (gluttony, I know…). Luckily Mom came armed with a giant tin of them which had five sleeves inside – so everyone else got to try one before I quickly hid the tin in the back of the cupboard. These babies were mine, all mine!

Delacre makes a number of different Belgian treats. Originally a chocolate company based in Brussels, the Delacre company now concentrates mostly on gourmet cookies and treats which involve chocolate in some form or another. Based on this product, I’d love to try some of their other delicacies.

Before you go thinking that I am a fancy-schmancy chocolate snob (these being Belgian and all) let me just say in my defense that my Mom bought these… at Costco. If I were you, I’d RUN to your nearest Costco and buy yourself some (or pick some up at Amazon.com), because these are truly the best chocolate things I’ve eaten in a very long while. Therefore, it gives me great pleasure to give these my very first bit of Awesomely Additive love:

    OMG, we were gifted these during the holiday season and I could NOT leave them alone! The flavor itself is fairly good, though the quality of chocolate is a few notches above average, but it’s that delicate, tissue-thin, crispity texture of the buttery cocoa crepes against the unctuous chocolate that had me polishing off an entire sleeve in one sitting.

    What’s even more awesome about the fact that it comes from Costco is its econo-sizing, which means you don’t have to mourn an hour later the fact that an entire sleeve of these babies are gone. Cuz there’s more…

    Taste awesome on top of ice cream, by the way. Shattered and scattered all over the top. Man, I’m craving these so bad now…!

    Wow, if I saw these I wouldn’t think they were that good! I’ll keep an eye out for these and give ‘em a try if I spot them.

    OK, uhh, confession time (again, sigh): I snarfed up two sleeves. In one sitting. Dang, I couldn’t help myself, I’m a texture freak and thin, crispy layers of anything are a weakness, but to cover that with just the right amount of yummy chocolate? The deal was done before I even got home! Well, one sleeve in the car, one at home (it was a long ride home? I was extra hungry? Dang, none of those are true). I have to just keep facing the hard fact that I’m a candy addict! Not that I find this to be a problem, mind you, nor do I need a 12-step group, thankyouverymuch. I just love my candy and sweet stuff. A lot!

    (For those who love these crepes, there is a non-chocolate covered Japanese crepe that has the same thin, crispy-all-over-your-shirt layers, but larger and coming in different Japanese flavors like sesame, coconut, dried fish floss – it’s not fishy, really! – and plain egg. They are very sweet, VERY crispy and have many, many thin layers. Bigger than the chocolate Belgian ones, but oh-so addictive, too. I don’t have a box to give you the name – uhh, I ate them – but you can look for them where Japanese stuff is sold; there is a photo of the crepes on the box’s cover. Mmmmm!)

    The US website is: http://www.delacre.com/. However, that probably won’t do you much good either, as much of it seems broken. Perhaps they’ll fix it soon!

    I love, love, love these. I live in suburban Chicago and I usually find them at the Pepperidge Farm outlet store right before Christmas. Both Pepperidge Farm and Delacre are owned by the Campbell Soup Company. The only problem is I checked at the outlet this past Friday (12/5) and they did not have them yet. GOOD LUCK in finding them–they are totally worth it.

    I’ve noticed Delacre items in the circulars for Walgreens drug store. I haven’t been to the store to confirm that they have this variety, but it really would be worth checking there if you have a store and you’re looking for them. They seem to have a lot of fancy confections and biscuits at Christmastime.

    Don’t let the secret out….it will mean all the more for us! Crepes au Chocolat are absolutely THE BEST cookie ever made. A friend gave me some for Christmas two years ago…and I refused to let the tin be thrown away for fear I’d forget the name and never find them again. Magnific!
