Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans
A delicious way to get AM or PM energy
My mother discovered similar chocolate covered espresso beans in Italy during a trip we took together 25 years ago. We both loved them: a coffee-break in a bag. I was ecstatic when I discovered I could get them for a Christmas treat from The Vermont Country Store. Everyone I've shared these espresso beans with has loved them because they combine two favorite tastes: coffee and dark chocolate. Please make them available year-round: I don't want to run out and I want to send some to friends.

Everyone at work really liked these little nuggets of energy - kinda like getting a small jolt from an espresso coffee - delicious.

Superb taste, great price
When I see the price of chocolate-covered espresso beans in coffee shops, candy stores, or anywhere else they're offered, I feel so lucky I can find them at VCS -- and the quality has been excellent each time I've ordered them, which wasn't the case when I got them in pricey little bags elsewhere. Always tasty, never crumbly, never stale, with a nice high-quality dark chocolate. TThey're so good, and there are enough in a bag, that if you get a last-minute invite to a party, you can decant some into a pretty container and have a house-gift that will be truly welcomed! This is a regular purchase for me.

My favorite thing to give as a gift
I try to get these as long as they are "in season." A favorite at my work site!

When I ordered the Dark Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans, my plans were to split the package with my best friend. Well---they are just too good to share! I told her how to order her own! Mean, I know but these beans are now my all time favorite!

Alarming the coffee beans
I made the critical mistake of taking my dark chocolate-covered espresso beans to work when they arrived. I gave a couple to a few selected friends. I hid them, they found them. If I had had to leave them there for longer than that day I would have had to put a silent alarm doggie fence around them. Thank you for the joy! Happy New Year!

These keep me awake. The dark chocolate blends in w/ the coffee bean. I intend on taking these on my air flight! Try freezing these they crunch better!

These are the best!
I've tried dark chocolate espresso beans from Trader Joe's and a local grocery store that sells bulk candy....they just don't compare. Vermont Country Store uses real Arabica coffee beans which gives you that wonderful taste. The aroma when you open the bag is heavenly. The beans average about 1/2" in size so it's a very satisfying 'fix' to just eat a couple. I will be ordering these again as gifts!
