Pocket Coffee is on my list of top 5 candies. In fact, if given a choice, I’d probably rank Pocket Coffee as #1 because of rarity. Pocket Coffee is made in Italy at the Ferro factory in Alba, Piedmont, Italy and is sold mostly in Italy and Germany.
So what is it? Italian Espresso covered in bittersweet chocolate. I’m not sure how else to describe it but it’s chocolate candy with an espresso (liquid coffee) center and I think there’s some kind of wafer/praline something.
This candy wakes you up or keeps you awake all day. At first, it’s very unusual taste/sensation where you’re expecting a chewy or soft center but after the first bite a release of espresso fills your mouth with coffee goodness.
The taste of coffee is pretty intense so it’s not for the faint of heart. However, the chocolate creates a nice balance to the coffee.
