Five Chocolate Bars Only Sold in Canada

There are certain types of chocolate bars only sold in Canada. If you’re curious on what sweets you might be missing out on, then feel free to read on and enjoy.

Big Turk

This as you can see is called a “Big Turk” chocolate bar made by Nestle Canada. The inside of this chocolate bar contains what is called a “Turkish Delight” which is like a chewy fruit centre surrounded by milk chocolate. Not a favorite chocolate bar of mine but many other Canadians love it mainly because it’s low fat.

Crispy Crunch

This is another one of Canada’s favorite chocolate bars that I couldn’t believe was only sold here. That wasn’t always the case though because this chocolate bar states in the research it was sold in the States for a brief time in the 90’s until the company that owned that bar went bankrupt and sold to Cadbury. For those of you who don’t know and are curious what it is made out of well it’s a hard chocolate bar with a peanut flake inside that can’t be beat.

Eat More

Research on this particular chocolate was vague, but according to history it’s only sold here in Canada but consider yourself lucky because in my opinion this is one of the most disgusting chocolate bars I ever had. As of this date it’s made by Hershey Canada, and is dark toffee mixed with peanuts and chocolate.


Now if you have ever visited Canada then chances are you have spotted this chocolate treat on just about every store shelves. Glosette’s come in chocolate covered peanuts as well as chocolate covered raisins and almonds. This particular snack is now made by Hershey Canada.

Coffee Crisp

So this is the list but please keep in mind some of the facts I might have come across could be possibly out dated but these 5 are the one’s I’m sure are only sold in Canada.

    I work at a grocery “outlet” and we have gotten the Coffee Crisp candies here at our store a couple of times. I don’t remember seeing them anywhere else in any of the other states I’ve been too. [I live/work in Pennsylvania]

    Thanks for the comment Allison. Your right after publishing the article I found out there where certain parts of the states that do from time to time get some of these chocolate bars I wrote about. I must have gotten a bit of my info from an outdated site. Sorry hope you enjoyed it anyways. Thanks

    We have the Coffee Crisp bars here in Detroit, but typically only at the “mom and pop”/corner store places

    Great article.

    There is actually a market in Cincinnati, Ohio called Jungle Jim’s. It has foods from every country including Canada. I’ve seen some of these there.

    It usually takes me 5 hours to shop since the size of the market is over 10 football fields

    One more to add to your list: Cherry Blossoms – only available in Canada – basically a jumbo chocolate covered cherry.

    You have totally answered my question! And I agree – Eat More is truly one of the nastiest “chocolate” bars one could ever eat. I’m also taking a pass on the Big Turk!

    I am fron Canada and I can tell you we have some nasty chocolate bars. Big Turk is the most vile thing you will ever want to taste and if it is stale the choclate cracks off and you are left with a slab of nasty jelly (either green or red – they come in two flavours), And those chocolate covered cherrie blossoms in the little yellow box, again, WTF were they thinking. They are always on the bottom shelf and the box has a one inch layer of dust on it, Bottom-shelvers would be Eat More, Big Turk, Pep (big nasty chocolate coverd mint), and glossette raisins (eew), But far and away, Big Turk or Big Turd, as I call them, are nasty. Coffee Crisp also pretty lame…

    I Live in a tiny town called Sundridge, in Ontario, Canada. Yes crunchie chocolates are both available and a favorite. But I dont know if they are exclusive to Canada! But lets face it, each country has it’s ’special’ chocolates. I love ‘wienbrandboenen’ and rumbonen’, both of which come from Holland. And the always popular ‘ice chocolates’ which originate from Germany. Each chocolate has a distinct flavor, depending on the country that processed the cocoa into chocolate.
