Kopiko (an Indonesian coffee company) produces among other coffee-related items, a couple of delicious coffee flavored candies. These candies are claimed by many to be the best tasting coffee candies on the market. After gaining a large following of fans in various Asian countries, Kopiko candy is now available in many different countries and is become more popular worldwide. If unavailable in the major supermarkets in your local area, look out for these candies in some of the smaller specialty Asian groceries that happen to stock confectionery. The green grocer just happens to stock them in the suburb I live in, go figure. There are two varieties available, a Black Coffee and Cappuccino flavor.


Black Coffee Flavor

These black coffee flavored, individually wrapped candies by Kopiko have a delicious bittersweet taste. The are rich, flavorsome and aromatic but not overpowering or too bitter. The flavor is very close to real coffee due to the real coffee extract that is used in their recipe. They are a hard candy that you suck on to dissolve with a smooth velvety texture. This was the first and most readily available flavor and comes highly recommended. Apparently eating five of these candies gives you an equivalent caffeine hit to drinking a cup of coffee, so be carefully when snacking on them too late at night if you don't want bags under your eyes the next day. They're great while on the road where you can't easily brew yourself a cup.

The ingredients as listed are: Sugar, Glucose, Vegetable Oil, Coffee Extract, Butter, Emulsifier, Caramel (Coloring I assume), Salt, Flavor.


Cappunncino Flavour

There are a couple of differences between the Cappuccino and Black Coffee flavored Kopiko candies. First the Cappuccino ones are round, while the Black Coffee ones are rectangular in shape. The second difference (which influences the taste more) is that the Cappuccino ones are half coffee and half cream. The result of this is that some of the richness of the Black Coffee candies is replaced by a smoother, more creamy flavor. Although different and perhaps appealing to slightly different tastes, I highly recommend both varieties to anyone wishing to try them.

The ingredients as listed are: Sugar, Glucose Syrup, Vegetable Oil, Milk Powder, Coffee Extract (2.45%), Butter, Salt, Soya Lecithin E 322, Flavour, Caramel Colour (E 150d), Vanillin.
