Everyone knows someone who will happily root around a box of chocolates, looking for the coffee-flavoured variety.
It could even be you who loves coffee sweets. But for coffee lovers and connoisseurs, none are better than Whitakers Coffee Creams, the famous coffee cream chocolates loved across the UK and beyond.
They’re a delicious, luxurious blend of sumptuous coffee flavour, enveloped in fine vegan chocolate and delivered to you in a beautiful, 100% recyclable box.
But where do coffee cream chocolates come from, and are coffee flavoured chocolates as popular as they once were? Let’s take a closer look…
In the 17th and 18th centuries, English businessmen flocked to the wildly popular coffee houses to sip the beverage, which was thought to have medicinal properties.
Nobody really knows when the fondant at the heart of Whitakers coffee creams was first made, but it is generally thought it emerged in France in the mid-19th century, when bakers had access to lots of refined, granulated sugar.
The word fondant comes from the French ‘fondre’ or to melt, and describes the key characteristic of the tempting coffee creams.
Someone somewhere clearly had the bright idea of combining the two ingredients, covering them in chocolate and voila! The coffee cream was born.
There’s so much more to these coffee cream sweet treats than the ingredients list, but let’s go through the composition of these delicious coffee creams.
The creamy, rich fondant in these smooth coffee cream chocolates is a mix of sugar, glucose syrup and water, while the vegan dark chocolate coating contains cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter and soya lecithin as an emulsifier.
There’s the all-important coffee flavour, while plain caramel provides the colour. Although Whitakers coffee cream chocolates are gluten and palm oil free, they do contain soya, as well as traces of lactose and nuts.
Of course it’s a vegan product so you can indulge yourselves without a hint of guilt, while the chocolate is made with FairTrade cocoa.

It may surprise anyone whose sweet tooth runs to delicious, creamy coffee treats, slathered in milk chocolate or dipped in indulgent dark chocolate, that not every box of chocolates contains a coffee version.
We know, we know – it’s a tragedy! Savouring that delicious chocolate coffee cream taste, the process of allowing a rich, creamy filling to melt in your mouth has to be one of life’s most amazing pleasures.
So imagine how disappointed we were, the last time we received a chocolate gift box, to find our favourite coffee flavour missing in action.
If you’re planning on splashing out on this colourful product, thinking it has chocolate coffee creams nestled inside its pouches or tins, we’re sorry to say you’re going to be disappointed.
It was removed from the selection years ago but there are calls on social media to reinstate the delicious coffee cream.
Nope – and it’s not just home-grown coffee cream lovers who are left empty-handed. Fans in Australia and New Zealand buying tins or jars for birthdays or Christmas also don’t get to sink their teeth into that tasty chocolate covered coffee centre.
