You can now get mocha-flavoured "Maltesers"

Order from Twisted London now!

Like Ant and Dec, Rick and Morty or Netflix and chilling, chocolate and coffee is a match made in heaven. Bittersweetness might sound like a bad thing, but this combo proves precisely the opposite. Sometimes, ingredients need a nemesis to bring the best out of each other. 

Unsurprisingly, there are hundreds of tasty treats that use the chocolate/coffee combo to their advantage. But, even in an overly saturated, caffeine-heavy market, some snacks are worth getting more excited over than others. Mocha-flavoured Maltesers definitely fall into this category. 

Sold by British souvenir specialists GB Gifts, the 140g packs are currently available as an import from Australia for £5.99. That might seem exorbitant for what could turn out to be a slightly acrid malt ball, but no one could accuse GB Gifts of lacking the courage of their convictions. According to the website:

“Combining everything you love about coffee and chocolate, the new Maltesers feature that same crispy malt centre you know and love, except this time it’s covered with smooth coffee-flavoured milk chocolate instead of normal chocolate.”

At the time of writing, GB Gifts currently has 30 of the packets in stock.

Despite the hefty price tag, the prospect of mocha Maltesers has clearly got potential customers seriously excited. A post on the GB Gifts Instagram account advertising the packets has already generated 450 likes in just a few hours, with one happy commenter declaring, “Ordered !! And buzzing for them.”

The new mocha bites aren’t the only reason for Maltesers fans to be in a good mood. Earlier this month, we reported on the release of an all-new Maltesers and Krispy Kreme collaboration that combined the chocolate with the iconic doughnut. If these new packs prove half as delicious, we’re in for a treat.
