Don’t just drink your coffee. Eat it. A bag of joe can keep you going all day long.

Joe Chocolates Bits of Buzz mixes Seattle-roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate with real vanilla to create a satisfyingly crunchy bark with a buzz; one 2.5-ounce bag equals two cups of strong coffee.

Joe Chocolates started as a class project at UW in 2015 to help students get through finals. Now it’s a snack for everyone. Four locally handmade flavors are available: honey almond, salted caramel, midnight coconut and frosted peppermint.
