Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:3.4 ounce netted bags, nice novelty gift, cheap.
Cons:Seasonal item, not straight milk chocolate.
The Bottom Line: Instead of just chucking coal in their stocking opt for an edible version.

No one likes to be on the naughty list, well, almost no one. Palmer's Double Crisp Coal is a cute edible novelty for those who have been bad enough to be shunned off the "good list" but still deserve something a little sweet. The black wrapped pieces of 'double crisp' come in a red netted bag that's cinched at the top and bottom. These can be hard to open without scissors so don't try to rip them apart or chew through the netting. There is a tag attached to the bag that you can remove if you want to put the sack in a stocking but you can just as easily remove the lumps from the bag and leave them around the house or use them on cookie trays.
R.M. Palmer's version of a double crisp is the same as a Nestle Crunch Bar; milk chocolate and puffed rice mixed together to provide something sweet but with a little bit of a crunch to it. Palmer is one of the larger names in seasonal candy but they also have licenses for NASCAR and animated characters. About the only downside to the Double Crisp Coal is that the pieces are not safety sealed; they are wrapped securely but they are not tamper proof. Check the netted bag before purchasing and never open one that has been previously opened. Since these are a seasonal item they are only going to be around for the Christmas season; they were originally priced at .79 cents then dropped to .40 cents after Christmas. If you like Palmer's Double Crisp Coal you can still get it almost year round but in different packaging formats.
The bags are sold by weight so you can get nine or ten pieces per sack; when you take off the wrapper you see a five sided piece of smooth chocolate but when you flip it over you see the 'crisp' of it. The entire piece is double crisp but the face of it is smooth. All of the pieces are the same shape but some of them are a little thicker than others so that's why some bags might have nine pieces and some might have ten pieces. The nutritional values for this are not printed on the tag; I went back to the store to see if they were on the box but none of the boxes were there as everything had been moved to the clearance section and were tossed in to carts or plastic totes.
Even though these are seasonal items they are something that's cheap and can make for a nice prank before you give someone their actual gift. A lot of people dismiss Palmer as being a bottom shelf chocolate company but I would bet my last dollar that if you put a Nestle Crunch Bar next to a piece of Palmer's Double Crisp you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Palmer is a local Pennsylvania company that uses in-state products to manufacture their goods. The Double Crisp contains dairy products so it is not vegan friendly and the tag carries the allergy warning that it is manufactured on equipment that also processes wheat, peanut butter and tree nuts. Please read the bag of the tag before purchasing if you have food allergies as they can change the ingredients from time to time.
