For today’s “Black Friday” edition of Full Set Friday, I’m going to be looking at a small set of bars that were released by Russell Stover in early 2015, with flavors inspired by a quartet of hot beverages. I’m calling this set Russell Stover’s Big Bite Coffee House bars, so make the jump to check them out!
It was great to see Russell Stover release a thematic set of bars out of their Big Bite branding and I think the coffee house theme was a great choice. I hope that they will follow this up by tackling other non-seasonal-specific themed sets in the future. For now, let’s take a look at the four wrappers that comprise this set:
Russell Stover – Big Bite – House Blend Coffee – 2oz candy wrapper – 2015
Russell Stover – Big Bite – Caramel Latte – 2oz candy wrapper – 2015
Russell Stover – Big Bite – Cappuccino – 2oz candy wrapper – 2015
Russell Stover – Big Bite – Hot Cocoa – 2oz candy wrapper – 2015
It’s a nice little array of wrappers. I did sample all four of these bars and I have to say that my personal favorite was the Hot Cocoa bar, but then I’ve never been partial to coffee-flavored confections. I’d rather mix sweets into my coffee than coffee into my sweets.
For now, that’s everything I’ve got to share for this edition of Full Set Fridays and our quick look at Russell Stover’s Big Bite Coffee House bars. If you’re out shopping today, be safe and good luck. See you next time!

I used to find the Charles Russell Big Bite (dark chocolate/coffee) at local stores in central Indiana. Now I do not find any in those or other stores. It is still being made? Can this item be bought in larger amounts than singly?
