This stuff in identically-shaped tins has kept the Germans awake since the 30's. Scho-Ka-Kola is chocolate with lots of caffeine, essentially a mild combat drug!

Dark, bitter and strong chocolate. During WW2, Scho-Ka-Kola was a part of the aviator iron ration, and was widely issued alongside normal food distribution to the army. One can find mentions in contemporary soldiers' diaries of how they would despair at being issued Scho-Ka-Kola, since it invariably meant impending trouble. If you are expecting some kind of easter egg milk chocolate, this is not for you!

Made in Germany.

Some numbers and facts

Bittersweet chocolate (cocoa 57,3 % min.), with coffee and cola-nut powder. Ingredients: cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, coffee (2,6 %), whole milk powder, cola-nut powder (1,6 %), emulsifiers sunflower lecithin + E 476, flavour. May contain traces of hazelnuts, almonds and gluten.

Total Carbs 43,4g 2,7 g

4 pieces of Scho-Ka-Kola contain about as much caffeine as a strong espresso. Use with discretion. Really.

Ahkerana kahvinjuojana en saa tästä mitään pärinöitä, mutta ihan hyvää suklaata muuten. Purkki on kiva,kunnes niitä on kertynyt laatikollinen nurkkiin eikä keksi käyttöä.

- hyvää suklaata, parempi vaihto-ehto kahville
- noista rasioista saa mm. sopivia purkkeja kenkien hoitoon sulattamalla esim. dremelin kuuma-ilmasuuttimella valjasrasvaa
- näin niihin tulee jäähdyttyä ihan ammattimainen kiiltävä pinta (älä polta käsiäsi sitä ennen!)
- annoin yhden rasvapurkin joululahjaksi, joten piti tilata näitä lisää syöntiin & askarteluun...

Hyvää kamaa! 58-prosenttinen tumma suklaa on juuri sopivaa. Se ei ole liian makeaa mutta ei myöskään syömäkelvottoman tummaa.

Herkullisimmasta päästä mitä suklaisiin tulee. Muistuttaa kovasti säkkipussukoissa myytyjä kahvipapujen näköisiä suklaita! Tummuusaste on juuri sopiva. Lisäksi saa hyvän purnukan ruuvien ja nippelien säilytykseen, tai pienten tarvikkeiden mukana kuljettamiseen. Silkkaa voittamista.

Nice packaging, fits nicely in your pocket. 16 pieces in one tin can last a few weeks if you're patient with them. I recommend this to any and every kind of chocolate lover out there. Order two, because one won't be enough!

Okay, finally decided to get some. Came fast as always, but the whole caffeine thing seemed gimmicky to me.

So I had a couple of pieces at 20:00, the taste is simply wonderful. However. It is now 0500 and I'm lying in bed wide awake.

This isn't chocolate, this is rocket fuel in a tin!

Highly recommend to those who fall asleep easily. You wont sleep for a week.

Not as bitter as I was hoping for but I love it as a companion to my morning coffee. The dark is much better than the milk version in my opinion. I bought 2 darks and 1 milk chocolate and keep one in my truck. Shipping to the U.S. was quick and affordable will be ordering again.

I did an all-night "Goruck" event where your Scho-ka-kola was my whole team's salvation. At 3am it really perks you up. My teammates called it "the cocaine chocolate." PS-I also packed some of your fishcock along for the ride, just so I could say I was loaded down with a half-pound of cock.

I slightly prefer the sweeter and creamier milk chocolate version in a side by side taste test - but I think the original dark chocolate version has a much more pronounced "kick". The unique (by Canadian standards) and attractive packaging definitely makes it something of an attention grabber, as people wonder what it is. two or three pieces mixed with a small cup of hot milk tastes very good. Eaten from the can, it definitely helps keep me awake when I am in the field or working overnight. The Varusteleka price is great compared to North American prices. I am kicking myself now because I just put in a Varusteleka order for some other stuff (Smarma windproof smock and a Locksmith knife) and forgot to order a couple more cans. Damn.

Ordered a few cans after watching the review on InRangetv with Ian and Karl. I will be sure to order it by the boxload once my supply runs out. Good dark chocolate thats not overly bitter and man does it pack a punch. Great to have on a hike or in the car on long road trips. Very fast shipping to canada. I look forward to my next order and will have to add some other finish goodies to the shopping list

I don't even like coffee. I love these chocolates so much. Just for clarification, they come with 16 individual chocolates, 2 wheels of 8 pieces. Go ahead and order more than one tin though! Pro tip: I used my tin for keeping fish hooks, my friends think the German print on the tin was cool too.

Caffeine fortified dark chocolate, what's not to like?!



So according to the label 8 pieces = 1 cup strong coffee. Sounds like you are getting shafted but not when you look at caffeine half life int he body etc. Plan you consumption right and you are always just below peak caffination. Can I get a Hell Yeah!?! And it come on slow becsue it's bound up in a solid that you body has to make into a liquid, a smooth fade in with a manageable peak means very little of that too much coffee-dehydrated tweaked out feeling.



Now for the chocolate, I've only had the dark and I personally find it very tasty, a nice mellow espresso mocha tone and a good dark chocolate bite that's not Bakers Chocolate bitter, high 90's% cacao bars I'm looking right at you here, they aren't trying to fool you into accepting a lack of sugar masquerading as high cacao content.



I would recommend this to anyone who needs a pocket or bag stable pick me up treat or finds that a little taste of the magic is what you need to really focus at work. It tastes good, works well and does what the package says it does. I almost want to put a big rubber band around my hardhat just so I can wear a can as cool as the product photos. Also I should add it's not you, the can is unique and it will confuse everyone but you once you learn to open and close it just so. I can see these cans living a long and varied life in my collections of things as they stay closed, open effortlessly and are unique.

Great taste, like drinking coffee and eating dark chocolate at the same time. I surprisingly thought there was only 8 pieces for a little bit until i ran out of the top layer, saw the disc underneath the chocolate, went to move it and found 8 more. This stuff is no lie, it works great and tastes great too. Definitely buying more next time.

Be warned they are highly caffeinated.

An iconic chocolate and one of my favorites. I am very happy Varusteleka sells these to a very good price and sends them to the U.S. Ever since I came to the United States from Germany, I was looking for a reasonable priced source for Schokakola and finally found it in Varusteleka. When you grow up in Germany and serve in the Bundeswehr for quite some time, this chocolate becomes a custom. An 80-year old recipe, that is still my first choice. If you like chocolate and caffeine, this is for you.

I can recommend this as a new dad. Some mornings (or middays, afternoons or evenings) you just don't have the energy and will to make coffee so you eat some of these, and glad I started doing it! This is the only energy food besides coffee that I consume because nothing compares to it. It's decent chocolate that can get you through the day without tasting like cat piss (looking at you, energy drinks). So take it from me and stock some of this in your cupboard.

Love this stuff, and since the British Army unceremoniously got rid of the much beloved Duncans chocolate causing the company to go bust its my favourite energy boost when playing outside.
Nice retro tin; really hasn't changed much in 80 odd years, filled to the brim with a nice bitter dark caffeinated chocolate that looks like someones dipped a clay pigeon target in brown paint to make it harder to hit.
Has always seemed fairly shelf stable as it doesn't melt or bloom readily which makes it more of a morale booster when you crack open that iconic tin. I've sat at the top of a fair few mountains munching on a couple of blocks with a strong black coffee laced with whisky; this is the perfect accompaniment if you ask me. My climbing partners were always happy to see the red and white tin come out and would hover nearby so that they'd be offered a couple of pieces.
I've also tried the milk chocolate version and its nice but I prefer the dark one. Unfortunately I've never managed to try the milk chocolate hazelnut variant but will definitely buy some if you ever stock it!
The tin is handy for storing little small odd bits of kit like a sewing set or stove parts so they're worth holding onto.
As always you folks amaze me as to how quickly you get products out to customers, I had my latest batch delivered to my door here in the wilds of Scotland in a couple of days (along with my rather nice Krampus piggie patch). I'd decided to get a couple as stocking fillers for some friends Christmases.
Thanks again for the great service, I think the Advent Calendar you're running if good fun.
All the best and hope you all have a great Christmas and New Year
