Product Review: Coconut Secret Ecuadorian Crunch Chocolate Bar

13 May

Until very recently, I’ve never been much of a chocolate fan. I don’t know, it’s not that I hated chocolate, I could just kind of take it or leave it. And in most cases, if you offered me a choice between flavors, I’d pick “not chocolate.” But lately I’ve started to really appreciate chocolate, really, really good chocolate in particular, as a great not-too-terrible indulgence (as opposed to the gluten free lemon bar I ate earlier today, which was a straight-up quite bad for me indulgence).

So imagine my excitement when I found this:

Coconut Secret Ecuadorian Crunch chocolate bar — it has no soy, and it’s coconut-sugar sweetened! OMG! Hos is this possible!?!?!? It sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? The only thing that could possibly make this more paleo is if it were dairy free, and rest assured their other bars are, but I really, really wanted milk chocolate.

So, how does it stack up?

SO

AWESOME

Absolutely delicious. It has a wonderful flavor and mouth-feel, and the crunch is really appealing. I can’t detect any grittiness in the chocolate itself, but that may just be because there are all these other texture experiences going on. The flavor is the very best that milk chocolate can be, which to me is a very comforting taste.

I will definitely buy these again. It’s a little pricey (at my grocery store, $3.49/bar), but worth it.

Mostly putting this here as a reminder to myself — this is what I once packed for a road trip from Oregon to Vegas. This kept me from stopping for junk food along the way! Not pictured: some leftover roast pork with peach sauce that was also part of this food adventure.
