Coconut from: Lily’s Dark Chocolate

So I’m a couple days late on my next review. But this one was well worth the wait!

Coconut by Lily’s Dark Chocolate

Color/Appearance~7.5/10

This bar lacks the deep smooth brown of other dark chocolate, however being a %55 cocoa it seems right on par . The repeated stamped “CHOCOLATE” was perhaps lacking in originality but added a fun eclectic touch anyway.  Scoring lines are almost always a welcome touch as they helped lend a hand in moderation… something that was rather difficult with this selection.

Texture~8/10

When it comes to texture, this bar was a knock out. I’m not usually a big fan of coconut in, well anything. However in the case of this bar it added a complex heterogeneity of texture not found in other bars.

Taste~9.5/10

I couldn’t put it down, seriously! Stevia, an unusual choice for sweetener, and something I’m not a fan of in general. Here though, it was a winner! The bar was silky sweet with out over doing it, and the coconut was  significant contribution to the taste but manages not to overpower the all important chocolate.

Fun factor~7.8/10

Creative but not over the top package presentation, paired with classic inner gold foil lends its self well to an overall pleasing aesthetic presentation. Saving an alleged “25%” calories, is fun for sure… though lets be real here, you’re eating a chocolate bar. Additionally there’s a heartwarming story to the name of the chocolate, see http://www.lilyssweets.com/lilys-story

Additional notes: Lily’s Coconut incredibly tasty product with “no added sugar”, fair trade, and supports the American Childhood Cancer Foundation http://www.acco.org/

Summary: A surprisingly good bar with unexpected flair.
