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


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.


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.


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

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

Summary: A surprisingly good bar with unexpected flair.
