Coconut Secret chocolates

June 8, 2015

Chocolate on sale! I love going to stores and seeing the yellow tag underneath the regular price tag, since these sales allow me to try many brands of chocolates. This week: Coconut Secret. This is the brand that does the coconut products like the coconut sugar, coconut flour, coconut aminos, etc.

The milk chocolate Ecuadorian Crunch bar was very chalky. I could barely taste the nutty milk chocolate itself, as the coconut quickly took over the palate. Not terribly sweet like some milk chocolates can get, but not completely unsweetened either. I picked up the taste of caramel, which I assume is from the coconut crystals since coconut sweeteners typically have that flavor profile. Ingredients: organic coconut crystals, organic cocoa butter, organic whole milk powder, organic cocoa mass, organic vanilla extract, organic coconut.

The white chocolate bar, Caribbean crunch, was very similar to the milk chocolate Ecuadorian crunch bar. Chalky, no cacao taste due to the white chocolate, and coconut all around. Not very sweet, with a slight caramel note. Ingredients: organic cocoa butter, organic whole milk powder, organic coconut crystals, organic vanilla extract, organic coconut.

Overall, an interesting find to try. Coconut Secret really did highlight the coconut in these bars as per its brand name, with coconut and coconut sugar’s caramel flavors taking the reins. As there was no homage whatsoever to the cacao they contained, I probably won’t be picking another one of these up anytime soon.
