Whittaker's Coconut 
Posted: 4 October 2010  Doug's Chocolate Republic  7.5 
Whittaker Coconut This one caught me off guard. The toasted coconut, amply included at 18% content, tasted wonderful in the 33% creamy milk, for an overall saturated fat overload. Who'd have thunk it?

When you live in a tropical nation, you get used to coconuts falling on your head.   After so many headaches, you open the coconuts up, drink their deliciously sweet water, and scoop out the soft coconut flesh. 

Ten years ago, I would've been more accurately described as anti-coconut.  I wasn't fond of coconut ice-cream, coconut based desserts, coconut oils (which are actually healthier than official word lets out), and certainly not of coconut in my chocolate.  With my more open-minded attitude to coconuts nowadays, I didn't recoil in horror when Aussie Dave included a coconut bar in one of his parcels.  It wouldn't have been my first pick, but I wasn't going to donate it to the homeless before opening it either. 

This one caught me off guard.  The toasted coconut, amply included at 18% content, tasted wonderful in the 33% creamy milk, for an overall saturated fat overload.  Who'd have thunk it?  The bar might've survived for an hour before it was consumed in total.  In the past, a coconut bar would've hit the trash bin before it fully entered my digestive tract.  This was the third Whittaker bar I ever tasted.  That they won me over on a combo I would not have previously savored impressed me favorably towards this brand -- until I tasted the rum & raisin bar afterwards.  

For a change from the usual nut and fruit blends, go nuts with a coconut for a change.  You won't be disappointed.
