Coconut and Chocolate... Tue, 03/4/08 1:25 PM (permalink)
I've been reading posts on this forum for a couple of months now and my mouth waters every time I hear about all these great candies.

My son-in-law is a chocohaulic, so I made it a hobby in my free time of finding good-tasting candies to surprise him with. A few months ago, a friend of mine made a trip to Florida and came back with these delicious coconut patties covered in dark chocolate. I ate one and I was in heaven, so I went on the Anastasia Confections website and ordered one for my son-in-law. We've both been hooked ever since.



I've always been a fan of Almond Joy and Mounds, but these patties were creamier and came in a few flavors. Has anyone seen these in any stores up north?

    My MIL has a box on her table here in SoCal that she bought at Trader Joe's. Had one last night and even though I'm neither a chocolate nor a coconut fan, they were very good.

          Aren't they yummy? They are also sold in orange flavor .. keylime flavored .. mixed packages with patties and jellies .. small packets of 2 .. small boxes big boxes .. and you can find them all over here in Florida .. they must be available online search Orange Ring or Orange Barn .. even EBAY .. when fresh they are to die for

              The only place I ever saw these was the Orlando airport. Yes, they are just delicious. Can't wait until we move to FL so I can have them all the time...
