|Eat Coconut Truffles when you can't get Haystacks|
Guess what's my favorite coconut candy? Answer: All of it! And I don't wait to be given a Valentine's Day gift to eat a tasty coconut treat.
The best coconut candy I ever tasted was Marshall Field's CHOCOLATE COCONUT HAYSTACKS. This candy was a very rough mixture of sumptuous milk chocolate and moist coconut flakes, nearly the size of golf balls.
In a previous post, I said that the haystacks were the size of baseballs. Sorry, I got carried away by my imagination and fond memories.
Marshall Field's department store has been closed for over a decade. I won't ever forget the awesome flavor of their candy.
The coconut lover in your life would more than appreciate full-flavored, artisan crafted coconut haystack candy for a Valentine's Day gift.
