Coconut Candy Reviews: Stover, Ghirardelli and Ferrero

Life is better with coconut candy in a box of chocolates.   I decided to stock-up on coconut candy  at the grocery store before the next polar vortex, subzero cold wave invades Chicago in February 2014. 

 I bought Russell Stover’s, Ghirardelli and Ferrero Rocher’s coconut candies to taste-test for review …. And here are the results:

Russell Stover Review

Russell Stover’s coconut crunch patty is a sumptuous delight.  It’s very tasty chocolate-covered shredded coconut. 

The milk chocolate’s flavor rivals very expensive brands. The generous amount of coconut is almost like eating  a pricey coconut haystack.

The coconut patty is only one, just 1, of 3 assorted pieces in Stover’s  3.5 oz. “Photo Heart” Valentine’s Day box, selling for about $2.00.  It’s widely available at drugstores, online stores and big box stores.  I need more!

Ghirardelli Coconut Rendezvous Review

I missed the coconut in Ghirardelli's chocolate bar.  The milk chocolate is fabulous tasting and incredibly smooth melting in my mouth.

But  Ghirardelli's new  product misses the mark when it comes to coconut... there is simple not enough for a coconut lover like me.

The product is available at drugstores for about $1.50 on sale.

 Ferrero Rocher Raffaellos Review

Ferrero Raffaello’s Almond Coconut Treat is a delicately-flavored,  creamy sweet that I adore.   It’s a diaphanous textured truffle that hits the spot without a sugar overdose.    
The candy is a little luxury that's great with  flavored coffee after dinner.  It’s all Ferrero’s quality flavor without chocolate.

You can find the product at drugstores, online stores and big box stores.  Ferrero Raffaello’s  coconut truffles are available in a 5.3 oz. box,  with about 8 pieces.

Life is indeed better with coconut  candy in a box of chocolates.   I'm glad that cabin fever pushed me to try new, different taste sensations.   Russell Stover and Ferrero Raffaello get high marks after  my coconut candy taste-tests with Ghirardelli trailing far behind.
