#WorldCoconutDay with Anastasia Coconut Patties and No-Bake Coconut Chocolate Balls
|September 2, 2014||Filled under Candy, Reviews/Giveaways|
September 2 is World Coconut Day. That just makes me happy because I’m a super coconut fan! Did you know that coconuts are often mistaken as a fruit or a nut (because of its name); however, it’s neither of those. Coconuts are actually seeds. Yes, you can plant a coconut husk and watch it grow! But I hope you have patience! It takes about 7 years before you’ll start seeing any coconuts.
When Anastasia Confections asked me to try their Classic Original Coconut Patties, how could I say no? So glad I didn’t, because they’re AMAZING! Take one bite of their world famous Classic Original Coconut Patties, and you will see why they are one of the most popular items they sell. These treats first began as a Florida tradition, and have grown to become a nationwide delight. Each patty is made up of a smooth, shredded coconut texture that is then dipped in a rich dark chocolate coating, making a perfect combination for coconut candy lovers. All of Anastasia Confections Coconut Patties are also certified Kosher Candy (Kosher Dairy).
The 12 oz. box I received contained nine individually wrapped Coconut Patties (there were nine for about 6 seconds, anyway!) These make great gifts and yummy surprises for lunch boxes. I’d like to say that I shared these with my whole family, but in all honesty, my daughter and I ate them all. Don’t tell my husband!
I”ve seen these at places all over Florida while traveling over the years and just can’t believe all the missed opportunities to try these! There are so many flavors, too – Key Lime, Pina Colada, Almond, Orande, Mango, and the newest addition – Rum. (Don’t even get me started on the 59+ flavors of Sat Water Taffy they make!) Anastasia Confections is a family-owned and operated business based in Orlando, FL, and take great pride in ensuring quality in everything they make. Featured on NBC’s TODAY Show and in Parade magazine, Anastasia Confection’s Coconut Patties are sold throughout Florida and by several major retailers across the United States, Canada and the Caribbean. You can get also these Coconut Patties and all of their other delicious candies online at Anastasia Confections.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
