Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week. This past weekend I went on a chocolate with coconut hunt. This "Coconuts" restaurant (sign pictured at right) looked promising, but, alas, there were no chocolate items on their menu.

So, the search continued, until I stopped at Country Sun Natural Foods store a few miles away. Here I found today's coconut chocolate dark 74% cacao (and "100% raw") bar from Stirs the Soul (a company based in Portland, OR).

The texture of this stone ground, coconut chocolate was very smooth, and not overly sweet, with a faint hint of slightly waxy, coconut soap mouthfeel. The raw, agave-sweetened (low glycemic), fairly traded, vegan bar was also manufactured in a gluten-free facility.
