These soft and chewy, sweet coconut candy and mango flavored bites from Trader Joe's (Monrovia, CA) were coated with dark chocolate that helped balance out the sweetness. The small rectangular pieces that came packaged in a resealable bag were just the right size for a snack.

Coco Keeno - Organic mango - May 28, 2013

Chocolate of the Day: 

Wonder Food Co.
Coco Keeno - Organic dried mango covered in dark chocolate

Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Mango Theme Week.

Today's "Coco Mango" flavor, from a line of Coco Keeno chocolate products, was made with dried, organic mango from Wonder Food Co. (Palm Desert, CA). Small mango pieces were drenched in organic dark chocolate. The 70% cacao coating was rich enough to make a small serving satisfying.

And, who doesn't like a nice monkey mascot when it comes to chocolate? (Previously on Chocolate Banquet I featured a Chocolate and Monkey Theme Week, with a lot of bananas and peanut butter and monkeys of all types.) This particular, almost mango-colored, golden tamarin monkey (pictured on today's chocolate package) lives in trees in Central/South America, and is a Coco Keeno mascot. Wonder Food Co. donates part of the proceeds from this product line to preserving rainforest/monkey habitat.

Thank you to Elana at SweetE Organic, for continuing to carry great organic, gluten free, preservative-free options, so that everyone can enjoy a sweet item now and then.
