Today marked the fourth day of Nicaraguan chocolate field trip-related entries. However, this chocolate had more to do with Nicaraguan scenery than chocolate from Nicaragua.
Specifically, our travel group was staying next to a Nicaraguan beach, and today's Coconut Beach Dark Chocolate Coated Coconut Chips seemed like a good fit.
The Isle of Ometepe was formed by two large volcanoes. It lies in the middle of a lake in Nicaragua that's so large that you forget you're not by the ocean. You can hear the waves wash against a large sandy beach day and night; see shorebirds and seabirds skittering about near the surf-line; and you can't see anything but water on the horizon. Oh, and did I mention there were coconut palms and cacao trees not that far away?
Coconut Beach is a distributor based in San Diego, CA; and the company's crunchy coconut chips (a product of Thailand) covered with dark chocolate were satisfying, gluten free, and relatively low in fat and sodium.
Today was also the first day of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week.
