Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week.
Today's Goodio Craft Chocolate Coconut bar was manufactured by Helsinki Heaven Ltd (Helsinki, Finland). The company makes a line of craft chocolate bars and coconut milk ice creams.
With today's bar, Finland is now added to the Chocolate Banquet list of countries where chocolate is being made from scratch (from cacao bean to chocolate bar).
This 51% Cacao, raw, organic, vegan bar was crafted using five ingredients: organic cacao beans, organic coconut palm sugar, organic cacao butter, organic coconut flakes and organic vanilla powder.
This bar was soy, gluten and dairy free, yet had the sweet, rich melt of a coconut milk chocolate bar. The texture was smooth, and the flavor was unapologetically coconut, through and through.
We've had a cooler, wetter winter here in California, with an exotic dusting of snow on surrounding hilltops for a week or two this February. (See photo at right.) However, it's still warmer than what I imagine a Scandinavian winter is like.
In case you are wondering...Today (Feb. 23), it was 39 degrees Fahrenheit (4 degrees Celsius) in Helsinki, Finland; and the sun set at 5:31 p.m. Not so bad.
Chocolate like this helps bring cheer to winter. Enjoy, wherever you might be.
