Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week.

We've sampled chocolates with shredded, raw and dehydrated coconut, coconut oil and coconut sugar. Today we're adding freeze dried coconut to this list.

The judicious used of crushed, freeze dried fresh fruit powder—to add concentrated, authentic fruit flavor to chocolate—seems to have been on the rise in recent years. And we like it.

Today's gluten free Coconut Melts were from Tru Fru, LLC (South Jordan, UT). The freeze-dried fresh coconut centers had an appealing light crunchy texture. And, as promised, a few seconds after you bit into them the coconut center swooned into a velvety melt with the chocolate coating.

These round pieces were a bit sweet, but the slightly earthy, dark chocolate helped balance the sweetness and lingered a bit in the aftertaste.
