Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week.

Today's Chocolate Chip Coco-Roons (Chewy Cookie Bites) were from Sejoyia Foods (Louisville, CO).

Certified Gluten-Free, Organic, Paleo, Kosher and Non-GMO Project Verified, these chewy vegan coconut bites were studded with chocolate chips and had a certain freshness and buttery fruitiness about them. The fresh taste was aided by sturdy, sealed (and re-sealable) packaging.

Ground cashews provided a bit of light nuttiness and protein balance to the blend. And small doses of maple syrup, vanilla and sea salt rounded out these bites, making them satisfying and not too sweet (thank you!).

Coconut was the featured flavor (these bites contained coconut, coconut sugar and extra virgin coconut oil); however, the natural coconut flavors were not overwhelming.

Ingredients: Organic Coconut, Organic Cashews, Organic Coconut Sugar, Organic Maple Syrup, Organic Unsweetened Chocolate, Organic Natural Vanilla Flavor, Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Sea Salt.

Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week.

This substantial Dark Chocolate Coconut Cup was from Untamed Confections (Tubac, AZ).

The company's gluten-free chocolate confections, including today's chocolate cup, that I purchased were all very lightly sweetened with Sonoran Desert Wildflower Honey.* This made this cup a rare and delightful find: a coconut chocolate that wasn't gooey sweet with sugar and/or corn syrup. Hallelujah.

The thick, smooth dark chocolate cup was rich tasting and bittersweet. A toasted coconut and honey filling, shredded coconut topping and a faint flutter of vanilla provided lots of natural (subtle), balanced authentic coconut flavor.

*Ingredients: "Dark Fair Trade Organic Chocolate, Sonoran Desert Wildflower Honey, Organic Toasted Coconut, Organic Vanilla"

Note: In fairness to the vendor, I'm not showing a photo of this chocolate cup as it was stored for quite awhile in the chocolate vault (wine fridge), and did not look the same as it did when it was newly minted. (Traveling through a hot desert area with chocolates had its challenges.)
