Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and Mango Theme Week. 

Today's Mango and Coconut Chocolate Crunch was created by Theo and Philo Chocolate Factory Inc. (San Juan, Metro Manila, Philippines).

Aroma notes for these chocolate confections included: toasted coconut, macaroon, chocolate, fresh sweet green and very faint sweet fruit. 

These two-bite sized, petite chocolate macaroon-like haystack scooped confections were light and crunchy. The small bits of different textures all played nicely together; and the rice crispies added textural interest and an airiness to these treats.

Texturally, this was a complex blend of chewy toasted coconut flakes, crunchy rice crispies, tender dried mango bits, and smooth dark chocolate. 

All these flavors were balanced and harmonized well--offering a pleasant, not too sweet (thank you) treat. These small snacks were not quick cookies, not quite confections. They were a welcome, high-end relative of small coconut macaroons, with a Philippine twist.

Ingredients: 65% dark chocolate (cacao beans, sugar, cocoa butter), desiccated coconut, dried mango, and rice crispies. (Cacao origin: Philippines)

Allergen-related information: "Processed in a facility that also processes peanuts and other tree nuts."
