I think Allison said it best when she said "when I opened this treat up I said to myself, oh coconut". Keep in mind she said this with a tone of disappointment Both Allison and myself share the same opinion of coconut, and that opinion is not very high. I've been thinking about it lately and I've realized my problem with coconut. I don't think it should be abandon as a sweet treat ingredient, I just think it should be used a lot more sparingly. I believe people should use it more as a spice than a key ingredient, like vanilla or almond extract.

This treat, unfortunately falls victim to the over use of coconut and it pretty much ruins the whole treat. Worst of all it also uses white chocolate, one of the more mild types of chocolate. I think if they had mixed a small amount of coconut into the chocolate, instead of coating it in coconut, there may have been a better flavour combination. As it is, the only people that will enjoy this snack are people who really like coconut.

It's a shame too, because the texture of this treat is really nice. There's a nice thin wafer covered in chocolate and filled with a white chocolate cream. The coconut is actually OK as a texture as well, it's just the over powering flavour that ruins everything.
