As always with coconut treats I have to mention that I'm not a big fan of coconut. I should however mention that I'm getting more and more into it as time passes. I'm not sure if that's a sign of old age, or if I'm just opening my eyes to this strange "nutty" treat. I don’t think I’ll ever be a full convert, but more and more I’m starting to accept the idea of some treats using coconut as a flavouring.
The nice thing about this particular treat is it's not your average peanut brittle. The nicer thing about this treat is that the coconut doesn't really affect the flavour at all. The difference is that the brittle seems to be a little more burnt, and that's a good thing. It also seems to have this strange after taste that a few friends that tried this didn't like, but I didn't mind it at all. I figure it might be some kind of flavouring because people that enjoy Indian food liked this brittle, while those that weren't big fans didn't like it at all.
Did I mention this is Indian? Who knew that peanut brittle was big there?
The biggest downfall of this treat had to be the freshness of the peanuts, or the lack of. They where pretty stale, although shipping stuff to Canada (where I bought this) from India could be the problem. Maybe with better quality nuts I would have really gotten a kick out of this, but the stale peanuts did take a lot away.
