Anastasia’s Coconut Patties

Candy eating can be a bit depressing this time of year. Halloween is over, and the only thing left in the bottom of your kids’ plastic pumpkins are butterscotch Dum Dum suckers and peppermint Star Brites. To make matters worse, the winter holidays are still far enough away that it requires real work to find chocolate Santas and marshmallow snowmen to munch on. And eating candy should never be work.

What’s a person to do? It’s time to troll the local candy shops and specialty supermarkets for something other than the usual candy suspects you find in every gas station in the country. This searching led me to something quite amazing, Anastasia’s Confections Coconut Patties, an oddbird candy treat that features coconut, of course, dipped in rich chocolate. Being a fan of both Almond Joy and Mounds bars, I decided to give the Coconut Patties a try.

Well, Mounds – and Almond Joy, too – eat your heart out. These Coconut Patties have left you in their dust. Coconut Patties are that most pleasant of candy surprises: A treat that tastes far better than it looks.

When I opened the candy’s package, I expected to find something that looked like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Instead, I found an almost 2-inch square of coconut with only its sides and bottom dipped in chocolate. Yes, readers, Coconut Patties are naked on top! Turns out, though, this really lets the candy’s coconut shine. And the candy’s look wasn’t the only surprise: It was quite tasty, too. The bar was soft and chewy, with lots and lots of coconut. The chocolate is only a cocoa concoction, but is delicious anyway.

Anastasia’s Confections is based out of Orlando, and seems to be a regional favorite there. (It’s nice to see something from that city that doesn’t have mouse ears plastered to it.) The company makes everything from salt water taffy to Choc-O-Gators. That last product explains the first question I had when picking up Coconut Patties: Why on earth does the package feature a crocodile wearing hot pink sunglasses? (I might have thought “alligator wearing hot pink sunglasses.” I’ve never quite understood the difference between the two creatures.)

Odd cartoon mascot aside, I’d recommend Coconut Patties to anyone tired of the same-old bite-sized bars your kids brought home this Halloween. And if you get sick of the candy’s original version, Coconut Patties are also available in Key Lime, almond, orange, pina colada and mango flavors. If they’re as good as the original, you can’t go wrong.

    Hi, All:

    I really like these, too. I was surprised because they just didn’t look like they’d be too tasty. But I love getting the good kind of surprise from candy.

    Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. The holidays are whatnow? The Walgreens and Longs Drugs near me both had shelves of Christmas crap all lined up staring the Halloween items ominously down for weeks in October, all of which has now been deployed – including, at Longs anyway, bags of mint M&Ms (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), mint Three Musketeers bars, mint hershey’s kisses, mint Almond Roca (wtf?)…. Ok, I didn’t look for marshmallow figurines, but I’m sure they’re there too!

    Wow, Dani. Shows how much I know. I haven’t seen holiday candy yet at our local stores, but it looks like some have definitely jumped the gun.
