milk chocolate drops, coconut flakes and cranberries
I received this snack in my February box from Graze.
I don’t usually pair similarly snacks with teas, but I decided to eat this snack with this Cranberry Black Tea from A. C. Perch. I found that the cranberry snack really brought out the cranberry notes in the tea. It was an interesting experiment!
What I Think:
Cranberry and coconut are two flavors that I wouldn’t think to mix, but I like them together. The sweetness of the coconut softens the tart notes of the cranberry.
I like the texture of the coconut shred. It almost reminds me of the coconut chips that I love from Dang, although they are a little less dry. They have a little more moisture to them, and as a result, they’re a little less crisp than the coconut chips. But they still have a really nice texture and I like the contrast to the snap of the coconut to the chewy cranberry and the creamy chocolate.
The chocolate is absolutely my favorite thing about this mix, and I’m glad that they didn’t skimp on the chocolate drops.
My Final Thoughts:
I “liked” this one. It isn’t my favorite snack that I’ve gotten from Graze, but I do like the combination of chocolate, coconut and cranberry, and I wouldn’t mind getting this snack in the future.
