Dove Coconut Creme Easter Eggs
Coconut is simply not a personal favorite flavor, so in order to bring a fair critique to Dove's Coconut Creme Easter Eggs I forced a number of family, friends and colleagues to sample the foil-wrapped chocolates. First note, everyone automatically perks up upon seeing Dove chocolate. They know that Dove brand chocolate is seriously tasty stuff, super melty and more creamy than sweet. That said, the nearly unanimous reception of the coconut creme was disappointment. Even rabid coconut fans felt that the creme was too sweet without the substance of coconut. They had hoped for a strong, more natural flavor--perhaps even some finely shredded coconut in the mix. That said, the entire bag disappeared quickly.
