Russell Stover Coconut and Almond Easter Egg



Coconut does not hold much allure for this sweets fiend, so I always try to put myself in my esteemed Mother's mindset while tasting a coconut sweet. She goes wild for coconut and feels great emotion over its various incarnations. I can attest that the Mother of obsessivesweets would heartily enjoy the Russell Stover Coconut and Almond Easter egg. The coconut patty packs a ton of coconut into each bite, without falling prey to becoming too dry. The gooey coconut is the big show here. A very fine layer of milk chocolate surrounds the coconut and then finely crushed almonds are sprinkled on top. They're not overwhelming but add rich flavor to the bite. A thicker layer of milk chocolate then coheres the whole thing together. This is definitely one of the best varieties of the vast Russell Stover candy line.

Score: 4

  1. Oh, doesn't that sound absolutely delicious! Coconut is healthy, right? So, maybe with just a tiny bit of chocolate and healthy nuts on the outside.....Thank you for my spotlight!
