Announcing the birth of our newest Creo family member
Lovingly wrapped for all to admire on February 18, 2015
Weighing in at over 50 grams
73% dark with toasty highlights
We call it – Dark Toasted Coconut and it’s a keeper!
Come in for a sample and get to know our baby.
There is a family resemblance , we are keeping it dark!
For those interested, here’s the birth story.
We have been working on the coconut chocolate bar for a long time. We have been experimenting with numerous different types of coconut and different ways to incorporate it in the bar. Now we understand a bit of Thomas Edison’s frustration when he was searching for the right light bulb filament. Nothing worked for us until we found this:
100% organic coconut chips from Sri Lanka. No sugar added (not needed).
It was love at first sight and taste.
The smell, the taste, the feel and the look. What more could we ask for. Finally, the right coconut. Next step, into the oven for toasting.
This coconut even gets better with toasting. What do you think? Smell it, then taste.
Then the chocolate was put into a mold and a liberal amount (as much as we can safely put in) of coconut was added. The coconut goes deep into the dark chocolate.
Now to put into the packaging. Thanks for asking about the packaging, yes, this packaging is 100% compostable wood fiber even though it looks like plastic. I am truly amazed about clear wood fiber.
It can be challenging to put the bar with this much coconut into the package, but we work hard at it.
The last step is to put on the paper jacket which helps you understand some of the Creo story while allowing you to look through the window at the bar. It is like looking through the window and seeing a master piece.
We have gone a bit nuts (coconuts) over this creation but we believe you are worth the extra time and energy to make this.
This has been a happy ending to all the research and development to make this bar come to life.
I would enjoy hearing what you think about this new addition to our Creo family.
Off to solve the next problem.
