When OldTimeCandy.com kindly offers me some candy samples to review, I knew I wanted to get some things I haven’t seen in a long time. I love “old” and “nostalgic” candy. So after some pursuing their selection, I settled on these Brach’s Sundaes Neapolitan Coconut to go with the Brach’s Jelly Nougats that I reviewed earlier. I also remember seeing these all over in grocery store bins since childhood. I’m happy to know that they’re still being sold.
These candies are very pretty to look at. Like the jelly nougats, they’re slightly rectangular with three colors stripes. Brown at the top, white in the middle and pink at the bottom. It mimics the Neapolitan ice cream that is so popular!
The candy smells heavily of coconut. The candy feels dense and moist when you finally unwrap it and hold it in your fingers. The flavor is intense coconut. It’s moist, dense, chewy and so sweet. I didn’t notice any difference in the flavoring between the three colors. They all have that fantastic coconut flavor. One candy is satisfying on it’s own, so you don’t have to worry about having more than you’d like with these.
if you’re into coconut, you must give these a try. You can find coconut candies like this in many variations, these are the smallest ones I’ve seen. Regardless, I was pleased with how tasty these were, my memory of them totally held up. I highly recommend you try them.
