Name: Chocolate Covered Coconut Shortbread
Brand: Kika's Treats
Origin: San Francisco
Found at: San Francisco International Chocolate Salon
Cost: $7.50
Ingredients: Semisweet chocolate, unsalted butter, unbleached wheat flour, rice flour, unrefined cane sugar, Rapadura sugar, unsweetened coconut, kosher salt, coconut extract, vitamin E
Why I bought it:
Kika's Brazilian Honey Cakes are lovely, but the shortbread is a new offering from this La Cocina Incubator Kitchen-operated business.
Tasting notes:
The Rapadura (dried sugarcane juice) gives this a caramelized tinge that's appealing. There's a good crunch and it doesn't make a big, crumby mess like regular shortbread.
Would I buy it again? Yes, although the Honey Cakes are beckoning . . .
What other blogs/sites thought of it: A Yelper calls these "so dark and addictive it's almost criminal."
