Would you believe that these Unreal Dark Chocolate Coconut Minis from Costco only have only three ingredients? Well, they do – just organic coconut, dark chocolate and cassava syrup. Using only three ingredients also allows them to be gluten-free, vegan and low in sugar! The question is, do they taste unreal or just okay?
I have a major sweet tooth but I’m always trying to add a few “healthier” sweets into my treat drawer. I’ve heard about Unreal Snacks before through social media so when I saw they had these mini coconut bars at Costco I picked them up to try.
Similar healthier alternative products at Costco like these coconut bars are the Innofoods Keto Coconut Clusters, Seedwise Granola, Hilo Life Tortilla Chips, Jojo’s Dark Chocolate Bites, Ozery Seedwise Keto Clusters, CHOCXO Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cup, CHOCXO Keto Snaps, HighKey Mini Cookies, Smart Sweets Sweet Fish, Smart Sweets Peach Rings and Jojo’s Guilt Free Chocolate.
Location in Store
The mini coconut bars are located in the snack section at Costco. Near the front of the store. The item number is 1268728.
These are absolutely delicious. They remind me of a Bounty bar or Ruffles but way better. They have the perfect amount of sweetness and I actually prefer that they’re less sweet than other candy bars. The texture of the coconut filling isn’t too chewy or soft, it’s light and fluffy.
I personally feel like the ratio of chocolate to coconut is just right. However, I could see people appreciating more chocolate because there’s more coconut than chocolate. The chocolate tastes like a high-quality dark chocolate that compliments the coconut well.
The bag comes with about 30 individually wrapped bars and costs $14.89 Canadian at Costco which I think is really reasonable.
Each bar is individually wrapped which makes them easy to pop in your purse, lunch or desk at work. I recommend storing them in a cool, dry place and the best before-date is about eight months from when I purchased them.
One bar leaves me feeling satisfied and curbs my cravings for something sweet. I think the whole family will enjoy these, the kids may not love them as much as adults do but that’s okay!
Three bars contain 210 calories, 15 grams of fat, 24 grams of carbohydrates, three grams of fibre, nine grams of sugar, two grams of protein and zero milligrams of sodium.
If you’re like me and only need one to feel satiated then you’re only looking at 70 calories, five grams of fat, eight grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre and three grams of sugar.
There are only three ingredients, coconut, cassava syrup and dark chocolate. These are gluten-free, vegan, have no soy ingredients and have no sugar alcohols which are definitely positives.
They may contain peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, wheat, milk and soy as they’re processed in a facility that also produces products with those ingredients.
If you’re looking for a tasty coconut treat that’s vegan and gluten-free with less sugar than similar candy bars. These are perfect for you.
