Taste test: This triangular box contained 18 smallish, irregularly shaped but roundish candies, each wrapped in a mostly-clear wrapper.
We bit in to find a surprisingly soft feel — the candy looked fairly solid, but it was actually very, very soft and just sort of disintegrated upon biting in. There was a mild caramel taste at first, transitioning into mostly coconut after that. Texturewise, the strands of coconut were all that was left after the test of it disintegrated/dissolved in the mouth, so there was that distinctive feel of coconut. Each piece was small enough (and light enough) that if you like these, you might end up eating lots of them in a row. Most of our snackers who tried these liked the taste a lot.
