A chocolate rendition of the classic blend of coconut cream, rum, and pineapple (and the national drink of Puerto Rico!). We’re holding the rum here, opting for whole shredded coconut, real vanilla bean, and tangy dried pineapple for that bright and creamy flavor profile. Each bar is topped with sparkling brown sugar to make you feel, well, sparkling.
