Funny how quickly resistance becomes futile. Recently, Shelf Life discovered that our favourite made-in-Canada treats, Tropix Original Coconut Drops, are now available in two extra flavours: Cranberry and Apricot (not forgetting the wonderful Ginger flavour, hitherto our other addiction). This development prompted a millisecond of deliberation, followed by a full blown Add To Cart episode. The results were delicious – we’re pleased to report that the added varieties of fresh-coconut-with-brown-sugar-and-a-touch-of-salt morsels are just as sensational as Coconut Drops and Ginger Coconut Drops 1.0. These little nuggets really do taste like sunshine, which is no small boon for icebound Canadians everywhere. The story begins in Jamaica, where young student Denise Edwards looked forward to buying fresh, sweet coconut clusters from the vendors outside the school gates. Years later, new Ontario resident Edwards perfected her own classic coconut drop recipe. After trying them out at potlucks and parties, the sweets became a business, and Edwards acquired a coconut slicer to keep up with demand. The snacks – they’re a sort of crunchy chew – contain just a few all-natural ingredients, and each hand-made batch is made from a freshly cracked open coconut. Shelf Life is taken by their honest-to-goodness wholesomeness, and we love the fact that the new flavours keep on keeping it real (especially the apricot, in our opinion). Cheese platters of Canada, your new crush awaits you. Note to Galen Weston: try them, you’ll like them! And then please stock them in Loblaws stores.
