We were on a trip in Florida this summer and found this product in the local stores. It is a coconut patty, similar to a Mounds bar. And on the label it says "MANUFACTURED IN A NUT FREE FACILITY"

Yippeee!

My kids LOVE these candies. At Passover they are a good substitute for coconut macaroons (although of course they will not be "kosher for Passover").

They are very dense and heavy. They come in plain coconut with chocolate coating, but also some of them are flavored: orange, mango, passion fruit, etc.

You can buy them online, although there is no mention of "nut free" on the website, believe me it is on the boxes:

I saw these and upon searching could find no info here. My concern was that upon checking their website I believe I found an almond variety. I never called to check if it was artificial.

We do not use any kind of nuts in any of our products or machines. The chocolate that we order for our products, as well as the coconut and flavorings come from companies that are nut-free facilities, like ours. All of our products are Kosher certified. Thank you.

The almond is an artificial almond flavoring, no real almonds or any kind of nuts at all.

Wow, I'm glad to hear that indeed that are 100% nut free. Thank you for enquiring to the company!

They are really good. It's hard to stop eating them! They taste even better than Mounds bars. I bought several boxes for my kids. The flavors are interesting. I like orange the best after plain coconut.

I noticed that these are also sold at Disney World in the shape of Mickey's head. I think that they are manufactured by the same company.

Aren't those words the happiest in the world: "Made in a nut-free facility." When I see that, I feel like the heavens have opened up and smiled down upon us!
