This one is for those who are coco for coconut. This sticky brick of candy incorporates the three colors and an attempt at the three classic sundae flavors, chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. Striped brown, white, and pink this Sundae, though clever with the name, is not more than a colorful coconut block.

I’m not complaining about it by any means, but I don’t want you to be misled into thinking that this was some sort of triflavored candy when really it is quite monoflavored.

This is a conveniently individually wrapped candy that can be unwrapped and eaten during movies or business meetings, during classes or lying on the beach next to palm trees. Feel the tropical groove with the coconut move.

Neapolitan ice cream is the three flavors (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry) all lined up, aesthetically similar to this Brach’s candy. Neapolitans originated in Italy, which is why it puzzles me how this originally Italian idea seems so tropical with this coconut twist. Either way, it’s a prize possession for the coconut fanatics.

(My favorite Neapolitan type dessert is the freeze dried Neapolitan ice cream)
