You have to love coconut, for starters. And then you have to also have a personality that would pick a coconut candy over the other tremendous flavors in the candy bar aisle and/or the bowl of Halloween candy.
There’s also that indelible jingle, the one you can’t scrub out once it gets up inside your noggin.
On Thursday, I opened up a Bounty, which seems to be the Brit version of a Mounds.
(*googles Bounty commercial*)
Whoa. That was … primal?
I … guess that’s better? Really, I was just hoping for a cheeky English jingle, but I think I’m satisfied with a shitty cover of Otis Redding.
[Ed. note: For a considerably better cover of Otis Redding, check out St. Paul and the Broken Bones‘s version. Spoiler alert: He’s not actually dead at the end.]
Where was I? Oh yes, the eating of the candy …
Bounties are really good!
Bonus: The inlay on the bottom, which often in chocolate bars is just little criss-crosses, is a fun little bit of Bounty branding. Top marks.
