It’s Thursday and this rain has me feeling “nutty” – “Coconutty” that is! Yes, you heard that right. Chilly, rainy days like today make me want to throw on the kettle, make a piping hot cup of tea and find a delectable sweet treat (preferably something dunkable) to savor . Throw on a blanket and some Netflix and I’d say that I have created the perfect binge-worthy scenario.
Lucky for me, I have the perfect sweet, coconutty treats to accompany my cup of tea today. GIANT is back at it with some new Limited Time Originals and this time they feature Toasted Coconut, which adds just the perfect touch of sweetness and texture to some of my everyday favorite treats. These are by far my favorite Limited Time Original I have tried. Oh GIANT, you must stop teasing us with all of this deliciousness and make some of these items a permanent part of GIANT’s everyday line of foods! As we speak, I am dunking away with these crazy delicious Toasted Coconut Creme Cookies, which by the way are filled with coconut creme and a dark chocolate flavored center. Can you say heaven?!!
But don’t even get me started! Let me tell you – I tried the Toasted Coconut Caramel Ice Cream for the first time last night and it may be one of my favorite ice creams I have ever tasted! The taste is spot on. I sampled it on its own but I can’t even begin to imagine all of the ways I could use this half gallon of heaven. Could you imagine how yummy it would taste served over warm waffles (made fresh with Toasted Coconut Pancake & Waffle Mix) or a warm brownie? Or as the base for an ice cold, frothy milkshake? Or how about sandwiched between two cookies as an ice cream sandwich? Or repurposed as a Mexican dessert of fried ice cream or Chocolate dipped coconut ice cream tacos?
Did I mention that I am crazy for coconut?!!
From sweet to savory, creamy to crunchy, GIANT has introduced more than 20 coconut-inspired products throughout the store. Some of the items I have been fortunate enough to sample include Toasted Coconut Granola (which is perfect sprinkled over my vanilla yogurt), Toasted Coconut Flavored Water (which is a real treat when it comes to getting in my daily water intake and with 0 calories and 0 Carbs, it is diet friendly as well), Toasted Coconut Hummus (which tastes super yummy with pretzels or apple slices), Toasted Coconut Popcorn Shrimp (which I am having a hard time sharing its so ridiculously good and certainly would work as an amazing appetizer to keep on hand for unexpected guests or to bring along last minute to a potluck), Toasted Coconut Cake ( which is a small cake which is perfect for the family to enjoy after dinner as a treat but not big enough that it will hang around for days tempting me), and Toasted Coconut Gouda Cheese (which has the perfect balance of sweet and savory, making it great served with apple slices and crackers to get me over my midday hump). Seriously, I am in love with them all!
And this Toasted Coconut Brioche Bread – Well, I have big plans for you, my friend! This weekend I am hoping to turn this Toasted Coconut Brioche Bread into a lovely French toast casserole for my family. I bet it is going to be out-of-this-world!
While shopping this week I also spotted some Toasted Coconut scented house products which would be a simple way to introduce the delight of the tropics into your home with its lively, coconutty scent! Hey – I’ll take it – especially of it reminds me of some of my favorite island vacations!
One thing is for certain – coconut lovers are sure to rejoice as you nibble your way through all of these heavenly treats! But hurry – these products are only here for a limited time. When they are gone they are gone! (Unless we can convince GIANT otherwise – so if there is a product you simply can’t live without, be sure to email GIANT and let them know!) We all know how much GIANT loves their customers!
