In our continuing ice-cream coverage during this sweltering summer…Coconut Bliss Dark Chocolate Bars.

IMG_3096This coconut-milk ice cream bar is as delicious as the dark chocolate ice cream that comes by the pint from Coconut Bliss — but of course, in the summer it’s fun to eat ice cream on a stick.

IMG_3097And these bars feel a little lighter and fluffier than the amazing dense chocolate of the dark chocolate pints … which, again, is perfect for summer.

IMG_3098The chocolate is rich and creamy and flavorful … we can’t think of a better way to beat the heat. In fact, we’d enjoy them even in winter.

We hope to try out every Coconut Bliss bar flavor before summer’s end, but in case we don’t, you can check them out here. Flavors include naked coconut, strawberry, latte, and coconut almond in chocolate. And you can see our review of the Salted Caramel in Chocolate here.

Since we are still in a heat wave, we sampled Nada Moo! coconut-milk ice cream, which came highly recommended by a fellow sweet tooth who says she’s never met a Nada Moo flavor she didn’t like.

After tasting Nada Moo’s Cookies & Creme, we feel quite certain that we’d agree about all the other flavors.

Nada MooCookies & Creme is amazing: rich, creamy, with a strong vanilla flavor and plenty of crunchy chocolate cookies.

IMG_3081The texture is lighter and fluffier in texture than Coconut Bliss (which isn’t better or worse, just different), and, like Coconut Bliss, the ice cream is made with organic coconut milk.

IMG_3083We are very much looking forward to enduring the heat wave with more Nada Moo.  Other flavors include Chocolate Cherry Fudge Brownie, Pistachio Nut, Vanilla Cha-Cha-Chai, Sweet Cherry Lime, and Maple Pecan. Yum.
