The Bounty Bar is a chocolate and coconut candy bar produces by the Mars Company. In the US, a similar bar is produced by Hershey’s, and we know them as Almond Joy and Mounds. Bounty, in the blue wrapper, is a coconut filling coated in milk chocolate, and the candy in a red wrapper is coated with dark chocolate. The main difference is that neither Bounty has almonds, unlike an Almond Joy.
While both varieties are sold at The Tea Caddy in the UK Pavilion at Epcot, I picked this bar up for a fraction of the cost at Publix, where the dark chocolate variety was unavailable. If you won’t be at Epcot any time soon to try these candies, check the international aisle at your local supermarket.
One package of Bounty has two pieces of candy inside, each piece being two, maybe three bites.
I’ve got two candy bars from UK today, having a mini showdown between the two! I’m trying the milk chocolate Aero in the new “Bubbly Bar” design and the Mint Aero in the traditional bar design. First up I’ll try the milk chocolate.
Today we’re visiting the UK by way of the Cadbury Flake ($2.95), “The crumbliest, flakiest milk chocolate.” I bought this candy bar at the Tea Caddy in the UK at Epcot, where they sell a large assortment of Twinings Tea. It immediately caught my attention because I don’t think I’ve seen anything like it by an American company.
I’ve been wanting to pick up a pack of the Resort Delights Coconut Patties for quite some time, and they are nothing new to the Disney scene They usually catch my eye primarily while at the Poly, although they can be found elsewhere on property. Being a fan of Almond Joy and Mounds bars, it was only fair that I pick up a pack to try. I opted for the 2 piece package as opposed to the larger box of them. Matt doesn’t like coconut, in fact his response when he saw me pick up a pack of these was, “Ew.” More for me!
