We're going to Florida later this month for a quick vacation (to get away from our lovely Chicago winter for a few days) and I have been dreaming about my favorite treat that can be found in most Florida airports... COCONUT PATTIES!! They are made by Anastasia Confections and are the most divine thing. I love these so so much. Nothing is better than coconut and chocolate! Our friend Keenan is a flight attendant and brought these back from Florida when I was prego and I was SO excited. Carrie's husband Steve found them online (I think also when I was pregnant) and they ordered some for me as a surprise - I almost peed my pants.
So now that I have conveyed how much I love these... today I was in TJ Maxx (looking for a softer rug for the LR without much success) and as I went to check out with some other things I'd picked up, I noticed right by the register...the bright yellow boxes screaming the name, Coconut Patties. I gasped, and exclaiming to Eli how wonderful these were, threw three boxes in my cart and have been dreaming about them ever since (I'm going to use a free point for sweets tomorrow and will be in total heaven). If you ever fly through Florida or see these in TJ Maxx... try them!
*I'm a little leery about buying food from TJ Maxx, but these had an expiration date for Aug. 08, so I figured they would still be fine. Hopefully I'm not disappointed!
