Splendid Chocolates Dark Chocolate Coconut and Pineapple

This Canadian chocolatier, from Montreal in the province of Quebec, is one I had never heard of before. The bar looked interesting, the combination of coconut and chocolate is one I like very much, though not normally in bars, where it's mostly coconut and a little milk chocolate. Too, the dried pineapple chunks looked interesting. This is Dark chocolate, but not a high content of cacao, sugar is the first ingredient. Other ingredients include chocolate liquor processed with alkali, cocoa butter, soya lecithin, vanilla, pineapple, sugar, coconut, sulfur dioxide and sulfite. How did it taste? Very good, the sprinkling of coconut and the dark chocolate make a good combination, I think that the ratio of chocolate to coconut works much better than other coconut bars, where it's coconut covered in milk chocolate. The pineapple chunks tasted good, but I don't think added much to the flavour.
