This is an organic coconut and dark chocolate combination which is worth the higher price in the candy bar arena.

The chocolate has a once snap on top of the chewy coconut. I paid $1.99 at Safeway and it was worth it.

They also make toffee, and peanut butter bars, so be on the look out and when you spot one, buy it! And oh my, they have mini bars, too!

Their web site states “OCHO Candy was created to provide candy lovers with a delicious, organic alternative to traditional candy bars. We use the finest ingredients and hand craft our bars so that you can taste the difference in every bite.”


Assorted Goods & Candy-an amazing store

Posted on


This tiny gem of a store is located in Louisville, Colorado which is about 8 miles from Boulder. The owner clearly has a passion for candy. The store is filled from floor to ceiling with candy, vintage toys, gifts, bags, and everything sweet that you could imagine. The owner’s sweet puppy, named Luna, greets guests.

I found a great selection of  imported candies including my favorite Curly Wurly bar. I had to restrain myself from buying half the store.

Visit the web site , and have a smile.

If you are on your way to Boulder, stop in Louisville and pick up a bag of sweets and smiles for your trip.
