He's My Boy!

I don't like dried coconut. I would eat the fresh meat of a coconut or have a curry made with coconut milk. But the moment there is a hint, a trace of dried coconut in my cake, chocolate or any form of dessert, I either let Hubby eat it or just won't order it to begin with. And I thought I was the only one in this family who didn't like dried coconut until recently.

A few days ago, Hubby let Boy Wonder have a bite of his Bounty chocolate bar. I hate Bounty. A chocolate bar filled with dried coconut, yuck! So when he told me Boy Wonder bit into his Bounty but then stopped midway when he tasted the coconut, I was so proud. I'm not the only nut who doesn't like coconut in this family after all.

And come to think of it, when I got Boy Wonder a box of those flavored jelly beans with dozens of flavors in them, started handing me back all the white ones. I thought it was odd so I looked at the list of flavors with their corresponding colors and what do you know, the white ones were coconut flavored!

He's my boy!

Good for Sammy. Dried coconut was really off-putting for me until I was in university. Somehow I finally came to be okay with it, although it isn't as nice as fresh coconut or coconut milk.
