Two of our fan faves, but two very different flavors, Almond Coconut and Coconut Peanut Butter get confused, switched and called about every week. One has dates, one has peanut butter and both have real bits of coconut. With a quick glance from the outside we can understand how the two can be a source of nutty confusion, but once you peel back the wrapper the differences are striking. To help you differentiate the two and ensure you get the delicious Perfect Bar you’re hoping to bite into, we are breaking down the flavors once and for all.
The Color of the Wrappers
We know, we know. We just love the color blue. There are now four Perfect Bar wrappers that are some shade of blue. Blueberry Cashew, Chocolate Walnut Brownie and of course, Coconut Peanut Butter and Almond Coconut. One easy way to differentiate between the two is the slight difference in the shade of blue, as well as keeping an eye out for either the peanut shape or the almond shape on the front of the wrapper.
The Fruit in Almond Coconut
Another common question we get is when people open up the package expecting Coconut Peanut Butter and what they actually have is Almond Coconut. Besides the nut butter bases of the two flavors being different, another big difference is what you will find in the bar. Most people who haven’t tried Almond Coconut are sometimes thrown off by the dried cranberries you will taste once you bite into the bar.
Almond Coconut is our only vegan flavor. This is an almond butter and date based bar, with real flakes of coconut and bits of cranberries. This flavor has a different look and taste than our other flavors being that it does not contain honey and is rather sweetened with dates.
Almond Butter vs Peanut Butter
Almond Coconut like stated above, is almond butter based which naturally will be drier than our peanut butter based bars. Our peanut butter based bars, like Coconut Peanut Butter, will be creamier and denser.
