Coconut Bliss Review + Date Night

My boyfriend & I have been together for a little over a year & a half. Sometimes we just like to stay in, watch a movie, make some popcorn, & relax. It's nice to spend time together in a casual way. It's not all about fancy dinners & limos. We usually are homebodies anyway. We go out once in a while but prefer to save time, money, & energy by having a good time at home or somewhere local. :] 



We watched "Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. " My boo has never watched any of the films! Can you believe it? We made the commitment to watch the 3 hour movie & he quite liked it. The night was unknowingly sponsored by Luna & Larry's Coconut Bliss*. My friend Jordan told me about the brand a year or so ago. She's vegan & pretty vigilant about eating as clean as possible. After that, I'd always wanted to try it because she hyped it up so much!



I received 2 coupons for 1 free product each. After scouring the selection, Bae & I chose the Naked Coconut & the Chocolate Walnut Brownie ice cream pints. There were Bliss Bars as well, but we preferred the flavors that were in pint form. These ended up being $6.19 each, which is pretty pricy when it comes to ice cream. Coconut Bliss ice creams are soy free, gluten free, & vegan. Okay, so despite the price, these were delightful. We tried a bit of each to get a good taste. #NoRegrets!! 



Man, these were sooooo yummy. The Chocolate Walnut Brownie was very rich & chocolaty. You could spot little brownie chunks as well as walnut bits. This one is perfect for any chocolate lover. The Naked Coconut was my favorite though. It was creamy & dense. I'd definitely say it's something to splurge on. I'd be willing to spend $6.19 simply because it's so rich that you'd want to eat it sparingly. P.S. coconut is high in fat! 

Hopefully my boyfriend isn't annoyed of this photo of him. Sorry babe! This was from said date night. I gave him a nice spoonful of Naked Coconut. We watched Lord of the Rings & we had a wonderful time together. I was worried that he wouldn't like the film, but he did! He liked the action, the effects, & basically the whole thing. 

Have you watch the Lord of the Rings films? What did you think? Oh, have you ever tried any Coconut Bliss products? Any favorites? Hope you have a tasty day. Thank you for reading! :]

  1. Haha you two seem like my kind of people. Firstly, my boyfriend and I like to stay in a lot too (even though we do go out quite often as well)-- we usually cook our meals together, watch a movie or TV show, and eat snacks. It's always feels like navigating a landmine-filled field when I'm at my boyfriend's because he always has way too many delicious snacks that tempt me! I am a huge fan of LOTR and my bf hasn't watched them either-- when I made him watch the first, he nearly fell asleep! Even though he said he liked it, I could tell he would never be a huge fan haha. Nevertheless, there are many other films and shows that we both like so we aren't in jeopardy over LOTR!

    To answer your question, my boyfriend and I actually both live in Vancouver but we are currently both visiting relatives in Asia-- so he's now in Hong Kong and I'm in Singapore (even though we both took little trips to visit each other) :)

  9. Amazing.. When I get back to the US, I definitely want to try this.
    I've never seen anything like this in Paris. Might have to find a vegan store, though parisians are not TOO into all that stuff quite yet!

  11. I've been moving away from dairy this month due to a 28 day healthy eating challenge, but I'm pretty sure I'll continue to leave dairy out of my diet when possible! I have such a sweet tooth and I'm looking forward to trying this out! :)
