Do they make coconut chocolates so we will appreciate the other candies more than we would have otherwise?
I have to agree with Pig unless it’s a macaroon.
I’ll take ‘em if you don’t want ’em!
Pig is right. I remember the first (and last) time I bit into an Almond Joy bar. I gagged and threw up.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE coconut. I’ll take any chocolate in the box with it.
Why not look at the little guide sheet that shows which chocolates are which?

I’m not concerned about the CocoaBeach Nut. I’m concerned about the Mar-a-Lago Nut.
I like coconut. Anyway, it’s better than crunchy frog.
And an additional insight into the element of “chance”. At a local arcade here, there is a set up basketball game where one throws the ball into the hoop and gets a score every time the ball enters the hoop. Recently I hit, in chronological order, the numbers of 689, 699, 709, and 719 (with a few additional scores between the 709 and 719). What are the chances that you would get such a set of scores with the possibility of over at least 100 possible scores? What would the chance be that if I continued, I would hit a high of 729, and then 739?
I hate coconut so, SO much. I love that Pastis recognizes the atrocity of those tree droppings. Bill Watterson correctly understood the evils of it as well.
Pastis is making a Mounds out of a molehill.
I love coconut! I’ll take all your coconut chocolates if you don’t want them.
I was trying to figure out how to get the coconut without climbing the tree … then it hit me.
Rat should be grateful life is not fair – think of where he might be if it was.
As the late. great Douglas Adam’s would no doubt have known, the taste of each chocolate can be guaranteed to be almost but not quite entirely unlike that described in the contents list….
as for the taste of coconut, the solution is to mask it with citrus fruit….perhaps lime…. If only there was some kind of tasteful song about it.
…and the late, great Douglas Adams would also have hated any accidental apostrophes too. Sorry, finger trouble.

Ok, I’ll be the first to admit I am nuts about cocoa.
What are the odds Pig will get even with Stephan?
What’s wrong with Coconut? Heck, it’s even good as a topping on a Ham and Pineapple Pizza, lightly toasted a golden brown…
Yeah, what’s wrong with coconut? I love it. Much better than some of those sickeningly sweet chocolates with pink or orange on the inside! YUCK.
Without coconut, we wouldn’t have Pina Coladas. Reason enough for its existence.
We need the shells to make horse-galloping sound effects. Might as well use the insides for something…
I have three words for Pig: German. Chocolate. Cake.
And three more: Coconut. Cream. Pie.
My Mother used to make a “Toasted Coconut Pumpkin Chiffon Pie” that was to DIE for!
I love coconut but not with my SHRIMP! Who comes up with these abominations?
I’m sure all coconut lovers are now tweeting one another and plotting a mass protest.
Coconut is fine. It’s marshmallows that ruin everything.
Got more time?
Y’all are some Coconut haters! Love Love Love COCONUT!!! IT’S THE BEST THING ON THE PLANET!!!! Coconut Milk, Almond Joy, Mounds, Macaroons, Haystacks, Coconut Shrimp, COCONUT CREAM PIE IS MY FAVE!
Thus illustrating the Forrest Gump Principle.
You put the lime in the coconut, then call me in the morning.
So Pig is a snowflake? Those two things make his life unfair?
My family knows that if they don’t want to share something with me, just put coconut in it. I won’t touch it, even if it includes chocolate and strawberries. The only thing better than a strawberry is a chocolate covered strawberry. There is nothing good about coconut.
I think coconut is just one of those things you either love or hate. I personally can’t abide it in any form. I hated it as a kid and don’t like it much better now. Putting coconut in chocolate is to me the equivalent of putting ketchup on a hot dog for other people. The only difference is that it doesn’t bother me if other people like it.
Todays script is the story of my life…..
As with pineapple on pizza, coconut (especially toasted coconut) affords such divine delectation that not to like it might seem a perversity entailing its own condign punishment. In fact, if course, it is most often an unwilled wretchedness that deserves the full sympathy of those whose taste buds are functioning as God intended.
Apparently I’m one of the rare few who likes coconut candies.
100+ Comments and still going!
This shows that people are really passionate about what they like to eat. Please don’t try to impose your personal tastes upon others.
Discard your unwanted Mounds bars here <——
I have been in both camps. I loved coconut until I had a job unloading by hand 125# bales of shredded coconut from 7railroad boxcars meant for Major cookie manufacturer. At first it smelled good, the sweet then sickenly so. After the job was done I could no longer stomach even the smell of the stuff. It has been close to 40 years now and I am just beginning to like it again.
millions of Mounds and Almond Joy lovers can’t be all wrong.
But I love coconut candies!
M-m-m, coconut creme chocolates! I love it when people hate coconut, more for me. I also love the maple creme haters, more for me! So, um, yeah, you guys are right, coconut is terrible and you shouldn’t eat it, just send it to me, I’ll suffer for you.
Someone must like coconut and chocolate, or Mars would have stopped selling Almond Joy and Mound. Personally I love the coconut chocolates. It’s the orange creams I can’t stand.
I quite like the coconut ones, but I really dislike the hard or crunchy ones that stick to your teeth.
Congratulations Go Comics, you’ve doubled your clicks by use of the annoying “Overview”. You sure fooled you advertisers.
Pig is soooo correct! I can’t stand it when people ruin otherwise perfectly tasty treats by insisting on adding (ugh!) coconut! I guess that means Rat is right, too, but who cares?
Why is Rat always covered in ink after he draws a cartoon?
Pig, you MORON! Coconut is one of the things that makes chocolate worth eating. Anything to take away from chocolate by itself makes it a thousand times better.
I HATE COCONUTS!! But I do like Da Coconut Nut song: “Da Coconut Nut is a giant nut, if you eat too much, you get very fat”….
Coconut & Chocolate are one of the best combinations life has given us. Along with Caramel & Chocolate.
Sometimes I feel like a nut. Sometimes I don’t. I’ll take all of the coconut. The worst candies are the maple. Yeech.
