      The way I crack a coconut is by putting it in like a Walmart bag and throw it on the concert 😂 simple, fast, and easy.

                                        6:15 Claire.. It's not "Double Toasted"... Its 2 almonds that are toasted. 2 almonds per bar = Double, Toasted Almonds.

                                          Brad: “I love almond joys!”
                                          Also Brad: “I never liked how wet the coconut was.”

                                            I think the online description meant 'two toasted almonds' - they tried to be clever but failed by saying 'double toasted alomnds'.
                                            Claire deserves regular spa and detox retreats to compensate for taking all that white sugar for us!
