You Butter Watch Out

Choc: Full of Nuts, the Incredible True Story of a Nut Butter Cup Called Ococoa and Its Rise to Greatness

Review from Edibles Weekly

A culinary coming-of-age tale in which Ococoa, a young Los Angeles native, overcomes societal expectations and confronts cultural stereotypes to reach sweet success, learning gritty gourmet life lessons along the way.

Starting with the treat’s humble beginnings as dark chocolate, organic peanut butter, and alaea sea salt, the story follows the charming confection through its many transformations — the experimental macadamia guava phase, neoclassic hazelnut dealings, the almond cheery stage, and a stint in the heightened state of sesame fig.

Artfully crafted, the richly layered characters cause an intense hunger for more.

It’s nothing short of a delicious debut.
