Even though I'm not originally from Maine, it's not like I'm from THAT far away. I'm a New Hampshirite! But I had still never heard of Needhams, until I moved here. I've heard people mention them in passing in the three years that I've lived here, but never got around to trying them. That is, until today. Our pal Lori from the Q Morning Show graciously gifted me one today. I was so excited to try this brand new chocolate treat that Mainers rave about. The only problem was, it's not brand new. It's basically a Mounds - chocolate covered coconut. Now some people will say that it's different from a Mounds because a Needham has potatoes in it. But trust me...it tastes just like a Mounds.

Big shout out to Robin's Needhams, which is where my first came from. Food Network also has a great recipe here if you want to take a stab at making your own.
