Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Nut Week.

This Chuao bar was a nice find. I was grumbling a bit because some of the other choices this week had nut bits ground down so finely that it was difficult to taste the actual nuts. This was not the case here.

Other nut-related items
I was hoping to submit an online order for a box of frozen Nutty Buddy ice cream cone desserts, but it looks like there are only one or two small outfits (e.g. Purity) that carry these any more; and I couldn't find someplace that will ship to my zip code in time for Chocolate and Nut week here. So the Nutty Buddys will have to wait.
