Sometimes I eat chocolate for breakfast, especially when I know I'll be out and away from a computer for most of the day. Today was one of those days. I'm traveling to Las Vegas, and will likely stop at some chocolate shops there later today.

Today is Day #1 of Chocolate and Rice and Grains Theme Week.  I can't eat wheat/gluten, so this rules out most chocolate cookies and cakes. Fortunately, there is a great selection of chocolate items made with rice and other wheat alternatives.

Today's Tin Roof bar from Coco-luxe Confections (San Francisco) is one example. The crispy rice was blended into the relatively light marshmallow and peanut filling of this bar. It must be a challenge to keep the rice ultra-crispy this way; however, this Tin Roof bar was an amalgamation of fun flavors. I also liked the short ingredient list. That's my kind of bar -- not a lot of extra stuff or preservatives.
