ChocolateBet: April 15, 2010

Chocolate(s) of the Day:

1.) Pamela's Products 
Chocolate Walnut Cookies - 3 cookies
Good - Good +
Weight: 2.45 oz. (69 g.)/ 7.25 oz. (206 g.) in total package/box
Calories: 360 calories in 3 cookies
Cost: $3.49 in 1 box/package of cookies
Purchased from: Whole Foods Market, in Los Altos, CA

Because I can't eat gluten/wheat, I'm always happy to find wheat-free treats. Pamela's has been offering a wide range of gluten-free cookies for many years. (My favorites so far: the dark (double) chocolate chunk cookies, and the ginger cookies, although the latter don't have chocolate in them.) Today was Day #6 of Chocolate and Rice/Grains Theme Week. These chocolate chip walnut cookies contained three different types of rice flour (brown, white and sweet rice flours), and tapioca starch.

2.) Mel and Kat, LLC
Milk and Krunchies - DJ AM's toffee mix crispy treat - 1 piece/package
Good + - Very Good
Weight: 3.54 oz. (100 g.) in 1 piece/package
Calories: 420 calories in 1 package
Cost: $4.00
Purchased from: Sugar Factory, in the Mirage Hotel and Casino, in Las Vegas, CA

I had intended to have just one chocolate per day; however, traveling in Las Vegas this past week has taken it's toll. There are many temptations here, and I'm just talking about chocolate. Thankfully I'm not easily sucked into gambling or other vices. Today was my last day in Sin City, and I decided to take a stroll through the Mirage Hotel and Casino before heading to the airport and a flight home. In the process, I discovered the Sugar Factory. This sounded like a place that might carry a few fun chocolate items. I was happy to find this toffee flavored crispy treat -- perfect for Chocolate and Rice/Grains Theme Week. Sadly, I was informed that they had just sold the last of an item that would also have been a great match: rice crispy-type treats in the shape of cupcakes with peanut butter frosting. Ah well.
