ChocolateBet: April 20, 2010

Chocolate(s) of the Day:

1.) ProBar LLC
Koka Moka (bar) - 5/6 of 1 bar
Good +
Weight: 2.5 oz. (71 g.)/ 3 oz. (85 g.) in total bar
Calories: 300 calories in 5/6 bar
Cost: $3.59
Purchased from: Country Sun Natural Foods, in Palo Alto, CA

This ProBar was a great fit for Day #3 of Seed/Nut Butter and Fruit Theme Week (as well as Earth Day Week). In addition to a nut butter (organic peanut butter), the Koka Moka bar was chock full of other nuts (raw cashews, almonds and brazil nuts); seeds (organic raw sunflower, brown flax, and brown sesame seeds, and raw pumpkin seed, hemp seed, and organic cardamom, fennel and fenugreek seeds); and fruits (organic raisins and dates, pineapple, papaya and apples). My apologies to many more ingredients that I'm leaving out.

2.) Ococoa
Macadamia Guava (cup) - 1 cup
Good +
Weight: .62 oz. (17.5 g.) (estimate)
Calories: 89 calories (estimate)
Cost: $N/A
Purchased from: N/A

Also a fantastic fit for Seed/Nut Butter and Fruit Theme Week are Ococoa cups -- small chocolate parfait cups layered with nut, seed and fruit flavors. I like macadamia nuts; however, I don't recall having tried macadamia nut butter. It's probably one of the hardest nut butters to work with (other than brazil nut butter perhaps?). I enjoyed it most as the guava, chocolate and nut flavors all blended together.
