NewTree's Milk Chocolate (31% Cocoa) Granola bar, with very subtle lime and green tea flavors, was today's selection for (Day #8 of) Chocolate and Lime (+ Ginger) Theme Week. NewTree also offers a Ginger chocolate bar, which I had eaten previously. I would have been happy to pair the ginger bar with this lime bar; but I bowed to the tyranny of the new here. So, the "+ Ginger" component was provided by a small mug of homemade, hot ginger tea.

Lab note: I also experimented with a lime ice cream float/soda, with the help of staff at Rick's Rather Rich Ice Cream. It made a lot of fizz, and showed some promise. I'll have to work on refining this formula in the next few days, in time for Chocolate and Air Theme Week.
