Today was Day #3 of Chocolate, Banana and Cherry Theme Week. Last week, I was enjoying fresh tropical fruit and chocolates on the island of Maui. So, both today's Wow-Wee chocolate bar with macadamia nuts and chewy banana, and the Amaretto Cherry Almond truffle from the Surfing Goat Dairy, hail from this island in Hawaii.

Wow-Wee Maui's chocolate bar line is now fairly broad, but this bar with macadamia nut pieces, and bits of chewy banana was the original Wow-Wee chocolate bar.

The Amaretto Cherry truffle was made with goat milk/cheese, although I doubt most people would guess this, as the goat flavor is very difficult to detect.

I enjoyed these two chocolates with fresh cherry plums from a tree in my backyard, a fresh banana and an ice cold cherry juice drink. (Don't all cherries grow with googly eyes?)
