Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Cherries Theme Week, and Day #1 of Chocolate and "Tout Sweetener" Theme Week.

Despite the "No Sugar Added" description, these chocolate-covered cherries were quite sweet. So, those who cannot have sugar, but like sweet things, shouldn't feel deprived. The cherry in the middle was dried-fruit chewy, but not tough; however, I couldn't taste much of the natural cherry taste.

While white cane sugar is the most common sweetener included in chocolate, I'll be exploring other sweet substances combined with cacao this week, including, but not limited to: honey, maple sugar, raw sugar and -- such is the case  today -- no sugar, and/or artificial sweeteners.
