Today was Day #5 of Chocolate and Cinnamon Theme Week. And, even better, this bag of "Flavor Grove" Almonds from Planters featured Mr. Peanut -- the company's beloved monocle- and top hat wearing legume. No other peanut in the shell that I've seen wears white gloves and carries a black cane. Mr. Peanut is one classy nut.

The cocoa and cinnamon almonds in this single serving bag were not too sweet -- which I liked.

Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Cinnamon Theme Week. Those who follow this blog know that I avoid wheat/gluten, which means I am largely cake, cookie and donut-deprived. It's probably better that way; however, I do miss some of these items occasionally.

So I was thrilled to find these bad boys -- Gluten Free Cinnamon Sugar and Chocolate Dipped Donuts from Kinnikinnick Foods (Alberta, Canada). I heated these up for a few seconds, and enjoyed one of each flavor with a mug of hot tea.
