Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Cereal/Grains Theme Week. Eating gluten free, rice plays a big role this week's chocolates.

This milk chocolate Fatty Bar from Tumbador Chocolate (Brooklyn, NY) contained both puffed and toasted rice, and a sly surprise in the form of candied ginger. I felt I was tasting  a high-end Nestle's Crunch - type bar, with a bit more interesting texture (due to the two kinds of rice) when the ginger turned up toward the end.  (Note: this bar did contain some gluten -- I'm guessing from the malt flavoring.)

The Tumbador website showed an interesting array of bars and other chocolates. Specialties: Certified Kosher, a dairy free line, and chocolates made with exotic combinations/ingredients. Look forward to trying their dark mole bar.
