Chocolate of the Day: 

Jennies Gluten Free Bakery
Chocolate Sugar Free Macaroons
Weight: .56 oz. (16 g.) / 8 oz. (226 g.) total container
Calories: 70 calories in 1 macaroon
Cost: $ close-out sale price
Purchased from: Andronicos, Palo Alto, CA (now closed)

Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week.

These Chocolate Sugar Free Macaroons, from Jennies Gluten Free Bakery (Moosic, PA), were free of a number of things (lactose, wheat, gluten, casein, soy), but packed with surprisingly good taste and texture.

I enjoyed the fresh coconut taste of these macaroons, and a slight, but very appealing, crunchiness from flax seeds/meal. Sweetened with maltitol (a type of sugar alcohol), I detected no artificial flavor that I've experienced with some other sugar free products.
