Chocolate of the Day:

Food On Purpose
Choco Roonies
Weight: .5 oz. (14.1 g.) (estimate)/ 3 oz. (85 g.) total package
Calories: 70 calories (estimate)
Cost: $6.99 total package/bag

Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week.
Since I believe in a balanced diet, I had one Choco Roonie and one "Bird In The Nest" -- both diminutive raw macaroons from Food On Purpose (Santa Fe, New Mexico). These mostly organic, gluten free, dairy free bite-sized coconut treats were sweetened using agave rather than refined sugars.

The Choco Roonie macaroon was a wee bit dry, but good; and it contained a barely detectable pinch of maca powder and Celtic sea salt.

The Bird in the Nest macaroon (seen stacked on top of the Choco Roonie in picture at right) was made with raspberries and coconut, and contained no chocolate. It was quite good -- not too sweet, a quality I always appreciate.
