Chocolate of the Day: 

The Bliss Bar
Chia Mulberry bar
Weight: 1.1 oz. (31 g.) total bar
Calories: 142 calories
Cost: $4.19 for 1 bar
Purchased from: Country Sun Natural Foods, Palo Alto, CA

For those hoping to get your sugar buzz on, you may be disappointed with this disc-shaped bar. Organic, raw and gluten free, this Chia Mulberry "Endurance" bar from The Bliss Bar (Ashland, OR), was very lightly sweetened with raw honey and mulberries, and embodied a different approach -- chocolate as health food.

The bar was vegan and nut-free; and in addition to chia (seeds I'm assuming), it also contained pumpkin seed, maca, mesquite, hempseed and chaga.

Although not as initially eye-popping as a sugar and chocolate high, it was quite satisfying. And I did, in fact, feel much more productive this afternoon than I usually feel, after eating many other chocolates. I've noticed this effect before with similar bars.

Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Fruit Theme Week.
