Chocolate of the Day: 

Amazing Grass
Organic Green SuperFood
Chocolate Whole Food Energy Bar
Good - Good +
Weight: 2.1 oz. (60 g.) in 1 bar
Calories: 230 calories in 1 bar
Cost: $2.50 total bar
Purchased from: Whole Foods, in Palo Alto, CA

This Organic, raw, vegan Green SuperFood bar (distributed by Amazing Grass, San Francisco, CA) was so jam-packed with gluten and dairy free ingredients, such as greens (spinach, alfalfa, spirulina, broccoli), nuts, seeds, dried fruit, cacao nibs, and peppermint, that it could have been a meal by itself. Dates and agave nectar provided a moist, slightly chewy texture and sweetness. This green, "alkalinizing" bar was coated in chocolate.

I'd seen two different versions of this bar this month in local stores (both versions shown at right), likely the result of a recent packaging change. The two bars were the same weight and the ingredients and calorie count appeared to be the same. I tried both to be sure. Sure enough, they tasted the same too.

Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Nibs Theme Week. And, even though the peppermint flavor was difficult to pick out in this tasty green salad bar, today was also Day #1 of Chocolate and Mint Theme Week.
