This afternoon I visited the Hong Kong Bakery (Mountain View, CA), and brought home a full plate's worth of wheat-free sweets.

In addition to a generous sized chocolate Rum Ball, I tried a small serving of Mango Pudding with a very authentic, fresh mango flavor, and three types of rice cakes -- one steamed sugar rice cake, a banana rice cake, and another banana rice cake with red bean paste.

The chocolate rum ball was soft and sweet, almost cake-like inside, and rum-laced. It was coated with chocolate sprinkles on the outside.

I also purchased a small bag of chocolate fortune cookies at this local bakery to give to others. These did contain wheat, so I didn't try them, but they looked fresh and crunchy.

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