Today was Day #9 of Chocolate and Fruit Theme Week. Julie's Organic, gluten free ice cream sandwiches -- petite rounds made with Glutenfreeda (Burlington, WA) gluten free, organic chocolate cookies -- tasted cheesecake-rich, but only tipped the scale at 200 calories each. A trace of organic cherry sauce was swirled throughout the cheesecake ice cream filling.

This "Apple of Love" candied apple flavored, dark chocolate (55%) bar from Maison Bouche (Oakland, CA) was unique. The dark chocolate bar base was smooth and pleasant, and I always enjoy Maison Bouche's pretty label designs.

I enjoy trying new flavored bars; however, I couldn't tell whether this apple flavoring came from natural or artificial sources. It could have been either one. Mixing apple with chocolate can be a challenging combination.

Today was Day #8 of Chocolate and Fruit Theme Week.
