Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Mango Theme Week.

Today's "Coco Mango" flavor, from a line of Coco Keeno chocolate products, was made with dried, organic mango from Wonder Food Co. (Palm Desert, CA). Small mango pieces were drenched in organic dark chocolate. The 70% cacao coating was rich enough to make a small serving satisfying.

And, who doesn't like a nice monkey mascot when it comes to chocolate? (Previously on Chocolate Banquet I featured a Chocolate and Monkey Theme Week, with a lot of bananas and peanut butter and monkeys of all types.) This particular, almost mango-colored, golden tamarin monkey (pictured on today's chocolate package) lives in trees in Central/South America, and is a Coco Keeno mascot. Wonder Food Co. donates part of the proceeds from this product line to preserving rainforest/monkey habitat.

Thank you to Elana at SweetE Organic, for continuing to carry great organic, gluten free, preservative-free options, so that everyone can enjoy a sweet item now and then.
