For an interesting experience, try responding to questions with this two-word answer: "Surprise Me." Do you want paper or plastic? (I was asked at the grocery store). Surprise Me. Would you like ice in your water or not? Surprise Me. You may not always get exactly what you wanted. In fact, you may run the risk of getting something better. This is why, each year, I create a Chocolate and Surprise Me Theme Week, like this week.

I was in the mood for a bar I could take on a hike. Julie Cornelius, of Julie Bar LLC (Tucson, AZ) has created a line of organic, gluten free bars with a very short list of ingredients that are surprisingly good.  (I've found products with less than five ingredients are much more likely to taste better.) Previously I  sampled Julie's Chocolate Brownie bars with three ingredients. Today I tried the German Chocolate bars, with 1.) organic dates, 2.) organic walnuts, 3.) organic cocoa powder, and 4.) organic coconut. No dairy, no syrups, just plain goodness.

My hike today was cancelled due to rain, but I did have the unexpected opportunity to enjoy this bar outside for lunch. Whether you're scaling a mountain or walking around the block, this German Chocolate bar with a touch of flaked coconut would be great to carry along. Naturally rich and sweet, without the addition of sugar, it was a satisfying snack.

Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Surprise Me Theme Week.
