Today was Day #8 of Chocolate, Nut and Rice Theme Week. (Bonus Day), and Day #1 of Chocolate and Almond Theme Week.
Today's Dark Chocolate Trail Mix Bar from NuGo Nutrition (Pittsburgh/Oakmont, PA) was enhanced with Non-GMO rice protein crisp and brown rice crisps, providing an alternative to the many nutrition bars packed with soy protein. In fact the packaging stated that the company intended this gluten-free bar to provide "...nourishing food for people with sensitivities to wheat, dairy and soy." The bar also contained dark chocolate, almonds, pumpkin seeds and walnuts.
This bar was one of several gluten-free, pareve bars in the NuGo Nutrition line-up. The company prides itself on using "real" chocolate (vs. "chocolatey" or chocolate-like alternatives made with other vegetable fats added).
