Today we say goodbye to chocolate and cranberries and welcome Day #1 of Chocolate and Orange Theme Week -- with two different items and combinations.

Odwalla Protein Bars

Odwalla offers a line of reasonably priced protein bars, including today's Chocolate Chip Peanut bar. The peanut butter flavor and smooth, nut butter texture drew me in and provided satisfying taste.

I paired this Chocolate Chip Peanut bar with an Odwalla Orange Cranberry "nourishing" bar. The two went reasonably well together. I also took part of the Orange Cranberry bar and incorporated pieces of it into an ice cream sandwich.

Cream Ice Cream Sandwich

Berkeley, CA - based "Cream" has become a popular local cookie and ice cream sandwich shop chain in the San Francisco Bay Area in the last few years.

I visited the Cream San Jose location and bought two gluten-free chocolate chip walnut cookies to take home to make my own ice cream sandwich.

For the filling I mixed vanilla ice cream with bits of Odwalla Orange Cranberry Bar, and a splash of orange and tea flavored Qi liqueur from St. George Spirits (Alameda, CA). The resulting cookie and ice cream sandwich was sweet and delicious, and very filling.
