Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Fruit Salad Theme Week.

This Supah Stah Mulberry Dark Chocolate Superfood Bar was made from 100% Organic ingredients, and was vegan, grain free and gluten free, with no refined sugars.

A tiny riot of coconut flakes and bits of mulberries adorned the back of this smooth, dark bar, that was sweetened with coconut palm sugar. I've found that coconut palm sugar gives chocolate (and other desserts) a flavorful sweet taste (think caramelized or maple sugar), without the jangly buzz of white sugar.

The chocolate was very smooth and buttery, partly due to added cocoa butter, with some added chewiness from the coconut flakes and mulberry bits.

Mulberries are a wonderful earthy golden color. Inspired by this fruit, I paired this Mulberry bar with a golden fruit and vegetable salad - with yellow and orange carrots, fresh orange, nectarine, caraway seeds, raisins, a very small pinch of salt, and arugula.
