Today was Day #4 of Chocolate, Grasses and Grains Theme Week.

If you can't have gluten or wheat but you feel like something quick and easy with some starch in it, a rice cake with chocolate is one option.

Sweet Dreams Organic Dark Chocolate rice cakes from Lundberg Family Farms (Richvale, CA) were enrobed in dark chocolate (66% cacao content) on one side, making them a bit more convenient to hold on the "dry" (un-enrobed rice) side.

These rice cakes were crunchy and a bit chewy, and would be great as a portable snack if (as with any chocolate item) you don't leave them in the sun or a hot car.

Lundberg Family Farms, located in Richvale, CA, is a family-owned and operated business, that's been in existence since 1937. Today the third and fourth generation members of the family are running the show, and maintain committed to whole grain, brown rice products and to using "eco-positive" farming techniques that will help create a sustainable business into the future. (About 10,000 of their 6,000 acres under cultivation are organic, and 6,000 acres are "Eco-Farmed".)

The Sweet Dream rice cakes were certified gluten-free, USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, and contained (30%) Fair Trade Certified Ingredients.
