Today was Day #3 of Chocolate, Grains and Grasses Theme Week.

With a theme week like this, chocolate cereal seemed like a good fit. And, so, the featured cereal today was: Cascadian Farm Organic Chocolate Lover's Chocolate Granola.

This oat and rice containing blend from Small Planet Foods Inc. (a division of General Mills, Minneapolis, MN) technically was not gluten free*. (It contained malted barley extract, and the label also advised that it might contain traces of wheat.)

This Chocolate Lover's granola tasted fresh and crunchy with a uniform chocolate flavor; and it was sweet, without being too sweet.

*Those that follow this blog may know that I don't eat wheat or gluten. Therefore I appreciate labeling with advisories like this. Depending on what's listed as included (or what might be included) on the label, I can decide whether I want to try a small taste or not.
