Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate, Cherry and Nut Theme Week.
Today's Dark Chocolate Cherry Nut bar from Cave Man Foods (Walnut Creek, CA) contained nuts, dried fruits and chocolate. Almonds, sunflower seeds and cashew bits gave the bar a satisfying crunchy texture and fresh nut flavor. Unlike many snack bars, I tasted the nuts first, and not sugars. I enjoyed the low "sweet" level. Dried Bing cherries, dried cranberries and raisins supplied just the right amount of concentrated tart fruit flavor zing.
The dark chocolate coating on the bottom of the bar played second fiddle to the aforementioned nuts and fruits and contributed a hint of rich, chocolatey flavor that harmonized well with the cherries, nuts and other ingredients.
Cave Man Foods Founder, Chris Running, was attracted to making healthy, tasty snack foods that our cave man ancestors might have eaten. His line-up of bars and chicken jerky adhere to a Paleo-friendly philosophy (that emphasizes food items such as nuts, seeds, meat, fruits and vegetables, and keeping physically active).
All of the company's bars (and chicken jerky offerings) are certified gluten free. (They also leave out GMO ingredients and peanuts.)
