Decades ago, hiking snacks were largely DIY -- bags of homemade granola with chocolate chips or MandMs tucked into a rucksack or backpack were popular. Today, if you don't have time to make your own hiking or climbing snack, there are a wide range of interesting packaged, chocolate choices available.

Today's 41% cocoa Pinnacle Coconut Milk Chocolate and Almonds bar from MaryJanesFarm (Moscow, ID) was self-described as "High Attitude" Organic Chocolate -- part of a line of High Attitude foods that looked very suitable for backpacking, camping or hiking trips.

This relatively substantial bar (thickness probably helps prevent meltage on a warm day) had an authentic milky flavor, and smooth mouth feel; it contained both whole milk powder and coconut oil. Small pieces of almond embedded throughout the bar offered some complementary crunchy texture.

This Non-GMO, gluten free Coconut Milk Chocolate was created with cocoa from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms.

Today was Day #6 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week.
