Today was Day #6 of Chocolate, Fruits and Nuts Theme Week, and today's snack (with all three of these components) was Gone Nuts! Clusters of Cacao with Almonds, Raisins, Blueberries and Coconut from Living Intentions (Point Richmond, CA).

My favorite thing about this raw food snack was that it was not too sweet. Crunchy raw almonds were covered with a light coating of cacao, and a bit of coconut, raisin and blueberry.

Today was Day #5 of Chocolate, Fruits and Nuts Theme Week; and I enjoyed a Blueberry and Dark Chocolate bar from Mamma Chia (Carlsbad, CA).

Mamma Chia focuses on producing high-quality, organic chia-based food and beverages. (Their tagline is "Seed Your Soul.") The first Mamma Chia product that caught my eye a few years ago was a striking-looking bottled beverage -- I believe it was a juice blend with chia seeds.

This bar was moist (without being messy) and chewy with lots of authentic blueberry flavor. Certified organic, this bar was also gluten-free and non-GMO. A layer of dark chocolate coated the underside of the bar. It was a bit sweet for my taste, but had a nice, substantial taste and texture without being too heavy or relying on lots of additives.
