Today was Day #10 of Chocolate, Fruits and Nuts Theme Week.
There are many snack bars, energy bars and trail mixes that have incorporated chocolate into fruit, nut and seed products, for example, this Chocolate Cherry Cashew flavored bar from Probar LLC (Park City, UT).
This snack bar is one of six different flavors in the company's Bite Organic Snack Bar line of dairy-, gluten- and soy-free, individually wrapped bars.
The bar had 6 grams of protein which may have contributed to a more satisfying tasting experience. Cashew butter, cashews, flax and chia seeds, and oats helped contribute some protein. Unlike some other ultra-sweet snack bars (this one had 10-11 grams of sugar), I didn't feel like I'd be suffering from a post sugar high crash a few hours later. (Thank you Probar.) It had a soft, chewy and slightly malty or grainy texture as well.
The bar contained cocoa, chocolate liquor and cocoa butter; but the chocolate flavors were almost too subtle to detect. However, better this than an overload of chocolatey sweetness in a snack bar that I take on a hike or might eat any time of day. Odd how sweetness levels are great for one item but not for others.
