Welcome to Day #1 of Chocolate and Almond Theme Week.

Today's first entrant in this nut-themed chocolate week was a generously sized snack bar from Bobo's Oat Bars (Boulder, CO).

This relatively soft, chewy bar was made from gluten free oats, organic dark chocolate chips, and dry roasted almonds. (The almond flavor was amped up a bit with a hint of almond extract.)

The company offers a line of individually-wrapped "Regular Bars." They also offer several "Gluten Free Bars" in different flavors*, such as their only chocolate entry: today's Chocolate Almond bar. These bars are "gluten free, vegan, kosher and non-GMO."

They'd be a good snack for a hike or bike ride.

Bobo's Oat Bars was founded by Beryl Stafford in 2005 in Boulder. (Bobo was/is an affectionate nickname for her eldest daughter.)

*Bobo's Oat Bars Gluten Free flavors listed on their site included: Peach, Maple Pecan, Lemon Poppyseed, Chocolate Almond, Apple Pie and Peanut Butter and Jelly.
