Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Almond Theme Week.

Maisie Jane Hurtado is a real person. She is a founder and driving force behind Maisie Jane's California Sunshine Products, Inc. (Chico, CA).

Maisie Jane founded the company while still in high school, and is a fourth generation almond farmer. She and her husband farm almonds in the Chico area.

Natural almonds, flavored almonds, chocolate covered almonds, and nut butters are all Maisie Jane specialties.

Today I sampled the company's Dark Chocolate Almonds. At the heart of these glossy pieces were crunchy, lightly roasted California almonds. The nuts were covered in dark chocolate that had a nice fudge brownie aroma and smooth dark chocolate flavor.

These Dark Chocolate Almonds were gluten free, and Kosher certified.

The abundant supply of almonds, walnuts and honey from the Chico/Butte County area are available to us, in part, because of the hard work of many farmers, bees, and beekeepers. Thank you all!
