Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Almond Theme Week.

Theo Chocolate, Inc. (Seattle, WA) has produced a family of Kids' Whole Grain Crunch bars—available in three different flavors: Banana (milk), Raspberry (dark), and today's Almond 55% Dark chocolate.

The crunch in this bar came from almond bits, puffed brown rice and puffed quinoa—that added interesting texture, without hiding the chocolate taste.

If you think this kid-sized bar contained down-sized or watered down dark chocolate flavor, you'd be incorrect. The chocolate was fairly rich, with balanced fruit acidity.

Today's Kids' Crunch Almond bar was "Gluten Free, Soy Free, Kosher, Vegan;" and it bore three certification-related symbols: 1.) fair for life (Fair for Life Social and Fair Trade Certification Programme); 2.) USDA Organic; and 3.) Non-GMO Project Verified.
