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

The "Gone Nuts!" family of healthy snack products from Living Intentions (Point Richmond, CA) include various combinations of raw and sprouted nuts combined with other flavors--like today's White Chocolate blend.

The cashews were raw, not roasted. (They were air dried.) The almonds were sprouted.

This White Chocolate mix had a mild, naturally crunchy texture, with a subtle, balanced salty and sweet taste.

The nuts were "coated with a premium clear agave nectar, coconut powder, cocoa butter and mesquite pod powder," and seasoned with sea salt.

However, unlike most white chocolate offerings, this mix also had cocoa nibs--not just cocoa butter--for some tiny bursts of rich and "real"* (albeit faint) chocolate flavor.

*I taste some white chocolate items; but haven't counted them as my chocolate of the day unless they also contain some cocoa solids (cocoa nibs, milk or dark chocolate, cocoa mass or liquor, etc.).
