Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate, Fruit and Nut Theme Week.

Today's Qi'a Dark Chocolate Cranberry Almond bar from Nature's Path Foods (Blaine, WA) contained both fruit and nuts.

This Qi'a bar also contained seeds (chia and hemp); the soft chew was balanced by tiny, mildly crunchy chia seeds. The dark chocolate added a very subtle hint of rich chocolate flavor.

And the first ingredient listed (and dominant flavor/texture) came from shreds of coconut—a "fibrous one-seeded drupe," that people have called a fruit, a nut and a seed. So, the coconut's versatility earns it a guest appearance in this week's fruit and nut combination week.
