Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Cashew Theme Week, and Happy April Fool's Day.

Today's Milk Chocolate Cashews were distributed by 21st Century Snack Foods (Ronkonkoma, NY). Yes, West Coasters, there really is a hamlet named Ronkonkoma, and it's located in Islip, on Long Island.

Today's roasted cashew nuts were covered in milk chocolate -- giving them a fairly creamy melt and pleasant, traditional milk chocolate flavor. The cashews provided a crunchy center.

Roasting cashews can give them a bit more flavor; but more subtle nut flavors can be harder to taste in chocolate confections.
