Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Peanut Butter Theme Week.

Today's Muscle Milk Chocolate Peanut Caramel bar made for Cytosport, Inc. (Benicia, CA).

This generously sized, gluten free, high protein bar was covered in chocolate and contained a dense, chewy, core with 25 grams of protein and peanut pieces.

For additional protein and peanut flavor, I added (dipped the bar in) a little extra high-quality peanut butter.

Fun Facts about Peanut Butter

Like cacao, peanut butter dates back to the days of the Aztecs and Incas. However I would like to say thank you to American inventor, George Washington Carver, who is said to have promoted over 300 uses for the humble goober pea (legume), including peanut butter and/or paste.

Fun fact: Peanut butter is called pindakaas (peanut cheese) in the Netherlands—instead of pindabotr (peanut butter)—because the word butter refers only to products that contain real (dairy) butter.
