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

This Chocolate Cheezecake from Daiya Foods (Vancouver, British Colombia) contained coconut oil and creamed coconut, giving this dessert a creamy mouthfeel and texture.

However, this "cheezecake" (flavored with chocolate and carob) contained no cream. It was free of dairy, soy, gluten and eggs and most all common allergens.

The cheesecake even had a layer of relatively light and cake-like crust on the bottom. It comes unadorned, so that you can add a variety of your own toppings if you'd like.

Daiya cheezecake is available in New York, chocolate, key lime and strawberry flavors.

Welcome to the first day (Day #1) of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week.

I picked up these Sotsak Kakaoboll Cocoa and Coconut Covered Oat Pastries at the local IKEA store (East Palo Alto, CA).

These confections were fairly light, almost cake-like in texture, which caused me to re-read the ingredients list. Unfortunately, I found these were not gluten free. They contained flour. This does happen occasionally.
