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

Today I enjoyed a Mojo Dark Chocolate Almond Coconut bar from Clif Bar and Company (Emeryville, CA).

This relatively "low glycemic*" bar was studded with organic dark chocolate pieces/chips, made with Non-GMO ingredients, and contained 8 grams of protein.

The Clif Bar Mojo Sweet and Salty Trail Mix Bar was part of an ever-expanding family of individually wrapped energy bars, snacks and beverages that includes Clif, Mojo, Kit, Luna, Nut Butter Filled and other bar brand variations. (Luna bars seem to cater more toward women. Kit Bars are designed by co-owneer Kit Crawford.)

*This bar contained 20 grams Carbohydrates, including fiber. Only 10 grams are considered sugars.

**The company was founded in 1992, and Gary Erickson named the company after his inspirational dad named Clif. The original Clif Bar was apparently created in the early 1990s, after a 175-mile bike ride. Yup, that would do it.
