Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week.

When it comes to snacks and confections, the watchwords for the 21st century have been a return to simplicity, health, and transparency about labeling.

Today's RxBar Coconut Chocolate protein bar (distributed by Chicago Bar Company LLC, Chicago, IL) is a great example of a bar you might not have seen very often in the 1990s.

The relatively short ingredients list for the bar base read like a manifesto and received headline treatment on the wrapper: "3 Egg Whites, 6 Almonds, 4 Cashews, 2 Dates, No B.S."..."No Gluten, No Soy, No Dairy, No Added Sugar," it continued. Today's bar also included cacao, coconut and sea salt.

This bar was a well balanced blend of subtle fruit, nut, cacao and coconut flavors; and it was chewy, substantial and delightfully un-sweet.

Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week.

Today's high-end Dark Chocolate Covered Coconut confection was from Torn Ranch (Petaluma, CA).

What tasted like toasted, crunchy golden brown coconut pieces were coated with 72% cacao dark chocolate.

The chocolate tasted darker and richer and of higher quality than most large-scale offerings; and this combination was one of my favorite items this week.
