Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and Berries Theme Week, and Day #1 of Chocolate and Wild West Theme Week.
Today's package of Dark Chocolate Wild Berry Mountain Thins from Brown-Haley--also known as Brown and Haley* (Tacoma, WA)--were enjoyed in the mountains of the old West, in the Black Hills of South Dakota, at Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse (a very large statue emerging from a granite mountain) and Rapid City.
These bark-like squares of dark chocolate contained dried blueberries and "raspberry crunch," creating a sweet blend of bright red berry aroma and flavor.
Also enjoyed was a mountainous vanilla ice cream sundae with a Native American inspired berry topping.
*The company is perhaps best-known for Almond Roca, a tiny log-shaped, individually-wrapped confection wrapped in shiny foil with a butter-crunch toffee center, covered in chocolate and then in chopped nuts. The company also makes a Mountain Bar that may have been inspired by Mount Tacoma in Washington State.
