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

There is something decadent about eating cherries in winter. In early January, I found some (from the Southern hemisphere) in a Whole Foods Market. They were very pricey, and very delicious.

Today, I was able to enjoy some of the same tart sweet cherry flavor with this Cherries, Sunflower Seeds and Sea Salt bar from free2b Foods (Boulder, CO). The company is perhaps best known for its allergen-free Sun Cups (chocolate cups filled with sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter).

The dark chocolate that made up this bar was smooth and naturally cherry flavored. A generous sprinkling of roasted, whole sunflower seeds provided soft crunch to the texture. As with most flavored chocolate, eat while fresh for best flavor.

Made in a dedicated facility, this free2b bar was free from the top 12 allergens: peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, gluten, soy, egg, corn, coconut, sesame, mustard, fish and shellfish. Great for those with food sensitivities.

Ingredients: Unsweetened chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter, roasted sunflower seeds (sunflower oil), dried cherries (cherries, non-GMO cane sugar, sunflower oil, sea salt

Postscript: A second chocolate item today: a cup of soy cherry chocolate chip ice cream from an ice creamery and bakery at Facebook campus headquarters in Menlo Park, CA.
