Welcome to Day #11 of Chocolate and Nuts Theme Week.
Good and Delish Chocolate Almonds were not picked from a tree. Rather the package they were in was plucked off a shelf at Walgreens; but it is nice to think that both almonds and cacao came from a tree originally.*
Glossy, thick dark chocolate shells contained roasted almonds; and the chocolates had a slightly bittersweet, roasted flavor.
*Besides almonds and cacao seeds/beans, other plant-related ingredients in this product included vanilla, corn, soy.
The remaining ingredient was confectioners glaze: the substance that creates a shiny protective coating on many candy items. Some of this ingredient (commonly used for candy and to coat pills, and classified as"generally recognized as safe") comes from a resin that certain beetles leave on trees.
