Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Cherry Theme Week.

Today's Dark Chocolate Cherry Tahoe Trail Bar was distributed by King Bars, LLC (Reno, NV). This chewy, mahogany-colored, trail bar contained brown rice syrup, gluten free oats, chocolate chunks, dried Bing cherries, soy protein, cranberries and peanuts. There was also a vague hint of spice/cardamom.

Not everyone cares for the taste and texture of soy protein. But, the chocolate, cherries and peanuts covered up most of that. Certified Gluten Free and Vegan, this compressed bar contained 10 grams of protein.

The tagline for this bar: "Fuel for the Journey." Good thing. Most people need above-candy-bar-level fuel for their busy lives.

My current journey is to visit all the East Bay Regional Park District Parks in Northern California in my spare time; and it's been a deeply rejuvenating experience spending time in open spaces and observing scenery and wildlife.) Bars like this come in handy for hikes in the hills.

I can appreciate the sentiment of the Tahoe Trail Bar founder, Wes King, whose words were printed on the package:

"I am inspired by the crunch of the dirt under my shoes, the sweet silence of skiing powder, and the journey of hiking to the top of mountain peaks."

Welcome to Day #1 of Chocolate, Cherry and Berry Theme Week.

Today's Chocolaty Cherry Goat Cheese was from Celebrity Goat (Canada goat milk).

What's that you say? Goat cheese? Think cherry and chocolate cheesecake, only slightly less sweet and a teensy bit cheesier.

This petite, plump cheese log was made with cocoa-colored, creamy goat cheese, chocolaty bits (cocoa, coconut oil, sweetener), Dalmatia cherry, and assorted other ingredients* and preservatives.

A few slices of this cheese would add visual interest to any cheese plate.

Ingredients: Pasteurized goat's milk, sugar, partially hydrogenated coconut oil, cocoa, water, fructose, corn syrup, cherries, modified corn starch, mono and di-glycerides, salt, potassium sorbate, soy lecithin, fruit pectin, citric acid, lactic acid, ascorbic acid, microbial enzymes, bacterial culture, natural and artificial flavors.
