Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate Surprise Theme Week.

Mushrooms in your hot chocolate? The folks at Four Sigmatic (Finland) believe in the benefits of drinking mushrooms and superfoods; and they offer a range of tea, coffee and cacao mixes with different mushroom inclusions.

Today's Mushroom Hot Cacao Mix contained cacao powder, coconut palm sugar, reishi mushroom extract, cinnamon, cardamom and stevia. Reishi mushrooms are thought to help support "sleep and occasional stress."

The organic, vegan, paleo, decaf mix was made with "pure Peruvian cacao" and contained 500 grams of organic, linden log-grown red reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) per serving. 

One serving single-serving packet of dry mix was only 25 calories (more if you neutralize the health benefits and add cream of course).

Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate Surprise Theme Week.

Thank you to Maya who carefully transported today's bar back to the U.S. after a trip to Italy, where she found this dark chocolate (50.8%) bar from Santomiele s.r.l. (Prignano Cilento, Salerno, Italy).

Wrapped in packaging printed with an attractive watercolor illustration of an ancient amphitheater, and tied with a chocolate brown ribbon, this chocolate bar had classic, smooth, even dark chocolate flavor with a subtle hint of warm vanilla.
