Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Cowboy Country Theme Week.

Today's Cowboy Chocolate bar was made for Farm Supply Company (San Luis Obispo, CA), a farmer-owned cooperative that has catered to Central Coast farm, home and ranch needs for more than six decades.

The Farm Supply Company store in San Luis Obispo (one of several locations on the central coast) was filled with cowboy hats and all kinds of outdoor farm and ranch gear. In the parking lot, we paused to look at some large wagons and windmills. This farm supply store (established in 1950) was the real deal.

I walked out with a sturdy green feed bucket, a sample packet of mealworms (marketed for chickens)* and an orange bandana...and three chocolate items.

Make no mistake about it, today's milk chocolate bar with toffee and slivered almonds had a pleasant milk chocolate and toffee aroma, and was also very sweet.

*Yes, there are chocolate covered mealworms, but these were not for personal consumption. For those who are curious, these mealworms were used as a visual aid, in a children's science class on micro creatures and bugs. Thank you to Farm Supply for letting me have a small sample packet of these, as a 5-pound bag would have been overkill for this city dweller.
