Morsey's Creamery - Gelato made from buffalo milk
I visited Morsey's Creamery (Palo Alto) again this evening (see write-up yesterday) to try their Stracciatella gelato (made from buffalo milk), topped with dark chocolate shavings. This was creamy gelato at its best, and not too sweet.
Thanks also to the herd of 400 water buffalo cows up near Sacramento (each with given names I'm told) making this all possible, and to those caring for them.
Off the Farm - Dark Fudge Energy Bar
And, a suitable second chocolate course seemed to be a Dark Chocolate Fudge Gluten Free Energy Bar from Off The Farm Foods, Inc., based in Redding, CA, where they still have cows, cowboys and a rodeo.
Although with 49 grams of total carbs, I felt slightly less energetic than I thought I might afterwards, and ready to take a nap. This would be a good meal replacement bar, for hungry cowboys, rather than a snack. (I'd tried a similar bar a few years ago.)
Ingredients: Dates, cashews, non-GMO corn fiber, gluten free oats, almonds, apples, chocolate (unsweetened chocolate, processed with potassium carbonate, sugar, coco butter, sunflower lecithin), cocoa powder, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, sunflower oil, Himalayan pink salt.
