Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Dates Theme Week.
Today's Cacao Fruit and Nut Bites were distributed by Sun and Swell foods (Santa Barbara, CA).
These round bites with an appealing soft crunch (cacao nibs?) were made from just five ingredients: organic cashews, organic dates, organic raisins, organic cacao and organic cinnamon. They were not too sweet (thank you); and the cinnamon gave them a subtle spice kick.
Although not nut-free, these soy-free, dairy-free and gluten-free bites would be a great snack for those avoiding common allergens.
*The label read: one 3-piece package (one serving) weighed 1.6 oz. (45 g.), and contained 200 calories. The package I purchased actually contained four pieces. I calculated weights and calories, for two pieces, based on 2/3 of one package, per label.
