In 2006, my daughter bet I couldn't eat a different chocolate each day for a year. I enjoyed that year so much that, after 14+ years, I'm still eating a different chocolate each day. Happily, even after 5,375+ chocolates, there are still many more to try. Thank you to all who continue to be part of this global adventure.

Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and VWXYZ Theme Week, featuring chocolate items with origins and flavor inclusions that start with the letters V, W, X, Y and/or Z.
Today's Kind Clusters "dipped" Dark Chocolate Vanilla Cashew snack was from Kind LLC (New York City, NY). The company offers a growing line-up of bars, snacks, cereals and other offerings that include whole food ingredients: nuts, fruits, grains--and many items with dark chocolate.
These clusters offered great textural contrast, ranging from crunchy nuts (cashews and almonds) and quinoa, to a smooth dark chocolate base. (I admit, I have a soft spot for nuts and dark chocolate.) A touch of sea salt helped to balance out the sweetness (supplied by cane sugar and brown rice syrup).
And, once again this week, vanilla played a strong supporting role--adding uplifting, warm floral spice aroma and flavor that complemented nuts, dark chocolate and other ingredients.
