Welcome to Day #11 of Chocolate and Almonds Theme Week(s).
Today's Nutty Nougat Organic Dark Chocolate (bar) was made by Nelly's Organics (Chatsworth, CA). (The company offers a variety of bars. This one contained cashews, almonds, and peanuts/peanut butter.)
This bar had a soft nougat and blend of light caramel, nutty and chocolate flavors and textures. (The filling also contained cocoa butter.) The mild, relatively thin dark chocolate coating wasn't the main act; however, the nougat filling wasn't loaded down with sugar (thank you!), so I could still taste the dark chocolate (fair trade, from Italy.)
Eating this bar refrigerated, as recommended, on a hot summer day was refreshing. (Best not to tuck this away on a shelf for several months. Note the advisory: "Keep refrigerated - Raw organic food without preservatives...Stays fresh outside the fridge for up to a week.")
Ingredients: Organic raw cashews, organic brown rice syrup, organic raw cacao butter, organic raw almonds, organic raw blue agave, organic peanut butter (organic peanuts), organic raw shredded coconut, organic raw vanilla beans and pink Himalayan salt. Organic chocolate coating: organic chocolate liquor, organic cacao butter, organic cane sugar, organic vanilla.
Allergen-related information: "Contains coconut, peanuts and tree nuts (cashews, almonds). Manufactured on equipment that processes peanuts and other nuts. May contain shell or pit fragments." "Soy free, plant-based, gluten free"
