Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Peanuts Theme Week.
Today's Organic Chocolate Peanut Butter (bar) was from Jonesbar (Manasquan, NJ). The company offers a line or organic, snack bars with, typically, just 4-5 ingredients.
This compressed, chocolate brownie-toned bar had dried fruit (complex, layered, high-quality date), peanut, dark chocolate, fig, mocha, and very faint, balanced earth and warm spice) aroma and flavor notes. (Note: there were no actual fig or coffee ingredients, just authentic nuanced flavors.)
The hand-crafted bar had a soft, chewy, crunchy texture (thanks to moist date, crunchy peanut butter bits, skillfully incorporated chia seeds).
There were no added sugars (thank you). And a trace of sea salt helped temper the natural date sweetness.
Ingredients: Organic dates, organic peanuts, organic 100% cacao chips, organic chia seeds, Himalayan pink sea salt.
