Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Coffee Theme Week. There are many ways to enjoy coffee, and not always in beverage form.
Today's Mocha Crisps were from Blue Tree Gourmet, LLC (Sun Valley, CA). The company offers a line of oat-based crisps, including two containing chocolate (Mocha and Chocolate Chip).
The aroma for this granola/biscuit was oat-forward with very faint mocha and vanilla notes. These substantial crisps had a robust, crunchy, crispy, oat-y texture, and were very lightly sweetened (thank you).
The Mocha Crisps had a very authentic oat-y flavor, from aroma to finish, with faint cocoa and mocha, and very faint sunflower seed background notes.
These hearty crisps with a whole oat biscuit flavor would go well with coffee, mocha or hot chocolate, especially on a chilly, foggy day.
