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 17+ years, I'm still eating a different chocolate every day. Happily, even after 6,200+ chocolates, there are still many more to try. Thank you to all who continue to be part of this global adventure.

Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week.
Today's Coconut Almond Chocolate Date Bar was distributed by Simply Gum, Inc. (Brooklyn, NY).
Made with a relatively short list of ingredients
Subtle aroma notes for this bar with a pleasant, substantial chewy texture included: chocolate, coconut, and dried fruit (date).
Flavor notes included: light chocolate (thin surrounding layer); and at the core of this bar: coconut, mild nut (almond) and sweet date. There was a very faint coconut cookie/macaroon quality--made better by the addition of almonds and chocolate--and (an imagined) vanilla flavor.
Another plus: it wasn't overly sweet (thank you).
Ingredients: Organic Deglet Noor Dates, Organic Dessicated Coconut, Roasted Almonds, Organic Dark Chocolate (Organic Chocolate Liquor, Organic Coconut Sugar, Organic Cacao Butter), Sea Salt
