This week we’re thinking about fuel for your walks in these beautiful spring days, snacks for the kids as they go from school to practice to home and something to munch on as you sit at your desk.
Nuts, Chocolate and Fruit
Atlanta-based small batch chocolate maker Xocolatl produces lovely single-origin chocolate bars with beans sourced from around the world. But they also make trail mix in two flavors: “Smile with the Rising Sun” that has almonds, cashews, dark chocolate, pumpkin seeds, dried papaya and coconut and “Moonlight Through the Pines” with its combination of Georgia flavors including pecans, peanuts, dark chocolate, pumpkin seeds and dried peaches and cranberries. The folks at Xocolatl have been making these mixes since they opened in order to meet their own need for a quality trail mix that was more than just peanuts and pretzels. Our favorite? We couldn’t choose. They’re both delicious. What comes through with every bite is the high quality of the nuts and fruit. And those little squares of dark chocolate? Each one is a tiny treat. $10 per 7-ounce package. Xocolatl, Krog Street Market, 99 Krog Street, Atlanta. 404-604-9642. xocolatlchocolate.com
