Easter Resources 2011

April 8, 2011

It’s way overdue for me to dust off this blog and get it ready for Easter. It’s funny how life flies away with you and you realize it’s been almost a year since posting! But since Easter, for so many, is a celebration of freedom, it’s important to remember that we ought to be supporting the freedom of others around the world with the gifts that we buy and give this month. I present to you:


First and foremost, the chocolate:

Equal Exchange:

Mini chocolate bars, and larger bars with such fantastic flavors as Dark Chocolate with Almonds, Mint Chocolate, Milk Chocolate Hazelnut, Orange Dark Chocolate, and Caramel Crunch with Sea Salt

Theo Chocolate:

Great gift sets, such as this chocolate and coffee pairing. $24.00

Please note: Dagoba chocolates is owned by Hershey’s. Be careful! Only the Conacado bar is fair trade certified! But showing Hershey’s that there is a market for this chocolate bar is very important. Buy it, and write to them to tell them WHY you bought it! Also check out $3.45 or $35.40 for 12.
