Ethical Chocolate Bar of the Week: September 18

The Madecasse 70% cocoa bar

Just as the description on the back of the package claims, “this is beyond chocolate.” Its intensely fine dark chocolate should be a delicacy because eating it makes you feel like you should also be sipping chardonnay at the Sebonack Golf Club and discussing the weather with acquaintances. Except you don’t have to spend a million dollars.

Here’s where to find it (other than the Sebonack Golf Club, of course).

Madecasse’s ethical impact goes far beyond that of Fair Trade and Organic certification. Sourced wholly from Madagascar, the cocoa is bought for prices higher than fair trade and the chocolate bars themselves are produced and packaged in Madagascar, creating high quality jobs. They’re also extremely environmentally friendly.  Read about it here.
