Ethical Chocolate Bar of the Week: December 4th

The ALTER ECO Dark Velvet Chocolate bar

Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App

The word “velvet” still doesn’t quite do justice to the smoothness of this bar. What would you call the sensation of letting yourself sink steadily into a pleasant dream? Or the feeling of a fluffy cat rubbing herself gently against your leg? Or the sound of a slow jazzy saxophone? Sometimes smoothness is too smooth to fit into vocabulary, much like this bar. Go out and try it and you’ll understand.

Here’s where to get it.

ALTER ECO makes a variety of fair trade goods, including quinoa, sugar, rice and this chocolate. And not only are they committed to seeing that the small-farm producers of these products get the quality prices they deserve, but they also seek out all natural and organic ingredients and bear the Objective Carbon Zero label.
