Did you know that a large axolotl is worth 4 cacao beans (according to some ancient bartering system)? Not only can you brush up on your cacao exchange knowledge¬†thanks to sweetriot, but you can also enjoy the fact that this delicious chocolate bar probably contains the equivalent of several turkey eggs, or perhaps even a small rabbit. It also tastes a lot better than all of those things. And it’s fair trade. So go get one!


Here’s where to find it.

The Newman’s Own Organics Orange Dark Chocolate bar



Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App


Refreshingly sweet, this Newman’s Own bar brings a delicate hint of orange into a good balance between dark and milk chocolate. What’s more Newman’s Own chocolate is certified by one of my personal favorite labels, Rainforest Alliance, which follows standards set forth by the Sustainable Agriculture Network to ensure both fair labor practices (and prices for the farmers) as well as sustainable farming methods and a reduced overall environmental footprint. It’s win-win for farmers, planet Earth and you and I.


Here’s where to buy it!
