I love chocolate. Period. So you can imagine my reaction when the awesome folks at Equal Exchange wanted me to review their new chocolate bars. They are a wonderful company, with a great mission and delicious products. I was honored.
Equal Exchange recently announced the addition of two new chocolate bars: Organic Ecuador Dark Chocolate (65% cacao content) and Organic Chocolate Caramel Crunch with Sea Salt (55% cacao content). Both bars, like all Equal Exchange chocolates and cocoas, are fairly traded and organic from small-scale farmer co-operatives. Taking great care to select recipes with as few ingredients as possible, these bars are soy- and gluten-free, and the Ecuador bar is vegan.
Both chocolate bars are savor-0n-the-tongue delicious. I made the mistake of offering my daughters a little taste of the Organic Chocolate Caramel Crunch with Sea Salt and never saw it again. I will be heading over to shop.equalexchange.coop to order some more.
