Fair Trade Trick-or-Treat Chocolate
Earlier this morning Kara offered some good advice to Q&A; reader Meghan Q. regarding her quest for "reasonably priced, reasonably healthy Halloween fare." While Fair Trade Trick-or-Treat Chocolate from Global Exchange/Sweet Earth Organic Chocolates may be more expensive than regular Halloween candy, not only does it look delicious - it is a clever way to spread the word about fairly traded chocolate (consider all of the parents gee-whizing over this unusual candy). Sure it has sugar and calories, but the natural ingredients make it healthier than typical holiday candy with hydrogenated vegetable oil and potassium sorbate. This yummy treat is nothin' but good ol' sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, whole milk, brown rice, brown rice syrup, soy lecithin, sea salt, vanilla packaged in 100% biodegradable cellophane.
