Your favorite candy bar used to give you happy butterflies — until you found out about its less than fair trade ways.
Indulge honorably with Sugar-Coated Radical chocolate, made using only fair and direct trade goods. The superior beans hail from Colombia, Ghana, and Venezuela, with a whopping 10 percent of sales (typically, just 1 to 2 percent) given back to the farmers.
And that’s not to mention the taste.
Once you sample the artisan creations (Ghanaian bar with wild blueberries and pink peppercorns; milk chocolate, toasted almonds, and Alderwood-smoked sea salt; white chocolate, saffron, pistachios, and sugared rose), you may forget your own portion-control principles.
The almost-too-pretty-to-eat confections come wrapped in compostable, postconsumer-recycled packaging.
Consider them a guiltless pleasure.
