Sugar-Coated Radical Chocolates Raise the Bar

Scrumptious, Fair Trade Confections

sugar-coated radical chocolate bar!

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.

Available at Sugar-Coated Radical, 680 Drewry Street, Virginia Highland (404-438-5854 or sugarcoatedradical.org); online at facebook.com, $4.50.
