Valentines Day Chocolate

Well, it's that time again... time to buy the one you love chocolate, right?! I heard yesterday it is the most given gift at Valentines day with flowers and jewelry close runners up.  But here's the real news. Most chocolate is grown and harvested by slaves. Many of which are children.  The documentary "The Dark side of Chocolate" reveals it all. Here is the link to the you tube film.
One way we can make a difference is to make an educated choice when we buy chocolate.  There are so many now to choose from! Check out the list on the Fair trade USA website  Happy Valentines day and may your chocolate be Fair Trade!
