Day 73 – Taste of equality

19 Dec

You never feel bad eating chocolate, especially one that supports a good cause! Equal Exchange is a brand that works with local and small-scale farmers and their families to ensure they receive support and fair trades for their produce such as coffee, tea, sugar, bananas and of course cocoa and chocolate.

This organic dark orange tasted surprisingly bitter, to which someone guessed it at 80-85%… perhaps the organic nature of the ingredients lent to it being drier and less sweet, giving the impression it was darker than it seemed – it was only 65%!

The orange flavour wasn’t very strong, and it was a quite a hard bar so it could be nicely gnawed away at to pass time. It wasn’t my most favourite of oj chocos, but it’s nice to support the cause.

Rating: 3/5
