Today was the last day (Day #14) of a double-stuffed Chocolate and Mint Theme Week.
This certified organic and fair trade Peppermint Creme Chocolate bar was crafted by Mama Ganache (San Luis Obispo, CA). A dark chocolate (70% cocoa content) exterior enveloped a white peppermint creme filling; and the flavors were natural tasting and well balanced, with a wave of refreshing mint.
While Mama Ganaches chocolates are tasty, another important part of this company's story revolves around the founders philosophy. Mama Ganache is a bean-to-bar maker that creates bars and filled chocolates with certified organic and fair trade chocolate.
Mama Ganache founders support efforts that help prevent social harm (e.g. the use of child slavery in the production of cocoa) through Fair Trade certification. The company also supports the efforts of the non-profit, Project Hope and Fairness -- to assist West Africa cocoa farmers who are working on organic certification.
