This bar with the long name: the Organic and Fairly Traded, Dark Chocolate Raspberry Tart Berries bar, was from Equal Exchange Chocolates (W. Bridgewater, MA). Equal Exchange sources ingredients from cacao, coffee and tea farmers and sells finished products to consumers.

Equal Exchanges sources ingredients from small farmer co-ops -- groups that have been at the forefront of discussions about fair trade (that involves, among other things, giving farmers an above market price for their cacao beans).

This smooth, kosher, 60% cacao dark bar was flavored with freeze-dried raspberries, and a hint of vanilla from organic ground vanilla beans.

Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Raspberry Theme Week.
