We love chocolate here at Delicious Living, but that’s not just because it tastes so sweet (or bittersweet) or because it’s loaded with antioxidants that may help boost brain and heart health. Many of our favorite companies are also dedicated to producing organic and fair trade chocolates, giving you all the more reason to indulge in one of these editors’ top picks.
Alter Eco’s Dark Quinoa Chocolate Midnight Crunch
Studded with crispy quinoa, this bar is reminiscent of one of those old-fashioned crunch bars, but way, way better — better tasting, better for the Earth, better for cacao farmers who receive equitable wages for their crops.
Shaman Dark Chocolate with Green Tea & Ginger
We love that proceeds from Shaman chocolates support the indigenous Huichol Indians and that the company offers combinations like green tea and ginger, milk chocolate with macadamia nuts and Hawaiian pink sea salt, and dark chocolate with ruby raspberries.
Chocolove Organic Dark Chocolate Bar
Made from organic Caribbean cocoa trees, Chocolove offers two varieties of organic bars (Organic Dark Chocolate Bar 73 percent cocoa and Organic Dark Chocolate Bar 61 percent cocoa) in addition to its tasty classic collection, including our latest favorite—almond and sea salt. Plus, you can customize your bar with a love letter for your sweetie.
Green & Black’s Organic White Chocolate
Looking to lighten things up? Try Green & Black’s white chocolate bar made with cocoa butter and a blend of milk and Bourbon vanilla. The company also launched a new variety made with caramelized organic peanuts.
Theo 91% Costa Rica Dark Origin Bar
This ultra-dark bar will impress even the most sever chocoholics with the complexities of cocoa. Equally delicious and socially conscious, the company’s other bars come from Ghana (84 percent) and Madagascar (74 percent).
