Happy National Chocolate Day! Oh, chocolate. How I love thee. Let me count the pieces. The 26 unequally divided pieces of Tony’s Chocolonely chocolate bars.
Hey- Portland! Have you met Tony’s Chocolate? Their bright colored, very tasty chocolate bars have traveled from Amsterdam to Portland’s markets and New Seasons. And, yes, they are promoting chocolate but their real story lies in making the entire chocolate industry slave free. The story on their site reads, “Right now, slaves are working on cocoa farms in West Africa. Many of them are children. Tony’s Chocolonely exists to change that. Our vision is 100% slave free chocolate. Not just our chocolate, but all chocolate worldwide.” To read the entire story, check out their website.
If you click on the “our chocolate” tabs you’ll find information on all eight chocolate bar flavors and locations where you can find these beautiful bars. I have tried the Milk Chocolate, Dark Almond Sea Salt and Dark Pecan Coconut and my husband both agreed that they are delicious. Pair the chocolates with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and you’ll be in heaven, a chocolate heaven with zero slave workers. What’s better than that?
I was lucky enough to receive each flavor. I am working my way through the chocolate bars. Tony’s Chocolonely is big on sharing- so if you are near my home, you are always welcomed to have a cup of coffee (before 4:00 PM) or a glass of wine (after 4:00 PM) and I will unwrap the gold foil and share these beautiful chocolate bars with you. In the meantime, I hope you enjoyed the photos, I hope you celebrate National Chocolate Day and I hope you buy a chocolate bar and share the sweetness and the story with a friend.
