Maya Gold Chocolate

Green and Black's Maya Gold Chocolate - organic and fair trade!!!

According to the Green & Black's website, "in 1994, while Jo and Craig were vacationing in Belize, they discovered how local cocoa farmers were being harmed by decreasing cocoa prices. They agreed to pay the farmers a fair price for their crops and created the flavor of Maya Gold®, which was inspired by the ancient Kukuh drink traditionally enjoyed by the Mayan farmers. This way of doing business didn't seem different to them - it just seemed right and came naturally – and in the process, the Maya Gold brand earned the UK's first Fairtrade mark."

Did it taste good (unlike the fairtrade chocolate I tried last year)? Hell yeah :)

I know what I'll be eating lots of now that 'normal' chocolate is off the menu!
