Trader Joe's Fair Trade Swiss Milk Chocolate

Yesterday I discovered a new chocolate bar at Trader Joe’s: Fair Trade Swiss Milk Chocolate. It’s a good sized bar (3.5 oz) for only $1.99. Plus, it’s Fair Trade! According to the wrapper, “Fair Trade chocolate helps contribute to a better way of life for farmers and their families. This method of buying cocoa beans and sugar offers small-scale growers a fair price for their harvest.”

So how does it taste? Quite nice, actually! The chocolate is extremely smooth, and it has a hint of caramel, which adds to the overall aroma. The ingredients are pure and simple: “cane sugar, cocoa butter, whole milk powder, cocoa mass, carmelized sugar, soy lecithin, vanilla extract”. Definitely worth a try next time you’re at Trader Joe’s!

    I think I have seen that before many times. I go to Trader Joe’s a lot and see that chocolate. But it has never really got to my interest like a couple white chocolate Twix bars.

    1) i love these however i wish they didn’t wrap them in aluminum foil! Aluminum and food is not a healthy combo and i personally am allergic to it (break out around my mouth with canker sores). So i buy tons of their ridiculously delicious white chocolate bars instead. Too bad those aren’t organic and fair trade too! Can’t have everything I guess. Healthy (slightly) than the Twix ones that “greenbatter” mentioned.
