Stop the Traffik: Toot-tootNovember 7, 2007 at 3:21 pm | Posted in events, other stuff | 7 Comments
So I didn’t mention this before because I felt a little weird tooting my own horn, but the white chocolate and almond tartufi I made won last month’s Stop the Traffik chocolate competition, hosted by Rachel from R khooks. I didn’t think I could be more excited when I heard the news a couple weeks ago, until today when I received my prize in the mail!
Rachel sent four bars of fairtrade chocolate and a beautiful card (maybe she even took the photo herself?)! I am holding both a milk and a dark bar from Monoprix Gourmet and mint (yay!) and almond bars from Alter Eco. I have never tried any of these, so I’m looking forward to getting down to business and doing some sampling.
Thanks so much, Rachel, for the chocolate bars and for hosting the event! I’m sure it’s helped to open a lot of eyes to the issue of forced labor in cocoa farming and chocolate production. And if you have a second, please check out Stop the Traffik’s site for more information on “Traffik Free” chocolate and where to find it.
