I was recently googling “chocolate” and “slave” (don’t ask) only to discover that now we have to make sure our chocolate and cocoa don’t come from slave* cultivated cocoa. Just in time for Halloween too. :mad:
*in the sense of abusive child labor from minors, whose parents often sold their labor and/or custody of them.
Oh. Was that a joke? White chocolate doesn’t have cocoa so it’s not really chocolate and therefore isn’t involved with this. That’s what I thought you meant. I didn’t realize that you were trying to make a joke.
Sure there is. You buy fair trade goods. If enough people buy fair trade then companies will have to cater to their consumer’s wishes. Fair trade is a growing market here (or it was till the credit crunch struck), so saying there’s nothing you can do is just plain wrong.
I can’t eat chocolate because it gives me a migraine. But I think I can eat white chocolate without a problem. I thought it was the lack of cocoa that made the difference and maybe I was indeed eating the inferior stuff. But I think there may be another compound in dark chocolate that makes the difference as well.
This I like.
To the OP: I try not to be a spelling nazi, but that spelling in the title is grating like nails on a chalkboard. Too late to change it now, but please consider spell check next time. Thanks.
Oh, and as to the OP, I do my part in cutting down on chocolate consumption because I can’t eat it anyway, so yay, one less thing to feel guilty about.
