Of course you know it is that time of the year...
falling leaves, crisp air, Halloween...

Did you know Halloween is the biggest holiday for chocolate sales in the U.S.?
Did you also know most mainstream chocolate comes from field where child labor has been documented? 

But this Halloween you can indulge and show the world that
"Halloween shouldn't have to be scary" with Equal Exchange chocolates.

Equal Exchange has been a pioneer and U.S. market leader in Fair Trade since 1986 and is a full service provider of organic coffee, tea, chocolate, cocoa, olive oil and other products. 100% of Equal Exchange products are fairly traded, benefiting more than 40 small farmer co-operatives in 25 countries and around the world. 
Equal Exchange chocolate is sourced directly form the small farmer coops. These are the perfect chocolates for those of us (Me! me!)  looking for a traditional candy bar flavor, but with high quality organic chocolate and you can feel good about eating them because they are Fair Trade!

I recently had the opportunity to try Equal Exchange chocolate. My family and I had a little taste test of the Peanut Butter, Crisp and Dark Chocolate with Fruit candy bars. Oh yeah...we loved them. My favorite (much to my surprise because I have always been a crisp girl was the dark chocolate with fruit.

After sampling them on their own, we decide to many some fancy s'mores. Now, that could be slightly addictive! YUM!

Along with our chocolate bars, we also got a delicious box of fair trade chocolate minis. They have just a touch of hazelnut and I just may be popping these into my mouth like nobody's business (now that is dangerous!)

So, bring a little "fair trade fright" into your Halloween and support the small farmers in co-ops in Peru and Paraguay who produce the  organic and fairly traded ingredients by purchasing Equal Exchange chocolates

Hop on over the the Equal Exchange Facebook page (and give it a "Like") play the Cacao Game for a chance to win some candy bars. You will watch a farmer guide you through the harvesting of a cacao bean and even get a code to get 30% off a purchase! 

You can also win some chocolate right here...right now!
