It's Got Vegan In It

Hello, Friends!

Halloween is just around the corner, which got me thinking about chocolate. Actually, that’s a lie. It doesn’t take a holiday to get me thinking about chocolate, tee hee.

I promised at this blog’s inception that there would be lots of chocolate talk. I am still formulating the topics I would like to blog about concerning chocolate. And by the way, if you have questions or want to suggest anything, be sure to leave a comment! However, before I begin doing any kind of extensive blogging on the topic, I want to start at the very beginning. And as one of my idols, Julie Andrews, said, that’s a very good place to start!

At the risk of repeating myself, I love love love love chocolate. I love eating it, sipping it, smelling it, seeing it, and if I could have every one of my toiletries be chocolate-scented, well…

    I am so glad to see my favourite, Camino (La Siembra – Cocoa Camino) on the good list! Very enlightening post, thank you for sharing!

    • Thank you so much for reading this post Sophia! I was shocked when I read it – it’s something everyone should be aware of. Anyway, I’ve never had Camino chocolate, but I’ll have to check it out. I also want to thank you for all the lovely comments you leave on my blog – I always appreciate hearing from you! I hope you’re having a wonderful week. Celeste 🙂

        I was definitely shocked when I read it. I always bought Camino because it is fair trade and organic, but I had no idea about the dirty secret behind chocolate.

        It’s my pleasure – I love your blog and your awesome posts! 🙂

    Thanks for ‘introducing’ me to another vegan chocolate aficionado, Celeste! And a fair trade one at that. 🙂
    I hope you are well.

    I like Divine Chocolates which are fair trade and helps farmers be self sufficient.

    • That’s great Mom! You’ve been buying chocolate on the “good” list for a long time now. You and dad are really conscious about fair trade, which is wonderful. I hope you guys have a great weekend! Celeste 🙂

    Fair trade chocolates. The only way to go. I choose a chocolate (and coffee, and other imports) for my pantry that fits ethical concerns for ALL animals, not just farmed variety, but “free” people and animals as well.
