Guiltless chocolate for a Monday afternoon

[caption id="attachment_1277" align="alignleft" width="96" caption="I'll take two please!"] I'll take two please![/caption] You know what the best afternoon pick-me-up is? That's right, chocolate. And do you know what's even better than plain old chocolate? Yes, fair trade chocolate. Last week, Cadbury announced that its Fair Trade Certified Cadbury Dairy Milk delicious chocolate bars are finally available in Canada. When a product is fair trade certified it means that the farmers or artisans who help make the product are paid a fair wage, allowed to join unions and provided good housing. The term also guarantees that no child or forced labour was used. I'm happy that I can now guiltlessly add Cadbury Dairy Milk to my rotation of, um, nutritious snacks. The kind folks at Cadbury sent me three fair trade chocolate bars. It's the perfect snack for a overcast Monday afternoon. And you know what? I'm not going to share them. I would with you, though, if you were here. But your not and that's too bad ... for you. What's your favourite fair trade product? Mine's chocolate. Could you tell?
