I get quite a few chocolate samples this time of year, and here's my new favorite: Alter Eco's Dark Chocolate Quinoa Midnight Crunch, a fair-trade, organic dark chocolate studded with crispy quinoa. It's fantastic! Like one of those old-fashioned crunch bars, but way, way better -- better tasting, better for the Earth, better for cacao farmers who receive equitable wages for their crops. This gluten-free quinoa chocolate bar is a brand-new product that's scheduled to hit shelves just before Valentine's Day, so keep an eye out for it. Alter Eco, a company O Magazine calls "visionary," also produces other flavors of fair-trade and organic chocolate bars, as well as fair-trade and organic olive oil (that's also carbon neutral!), sugar, packaged quinoa, and rice.
