Golden ticket: Kallari’s sustainable, single-source chocolate

I’m always looking for the go ahead to eat chocolate (like dark chocolate can be healthy), which is why Kallari’s do good/taste good approach to cacao offers a real feel-good indulgence. All profits from the USDA and Rainforest Alliance certified chocolate (available in 70, 75, and 85 percent-content cacao bars) go to the Ecuadorian Amazon’s Kallari farmers’ cooperative. While chocolate often blends beans from various regions, Kallari's chocolate is single origin. Every time you buy a bar, comprised primarily of rare Cacao Nacional beans, you’re supporting education, healthcare, and sustainable-development for the 850 Kichwa families that harvest the beans. I must admit I was nearly sold even before unwrapping my first bar. Then all it took was one smooth, rich bite, accented with subtle fruity notes, and I had my latest excuse for chocolate.
