You Had Me at Godiva...


But then... EXTRA DARK! Be still my heart! I'm always in the market for anything darker than 79% cacoa. But THEN....... CACOA from the Santo Domingo??? Stop playing Godiva! Just stop. When was DR making chocolate?

Fast forward 2 weekends. I was pursuing the isles of Whole Foods when..... BAM!

ANOTHER brand of chocolate from the Dominican Republic!

And while I'm on a tangent... a few years back, my friend Becky turned me on to this specific brand of dark chocolate that was sourced well in South America. 

The workers were paid fairly and a percentage of the profits when back into the community. I wanted to support the company, but each Whole Foods/Trader Joes or co-op I visited did not supply it.  But... guess what just showed up at my nearest work Whole Foods!

Oh, and in case it wasn't clear... Kallari was the brand that Becky was talking about :)
