Does your Sweetheart love chocolate? Mine sure does! I always try to get him an assortment of chocolates for Valentine’s Day. I found some wonderful chocolates I want to tell you about. They are called Tony’s Chocolonely Bars. They are so good. I am going to try to describe them here to you so you can try them.
The chocolate is dark and dense and so delicious. I was overwhelmed with how chocolatey they tasted. They are huge bars! My sweety is holding one here. The chocolate is shaped in sections that are uneven which makes them interesting. The bars are 6 ounces of yummy taste. They come in seven flavors.

- Milk Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt (32 percent cocoa)
- Dark Chocolate (70 percent cocoa)
- Dark Chocolate Almond Sea Salt (51 percent cocoa)
- Dark Chocolate Coffee Crunch (51 percent cocoa)

Tony’s Chocolonely is 100 percent slave free. It is very popular and comes from Amsterdam. It is now available in the US. From their website: “Almost 11 years ago the Dutch investigative reporter Teun (Tony) van de Keuken launched an investigation about the use of slavery within the cocoa industry on his consumer report show Keuringsdienst van Waarde. He was literally shocked to discover that most of the chocolate on supermarket shelves was harvested by slaves—worse, by child slaves. He decided to do something about it. He first approached some of the world’s largest chocolate makers, but they completely ignored him. So he decided to roll up his sleeves and do it himself. He ate a couple of chocolate bars and then turned himself in to the authorities as a chocolate criminal. By eating chocolate, he was complicit in slavery. But the public prosecutor wouldn’t prosecute him. Teun didn’t give up and went looking for witnesses; victims of chocolate consumption. He found 4 boys who had worked as slaves on a cocoa farm in Ivory Coast. They provided evidence against Teun and the 2,136 other chocolate consumers who in the meantime had joined Teun in his stride. On November 29th 2005, still awaiting the judge’s decision, Teun decided to lead by example and make 5,000 Fairtrade chocolate bars. Tony’s Chocolonely was born.” Try them and let me know what you think!
