Theo Chocolate

Saturday night was so yummy!

Are we the only couple in the world that goes to a certain chain seafood restaurant and doesn’t order any seafood?

That’s what we did. I ordered my favorite (and oh-so-bad-for-me) Cajun chicken alfredo, ate more than my fair share of cheesy biscuits, and had a not-so-lava chocolate chip lava sundae. Even though it was broken – it was still pretty darn amazing!

Thank goodness I have some control when it comes to portions or I could easily weigh about 300 pounds…I love food waaaaayyyy too much! :)

It could have been pretty embarrassing to have to be rolled out of the restaurant too. Could you imagine seeing that happen to someone? I don’t know about you, but I can guarantee that I would have to laugh. Wrong – absolutely, but come on…you know it would be pretty funny.

Okay so let’s talk about chocolate – again. I may have mentioned once or even twice now that I LOVE chocolate. Or maybe I haven’t, but I do - too much!

So this place has definitely caught my attention – Theo Chocolate.

Here are just a few of the reasons that makes Theo a great company:

“Using only pure ingredients that are grown sustainably. We source our ingredients locally whenever possible.

Partnering with our growers by ensuring they earn a living wage and have access to education for their families.

Honoring and respecting our employees and suppliers. This is possible due to the unique fact that we control every step of our own manufacturing process.

Using green energy sources to power our factory.

Using sustainable packaging and printing methods.

Educating about social and environmental accountability 7 days a week through public tours of our artisan factory.”

There are so many different varieties of chocolate on their site – you MUST check it out. I personally HAVE TO HAVE the Caramel Apple Cider Caramels.

There are also the cherry & almond chocolate bars, the salted almond chocolate bars, the bread & chocolate bars (interesting…), and the pink salted caramels just to name a few more!

The next time you are craving some great chocolate – buy some Theo Chocolate. You will be doing something good for yourself and someone else.

Some more information about Theo Chocolate’s views:

“PEOPLE: The meaning of Fair Trade
Our founding principle is that the finest artisan chocolate in the world can (and should) be produced in an entirely ethical, sustainable fashion. We believe that every gold medal we win is a testament to both our commitment to excellence and to the people and families who grow and harvest our cacao. The social benefits of Fair Trade are far reaching. The child who gets adequate nutrition and access to healthcare and education today also gains access to a world of opportunities. Fair Trade enables farmers to take their livelihoods to the next level in sophistication, blending the benefits of modern techniques with artisanal practices, while participating in greater social change through the democratic Fair Trade cooperative organization.

PLANET: The meaning of Organic
Focus on sustainable growing practices benefits both our fragile environmental ecosystem and all of the people inhabiting our planet. Integrated pest management protects farmers and the environment from damaging pesticides. Shade grown cacao allows for biodiversity and much needed forest habitat for many species such as migratory birds. Reforestation helps offset worldwide air pollution and has a positive impact on global warming.”
