= Equal Exchange =

Let's talk about Equal Exchange ok? Ok!

I was grateful to work with Equal Exchange and sample a couple of their products and let you lovely people know my thoughts.

I was sent Equal Exchange unsweetened cocoa as well as a Panama Dark Chocolate Bar

Since I am by no means a chocolate connoisseur, my wonderful grandmother helped me review the chocolate bar!

2 thumbs up!

But the cocoa... now that I can work with! I used it in this recipe for healthy "Reese's Muffins"
And boy oh boy were they good! Tasted much closer to cake than a muffin... but it was stil healthy - so I'm not complaining!

So what is the Equal Exchange?
Let me educate you!

Equal Exchange is a fair trade retailer. Their mission is to build "Long-term trade partnerships taht are economically just and environmentally sound, to foster mutually beneficial relationships between farmers and consumers and to demonstrate, through our success, the contribution of worker co-operatives and Fair Trade to a more equitable, democratic and sustainable world." 

I know, I know.. that's a lot of stuff! But to break it down- they sell great products that benefit the consumer, producer and seller! 

It all started with the question "What if food could be traded in a way that is honest and far, a way that empowers both farmers and consumers?" 
Well I'm a farm girl - I like that! Even if you aren't connected to the producer... everyone can agree that a company that benefits each part of the 'trade' process associated with food is a good thing!

To sum up, let's look at a few of their most popular products to give you a feel for what they sell -

They have coffee, tea, chocolate, cocoa, snack bars, nuts, oils, syrups and LOADS of coffee equipment!

*Thank you Equal Exchange for the great products and business model! All opinions were solely my own, Equal Exchange only provided me with the samples-no compensation.
