Theo Chocolate


Theo Chocolate





Theo Chocolate is currently my favorite chocolate.  The orange-infused bars have kicked our backyard s’mores up a notch, and they have a really yummy-looking holiday line that I’m excited to try out.  All for research, of course. I will do this difficult job of mass-chocolate tasting for you, dear reader, because I love you so very much.  I discovered this chocolate at Kroger, in the natural foods section, but I’m going to buy a larger selection from Theo’s website.  They have nibs and recipes available online, as well as gift boxes for the chocolate-lovers on your Christmas list.  My kids will get Theo bars in their stockings this year.  Don’t tell them.  I’m not sure yet if I’m giving the bearded ho-ho-hoer the credit.

Why I Like This:

Theo describes itself as “the only Organic, Fair Trade, Fair for Life certified Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Factory in North America.”  You can go to the website and learn allllll about how and where they source their beans, with maps and lots and lots of details, as well as a ton of information about the health benefits of chocolate (and of course, I’m always looking for more excuses to eat chocolate).  This chocolate IS more expensive than the chocolate I used to buy.  But.  I’d rather eat less chocolate, making it more special and SAVORable, rather than eat my face off with cocoa beans picked by little child slaves.  When I break out a Theo bar, we all get excited and let its deliciousness melt over our tongues.  I actually ate a little piece of Halloween chocolate candy the other day, and now that my tastebuds have been set free by Theo chocolates, the old stuff didn’t even taste good.

Slave-Free Christmas Challenge:

This Christmas, I’ve challenged myself to shop my entire Christmas list from organizations that are helping people, not hurting people.  Today, 27 million men, women, and children live as someone else’s property.  Slaves are making the items that I’m buying to celebrate the birth of my Lord and Savior.  Somehow I don’t think He’s blessed by the blood on His birthday presents.  For more information on my Slave-Free Christmas project, click here.
