This Christmas season, you can have it all.
You can indulge in your favourite chocolate and other treats whilst supporting Fairtrade.
What does it mean for a product to be “Fairtrade”, exactly? The Fairtrade certification icon indicates that the product has been sourced sustainably, with attention paid to the ethical treatment of workers and responsible stewardship of the land.
Consider adding some of these Fairtrade-endorsed products to your trolley this season. Your taste buds, the ecosystem, and workers around the world will all appreciate it.
On Christmas Eve, every stocking needs to be stuffed with enough confections to last at least through the month of March. (It’s a new rule, haven’t you heard?!)
Of course, with the New Year quickly upon us, at least some of those sweets should be on the healthier side. After all, last year, 44% of us made a resolution to “eat healthier”, and it’s quite likely that many of us will return to the same resolution once more. So, keeping health in mind, we have the perfect Christmas treat: this piece of Divine Fairtrade 70% Dark Chocolate with Raspberries. With the powerful antioxidant power of dark chocolate on its side, this bar would be the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone on your list.
Speaking of healthy – this Vego Fairtrade Whole Hazelnut Chocolate Bar isn’t exactly wheatgrass with a splash of spirulina, but it’s composed of 20% hazelnuts, so your stocking recipient will fuel up at least a bit of protein to fuel up for the gift-unwrapping marathon.
Now, most of us have at least one person on our stocking list whom we would like to impress, amaze, or flatter. A package of these No.1 Champagne Truffles would do the trick quite nicely. The truffles are made with a desirable blend of milk and dark chocolate, and the twist of champagne in the ganache filling makes for a delightful kick to the senses.
Once the rush of adrenaline has receded from Christmas morning – later in the day after everyone’s opened their rounds of presents, a bit of sloth tends to enter the blood. You might discover the members of your family just lazing about beneath the ornaments, perhaps even napping directly atop discarded piles of wrapping paper. These Waitrose Chocolate Coated Raisins might be the perfect little nibbles to bring a spring back into your loved ones’ steps.
For a creamier treat beneath the tree – or for a romantic spooning session with your partner (or your spoon) beneath the mistletoe, you might prefer Ben & Jerry’s Minter Wonderland Ice Cream. This particular variety will leave your mouth winter-fresh and wanting more.
Or, if you’re feeling quite saturated with sweet treats, you might just want something a bit salty. These Liberation Fairtrade Salted Cashews & Peanuts will fill up your tum-tum until dinner.
Whether you’re sitting by the fireplace, or simply ogling a recording of a fireplace on YouTube, you might be struck with the desire to sip something hot and delicious. The Clipper Fairtrade Instant Hot Chocolate Drink is both speedy to prepare and quick to add that steaming burst of chocolatey cheer to your holiday.
For something a bit richer, you might consider the ASDA Extra Special Fairtrade Indulgent Drinking Chocolate. A cup of this would surely make the perfect cap for your busy celebration.
Of course, nothing beats the captivating scents of baked goods wafting out from the kitchen. If you’re in a do-it-yourself mood, consider the Menier Dark Chocolate Cookies Baking Mix. Santa will certainly appreciate your efforts.
You can also indulge with the Menier Dark Chocolate Fondant Baking Mix. What’s the finished product like? Not a cake, not a cookie, not a brownie – but something altogether delicious and unique. A bonus is that you can freeze a few slices for a treat to revisit on New Year’s.
