The four flavors I got to review were:
**38% Milk Chocolate with Sea Salt and Toffee
**Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle
**Dark Chocolate Hazelnut with Cranberries
**Milk Chocolate with Spiced Cookies
I have to tell you that the Milk Chocolate with Sea Salt and Toffee was my absolute favorite! I am just crazy about Toffee and this bar was awesome! I also found out this interesting fact:
Suitable for vegetarians. Free from artificial flavorings, colorings and preservatives.
And then look at the ingrediants. They are all Fair Trade so that you know they are made from the finest ingrediants!
Fairtrade sugar, Fairtrade cocoa butter, skimmed milk powder, Fairtrade cocoa mass, toffee 10% (sugar, glucose syrup, butterfat, salt), butterfat, sea salt, emulsifier: soya lecithin (non GM), Fairtrade vanilla.My next favorite was the Milk Chocolate with Spiced Cookies! Gosh this was sure was good! And I really thought it would be my least favorite. But, it turned out to be alot better than it sounded! And again, it was made with all Fair Trade ingrediants:
Fairtrade sugar, Fairtrade cocoa butter, Dried cream, Fairtrade cocoa mass, Spiced Cookies, Whole milk powder, Emulsifier: soya lecithin (non GM), Fairtrade vanilla.I then had the Dark Chocolate with Hazelnut Truffle and it was very good also and I just couldn't stop at one or two pieces of the little squares that they have the chocolate sectioned off once you unwrap the foil, you will see what I mean.
It is one big bar but it is possible to break it or cut it into small squares by following the pattern. If you are a dark chocolate lover and of truffles, like me, this will be one of your top favorites!
Fairtrade sugar, Fairtrade cocoa mass, hazelnut paste, Fairtrade cocoa butter, Fairtrade vanilla.Then lastly, I tried the Dark Chocolate with Hazelnuts & Cranberries, but not because of the chocolate or hazelnut as I love them dearly, but cranberries in chocolate just doesn't sound too good. But, boy! Was I wrong. It tasted fantastic! They are not huge pieces of cranberries, so it blended right in and if they hadn't told me on the package, I would have never guessed what those were!
Fairtrade cocoa mass, Fairtrade sugar, dried and sweetened chopped cranberries (cranberries, sugar, sunflower oil), Fairtrade cocoa butter, chopped hazelnuts, butterfat, emulsifier: soya lecithin (non GM), Fairtrade vanilla.
These are Milk Chocolate Trees and there is nothing else in them, but still, Milk Chocolate looks good no matter what shape or form to me. You can also get these in the Dark Chocolate, too! I mostly showed you all Christmas chocolates but they do have chocolate for other occassions as well.
I grabbed this from the About Us but there was so much there to read, I couldn't copy it all because it would have taken up 2 whole pages, so go by and read this really fascinating story and how it really got started. Here is just a sampling:
Choosing Divine as your chocolate treat is a delicious way of playing your part in a more equitable trading partnership. Divine is the only Fairtrade chocolate company which is 45% owned by the farmers.
While Fairtrade ensures farmers receive a better deal for their cocoa and additional income to invest in their community, company ownership gives farmers a share of Divine’s profits and a stronger voice in the cocoa industry. That’s good business!You definitely will love the fact that all of this process is carefully carried out with loving hands from them to you and I can only say that the bars were AWESOME and if you haven't tried them yet, now would be a great time! Oh, and now they have baking chocolates!
