Divine Chocolate Review and Giveaway...

We recently had the chance to review a few bars of chocolate from Divine Chocolate.


About Divine Chocolate:
"The story starts in 1879 when Tetteh Quarshie first brought cocoa to Ghana from Equatorial Guinea. Since then, Ghanaian cocoa has developed a global reputation for its quality and its taste. Most of the cocoa is grown by small-scale family farmers on 4-5 acres of land. Cocoa farming is a precarious business.
Kuapa Kokoo - which means good cocoa growers - has a mission to empower farmers in their efforts to gain a dignified livelihood, to increase women's participation in all of Kuapa's activities, and to develop environmentally friendly cultivation of cocoa.
Kuapa Kokoo quickly developed a reputation for being fair and honest. In 1997, at their annual general meeting, the farmers of Kuapa Kokoo voted to set up a chocolate company of their own in order to return even more benefits to cocoa farmers. And with investment from The Body Shop and Twin Trading, and support from Comic Relief and Christian Aid, Divine Chocolate was born.

Divine Chocolate is today a leading Fair Trade brand in the UK and a pioneer in the world of socially responsible enterprise. The success of Divine means that farmers have a secure source of Fair Trade income that continues to grow year on year. Kuapa Kokoo has invested its Fair Trade income in building schools, sinking wells for clean drinking water to villages, providing mobile medical clinics for farmers in remote growing regions, and fostering women’s income generation projects to help women earn additional income for their families when the cocoa season is over. In 2006, Divine Chocolate Inc opened in Washington DC to bring fantastic Fair Trade chocolate to US consumers. The farmers of Kuapa Kokoo own one-third of Divine Chocolate in the US."


What we thought: This chocolate definitely lives up to its name! It is divine!! The two varieties we tried were the milk chocolate toffee crunch and the 70% dark. The toffee crunch was full of crunchy pieces of toffee mixed with smooth creamy milk chocolate. The 70% dark was a real treat and I savored each and every chunk:) It was rich and dark and blissfully decadent! Mmmm...Divine Chocolate is pretty great! The fact that is is fair trade chocolate makes it even better:) If you are looking for some quality chocolate bars, you should check pout Divine Chocolate!!
