    As much as I enjoy chocolate, there is a dark side to this scrumptious treat. As in many products offered in the marketplace today, there is child slave labor used in the cocoa industry. A 2013/2014 Tulane University study showed that 2.3 million children were working in hazardous conditions in cocoa production in Ghana and the Ivory Coast, where some of the worst forms of child labor can be found. In addition, as of 2015, of the estimated 2.3 million children working on these cocoa plantations, approximately 90 percent are working as slaves. These children are usually boys (ages 6-16 years old) who are sold by slave traders to the cocoa farmers.

    The 3 biggest chocolate producers in the US (Nestle, Hersey and Mars) all knowingly purchase their cocoa from plantations that use child slave labor. I refuse to purchase my chocolate from these companies. I now make an effort to know about the ethical practices of the chocolate companies I buy from. I have downloaded an app from the Food Empowerment Project that shows which companies produce ethical chocolate. I have referenced it many times in working on my goal of trying 43 different chocolates!

    I tried Lindt's Strawberry. I usualy don't like Strawberry flavoured things, I think it tastes like medecine (the ones se had as kids). But I was impressed with this chocolate, it had nothing to do with medecine, it has a sour crunch like the real fruit.
