Fair Trade Month!

October is Fair Trade Month and I'm happy to be reviewing a ton of socially responsible products. Katie from Fair Trade USA went out her way to send me some of the best Fair Trade products that are also Vegan. For those of you who aren't familiar with concept of Fair Trade, it's basically a movement to alleviate poverty in developing nations, while ensuring consumers quality products that improve lives and protect the environment. So when you see a product with the Fair Trade Logo, you can be assured that the product is a good one!  

Kopali Organic Chocolate Covered Banana. These are nom city! I ate the whole package right away. Well, after I took the picture anyway. They are little banana bits, which are easier to eat when compare to large banana slices. They taste wonderful and I hope to see them in the store soon!

Alter Ego Dark Quinoa Dark Chocolate. Who knew? Quinoa and chocolate are AMAZING! The quinoa gives the chocolate the perfect crispness. Sort of like a Crunch bar, but totally Fair Trade chocolate. Buy it ASAP.

Madhava Organic Raw Agave Nectar. Agave is a great sweetener that is usually on the counter at my house. I personally don't use it, but my coffee/tea drinking girlfriend swears by it.   

Sweet Riot Chocolate Kickin' Coconut Bar. Another amazing Organic chocolate bar, but this time it's got coconut! Oodles of sweet delicious coconut covered in dark chocolate. Another ASAP buy! 

Rishi Organic Pu-Ern Ginger Tea. A spicy, potent, gingery tea. Great for Sunday morning breakfast!

Honest Tea Black Forest Tea. A delightfully berry tinged non-caffeinated iced tea. Great when you don't want anything overpowering sweet.

And if that wasn't enough, Coconut Bliss was kind enough to include a free coupon for giveaway! (**Updated 10/16** Fair Trade USA will also send you an above product of your choice plus a Fair Trade Tote Bag!) All you have to do is comment down below which of these products you are most excited to try. I will randomly pick a winner, Wednesday at 4pm CST. Also, look for a Vegan MoFo Fair Trade giveaway soon! Thank you to Fair Trade USA for promoting these wonderful products. Remember to look for the Fair Trade label!

  5. Way to promote fair trade products! I feel like I don't often have the funds to buy fair trade but I really should more often.

    As for favorites, I cannot decide between the Ginger Tea and the Sweet Riot Kickin' Coconut chocolate bar. Cannot and will not.

  6. Oh, I can't wait to try the quinoa chocolate bar! I think I've seen it in the store here, but for some reason it didn't occur to me that it would be crunchy. I've made homemade raw crunch bars with dehydrated buckwheat groats, but that was kind of a giant pain, as you might imagine...

  7. Thanks for the review of the products. I have seen that quinoa bar and have wanted to try it. What a novel idea to put quinoa in chocolate. I also love coconut ice cream and would be excited to get that coupon!! :-)

  25. I am totally wanting to try the chocolate bar made with quinoa! What a great idea. There are times that I crave chocolate and would love to satisfy my craving with a chocolate bar that is not as fattening. It would also save me having to dip my spoon into the jar of cooking cocoa! :D
