Vegan Eats: Compassionate Chocolate

 Did you know that 75% of the world's cocoa comes from Ghana and the Ivory Coast, and that most of it relies on child slave-labor to produce?


Also non-vegan chocolate hinges on the maternal deprivation used in the dairy industry to save more milk for humans and no milk for the actual animal who needs it, a cow's calf.

Unacceptable times two!

The Food Empowerment Project has a nifty list of chocolate that is free from human and nonhuman suffering, except for people like me who buy a whole pack of vegan fudge and eat it in five minutes. BAD IDEA. I mean, great idea because vegan fudge from Allison's Gourmet is melty-cloud goodness on your tongue.
