Fair Trade Halloween Chocolate
This is the first year I will able to give out Halloween candy to children. In the past, I have lived in neighborhoods, like the Haight in San Francisco, where either very LARGE "children" came to my door asking for treats, or in neighborhoods where it wasn't safe to open the door. Now we live on the idyllic Oakland/Piedmont border in a house with a white picket fence (I am not kidding) and I am a gearing up for the kiddies to come knocking at the door in their little Harry Potter, Batman and Lindsay Lohan outfits.
I am hoping to shoot over to the Global Exchange Store on College Ave. in Berkeley to buy some of their Fair Trade chocolate coin candy. If you don't live in the Bay Area, you still have time to order it online by going to Global Exchange's Fair Trade Online Store.
