"Bittersweet" Fair Trade Easter Chocolate Sale

I was sad to learn yesterday that Ithaca Chocolates, whose unique "Art Bars" combined support of artists and Fair Trade producers, is closing after seven years. I first learned of the company when co-founder Erika helped support World Fair Trade Day during my time at FTRN. I found her to be a generous collaborator, and I was impressed by her desire to combine her art expertise with concern for people and the planet.

As they say, the Fair Trade world's loss is your gain. The company has only 3.5 oz Dark with Cocoa Nibs bars left, and as a final goodbye, they've put them on sale for 25% off . Treat yourself--or
get your Easter, Spring, Mother's Day or Graduation presents for only $4.65/bar (normally $6.20/bar). The sell-by date is July 31, so you can keep the stash for awhile.

Best of luck to Erika and her family as they chart next steps.
