Halloween is just three weeks away and with supermarket store shelves stocked with sugary delights, this fact is hard to ignore. It’s also hard to ignore the ingredient lists of candy classics, chock full of high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, artificial preservatives and more. 

Alter Eco Dark Chocolate Quinoa Bar

I love that Whole Foods Market offers other options for trick-or-treaters and Halloween revelers, or straight-up chocolate lovers, like the delicious Alter Eco Organic Dark Chocolate Quinoa Bar opens in a new tab.  This six-ingredient wonder (Cacao beans, raw cane sugar, cocoa butter, quinoa-rice crisps (quinoa, rice and sugar), vanilla beans) offers an update to a childhood favorite.  It’s got a satisfying crispy crunch and is Fair Trade certified and organic to boot. From the Royal Quinoa harvested in the Bolivian Andes to the Amazon-grown and Swiss-made dark chocolate to the unrefined Mascobado cane sugar from the Philippines, every ingredient in this simply delicious chocolate bar is chosen with care and concern for the environment and the communities producing these products.  Alter Eco is committed to the small farmers and their families who grow their products, and as such have developed an extensive auditing process for all of their growers to ensure fair wages, good working conditions and hours, and opportunities for economic growth and development. (You can read more about the Alter Eco story opens in a new tab in this blog post from last May.)
