Do you need to order something special for the love in your life? Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Look no further than Equal Exchange.

Here are a few of the lovely items that they offer:

Equal Exchange Organic Chocolate & Coffee Pairing Gift Bag. This kit includes a variety of organic coffee and chocolates and packaged in a 100% Recycled Printed Gift Bag. This gift is perfect for a chocolate or coffee
lover and very economical at $34.95 each.

Also, share the love with Equal Exchange’s fairly traded (Vegan and gluten-free) Organic Dark Chocolate Minis (55% cacao content). These deliciously rich, bite-sized chocolates are crafted using the best quality organic cacao (cocoa beans) from small-scale farmer co-operatives in the Dominican Republic and Peru. Swiss-made with only the purest ingredients, and soy- and gluten-free! Despite their small size, these minis have big impact. By choosing Equal Exchange fairly traded chocolate, you help provide small-scale farmers the resources and opportunities they need to build a better future for their families and communities. Price is $5.49 each.

If your mouth isn't watering yet, check out this amazing Chocolate Fondue recipe.

Fair Trade Chocolate Fondue
Nothing says romance like a red, ripe strawberry dipped in melted chocolate. Try our Fair Trade Chocolate Fondue as a perfect complement to your romantic Valentine’s Day dinner. It’s simple to make, and oh-so-fun to eat.

1/2 Cup of organic heavy cream + 1/4 cup for adding to pot as needed
4 Equal Exchange Organic and Fair Trade Dark Chocolate bars - any variety
1/4 Cup of Equal Exchange Fair Trade Almonds, chopped (optional)
Dippables: You can dip almost anything in chocolate and it tastes good, but here are some more traditional options.
Strawberries (Stemmed)
Equal Exchange Fair Trade Bananas (sliced just before serving)
Navel oranges (sectioned)
Ripe and diced pineapples
Salted pretzel sticks
Dried apricots
Apple slices
Pound cake (cubed)
And anything else sweet that will hold together when dipped into chocolate!


Prepare your dippables by chopping them into bite-sized cubes (except bananas). Place in refrigerator. Heat 1/2 cup of cream over medium heat in a non-reactive pot until it comes to a light boil. Remove from heat and add in chopped Equal Exchange chocolate bars. Allow them to melt for 3 or 4 minutes and then whisk chocolate and cream mixture together. Add chopped almond and stir (optional). Transfer melted chocolate to a fondue pot and serve. If mixture starts to become more solid you can add additional cream, 1 tablespoon at a time to bring it to your desired consistency.

*I received some lovely chocolates and coffees in exchange for this post. I was under no obligation to post this positive review. I just fell in love with their chocolates and thought that I would share this info with you**
