Dutch chocolate maker Tony’s Chocolonely, which makes 100 percent slave-free chocolate, is getting ready for Halloween with its new Halloween Tiny Tony’s. The seasonally decorated bag of 27 individually wrapped milk caramel sea salt chocolates looks to be a tasty and ethical goodie for trick or treaters.
“Halloween is such a fun moment for sharing chocolate, which is one of our favorite things to do. So, we picked our best-selling flavor (which just so happens to come in an orange wrapper) and made them bite-sized,” says Dena White, U.S. Marketing Manager.
Made in Belgium, the new Tiny Tony’s feature a balance of crunchy caramel, flakey sea salt, and smooth 32 percent milk chocolate. Like all Tony’s chocolate, they are ethically sourced and 100 percent traceable back to cocoa farms in Ghana and the Ivory Coast where they started their bean-to-bar journey.
“Isn’t it strange that we hand out chocolate to children that could be made by children? At Tony’s, we think it’s completely unacceptable that cocoa farmers are being exploited and not paid fairly for their cocoa. Extreme poverty is the root cause of illegal child labor and modern slavery on cocoa farms in West Africa. That needs to stop, says White. “When we say we’re ‘crazy about chocolate, serious about people’, we mean it. That’s why we’re launching Tiny Tony’s for Halloween. Now you can share treats that are made fairly with without forced labor while also sharing our story. That helps us move one step closer to a future where all chocolate worldwide is 100 percent slave free.”
The Halloween Tiny Tony’s will be available at New Seasons, Whole Foods, Stop and Shop, Natural Grocers, and many other stores nationwide for $8.49 per bag.
