Other than being a large, mainstream company, what is wrong with Hershey's?

thank you. i did not know that. Good things to know, although I haven't bought any of their stuff in ages, it will influence potential purchases.

I don't care his reasons. Sounds like a bunch of between the lines jargin. I don't trust big co's.... next we will see things like 'natural' flavors, vanillin and other crap to slide right in to the bars and be sold at walmart and target. Big co's have no integrity whatsoever.

Great, now what chocolates can I buy? equal exchange is still good right?

I'm pretty sure equal exchange is good, hopefully someone will know for sure.

Divine chocolate really is my favorite that I find in many stores. From their website
Quote:
Divine is the Fairtrade chocolate company co-owned by the cocoa farmers cooperative Kuapa Kokoo, who not only receive a fair price for their cocoa but also share in the company's profit.
It is available through United Foods (which supplies many food co-ops throughout the United States). It can also be ordered from their website.

What about Newman's Own? I love their milk chocolate bar but don't know much about the company itself.

The company is owned by Paul Newman ( I know him and his pilot and a variety of others around him.) He is an extremely charitable person and gives extensively to many groups. The company is committed to fair trade and organic with strict standards. In short, buy, buy, buy and don't feel bad in the least.

Oh, man, and I thought Hershey's was the "good" brand to buy- pretty much in the supermarket there's a choice between Nestle or Hershey cocoa powder.

Is Trader Joe's cocoa powder OK?
