Did you know that Saturday April 5th is National Caramel Day?
Neither did I, until I received an email regarding – what else – Caramel, from the fine folks at Theo + Jacobsen Salt Co.
Theo Chocolate has salty, sweet and full-bodied caramel treats to snack on and they ship throughout the US and their treats are available here in Canada at fine retailers such as Whole Foods.
As the first Organic, IMO Fair Trade Fair for Life and NON-GMO certified bean-to-bar chocolate maker in North America, Theo Chocolate make great chocolate and make our world a better place.
Based in Seattle, with a whole lot of social responsibility, these chocolates are delicious and responsible and I know that because I’ve eaten them before (nothing has been provided to me in compensation for writing this post) and I am just learning of the different way they make their chocolates – not at the expense of anyone else.
In their words; “From the cacao farmer in the Congo, to the truck driver in Seattle, to the chocolate lover in Philadelphia—there is a thread that runs through us all. Theo believes in celebrating those connections, in strengthening them and in finding inspiration within them—inspiration to change the world. We know that every action has a result. That the choices we make here in Seattle, Washington touch lives across the planet in real and lasting ways. That knowledge, and that responsibility, is what drives us to do things differently, to help make the world a better place. We think about every choice we make, every action we take and how it will impact our interconnected world.”
Next time I am in Seattle, I am taking The Urban Daddy family on a Factory Tour!

I say Car-a-mel. What do you say?
