“Do the right thing, and the right thing will come back to you.”

I’m reminded of these words of wisdom as I start this post, because Nibmor Chocolate (short for “nibble more”) is a delicious example of a business that has found success through ethics.

Nibmor Chocolate is fair trade certified, so farmers are paid a fair wage for the cacao that they grow, and there’s no child slave labor in the supply chain as with most large commercial brands. Nibmor Chocolate is Rainforest Alliance certified, so the environment is not harmed. Nibmor Chocolate is certified organic and GMO-free, so chocolate eaters are not fed pesticides or genetically modified industrial food substitutes.

And, Nibmor Chocolate is priced accessibly, at 65 cents per “daily dose” square.

That’s accessible ethics!

I made delicious vegan drinking chocolate with Nibmor and water. Nibmor founder Heather Terry recommends coconut milk too.

And, Nibmor Chocolate is delicious. Let’s face it: flavor is king. Ethics and accessibility don’t necessarily guarantee success. Deliciousness guarantees smiles.

Particularly enjoyed the surprisingly mild Nibmor 80% with sea salt and nibs.
