Many of them are children. Tony’s Chocolonely exists to change that.
Our vision is 100% slave free chocolate.
Not just our chocolate, but all chocolate worldwide.
With incredibly tasty chocolate we lead by example and show the world chocolate can be made differently: in taste, packaging and the way we treat cocoa farmers.
Alone we make slave free chocolate, together we make all chocolate 100% slave free. So we ask you to join in. The more people choose slave free and share our story, the sooner 100% slave free becomes the norm in chocolate.
The choice is yours. Are you in?
So he decided to roll up his sleeves and do it himself. He ate a couple of chocolate bars and then turned himself in to the authorities as a chocolate criminal. By eating chocolate, he was complicit in slavery. But the public prosecutor wouldn’t prosecute him. Teun didn’t give up and went looking for witnesses; victims of chocolate consumption. He found 4 boys who had worked as slaves on a cocoa farm in Ivory Coast. They provided evidence against Teun and the 2,136 other chocolate consumers who in the meantime had joined Teun in his stride. On November 29th 2005, still awaiting the judge’s decision, Teun decided to lead by example and make 5,000 Fairtrade chocolate bars. Tony’s Chocolonely was born.
I have eaten a ton of chocolate in my life and my eyes have been completely closed to the facts. I had never considered where my chocolate came from or who was behind the creation of it. Now that I have discovered Tony's Chocolonely I have my eyes wide open to what I had been supporting in the past. Now that I am aware of the fact that big companies are keeping children enslaved and away from their families I can't go back to feeding that beast by purchasing those products.
Tony's Chocolonely has seven incredibly delicious kinds of chocolate bars.
My personal favorite is the Dark Coffee Crunch. It has a deep rich chocolate flavor with crunchy bits of coffee. It is pure heaven, the perfect blend. It is not too weak and at the same time it's not overwhelming. I also love the size of the tiny bits of coffee. They are not huge bitter chunks like some other brands I have had. They are delicate, crispy, crunchy, tiny little pieces and add a beautiful splash of coffee flavor.
