Kosher Organic Chocolate = Love

Valentines Day is coming up this Thursday – and while it’s not a Jewish holiday per se, it’s as good a day as any to remind the people in your life that you think they’re pretty freaking awesome.  To help you express your loving sentiments – the sustainable way – The Jew & The Carrot offers our newest resource list:

Kosher Sustainable C.H.O.C.O.L.A.T.E

All of the chocolate bars included on the list are kosher-cerfitied and some combination of organic, fair trade, cane-sugar sweetened, and vegan.  (sweet!)  If you want to put that chocolate bar to even better use, check out Chef Laura Frankel’s amazing recipe for chocolate mousse.  And if you’re looking for something a little bit more risque, the company Green Knickers is offering a Valentine’s day special: a bar of chocolate from Divine with every pair of organic cotton, fair trade boxers or briefs you purchase.  (I can’t find anything on Divine’s kashrut status, but this was too cute not to include.  Thanks to Grist for the hat tip.)

    Great job with this list! By the way it’s written, it seems like some folks at Hazon had themselves a heavenly few weeks tasting all the different brands…

    Now we just need to get on these companies’ cases to make kosher for Passover chocolates, so we can stop selling those awful K for P milk chocolates as Hebrew School fundraisers!

    I have indeed tasted all the brands listed (scanning to see if that’s really true…yep), though my research has been a long and delightfully drawn out. :)

    Right on about banning that chocolate “Pesa-drecht,” as my mom’s family calls all Passover deserts.

    Need to clarify, Leah. The “pesa-drecht” is from the old days of desserts when everything tasted like cardboard with sugar on it. Somehow our dear friend, Martha, has managed to make some pretty smashing desserts for Passover using all the “updated” Kosher-for-Passover products which now grace the shelves after Purim is over. I think the real trick is to leave out the matzoh!

    Enticing post! Love, Mom

    Hi..I saw your comment at blogHer when I left a thank you for the inclusion in the chocolate post. I do a lot of posts and recipes for Jewish holidays and I hope you don’t mind if I bookmark you and perhaps link to you when Pesach gets closer.

    Your blog looks great!

  5. Leah Koenig Says:

    You’re right mom, Martha has got the kosher-for-Passover dessert thing down.

    Thanks Ella! Your blog is really great – food and politics is a delicious combination. Definitely feel free to link to us for Pesach (or whenever) – and we’ll do the same!

    I tasted organic kosher chocolate for the first time the other way and have to say I was very impressed. It was really nice.

    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because
    I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
