I have recently become a fan of the lovely state of New Mexico when two of the most fabulous women I know moved there. They had given me a peek inside their local chocolate industry with a gift of the most incredible drinking chocolate elixir. It was like a spiritual experience. Ommmmmm.
The ChocolateSmith claims to produce "honest" chocolate which isn't a term I'd heard before but it appeals to me. They make their chocolates in full view of their patrons and support local and organic traditions and the living wage principle. That get's my vote.
