- Beyond Fair Trade
Entirely produced in Ghana – from beans – not manufactured from previously processed components in Europe. I understand that hard-core chocolate snobs pinpoint this speck of West Africa as the mecca for the best on earth. One can taste that.
The trouble is getting your hands on some. I’d rather deal with my grocer than Amazon. Addictive.
Delicious, rich and not exploitative!
Great hot chocolate
awesome hot cocoa
said to be produced without slavery; helpful product, no fructose corn-syrup’ and tastes great
The Omanhene organization has a website under that name, and the package label says the company works out of the state of Wisconsin.
The label has lots of very interesting facts, such as:
A) “In a unique process, our beans are fermented between banana leaves and dried in the warm African sun. Then we roast, grind and press the beans to extract the finest natural cocoa powder available anywhere…..”
B). “Omanhene” (OH -mahn-HEE-nee) comes from the Twi language and is the title for the traditional king or chief, the repository of ethical and moral authority in Ghana.”
We’ve tried this at our house both with milk and with water, and thought it very good tasting, sugar not overpowering.
Our order was a pack of four, 12 ounces each, nice seal under the plastic lid.
Some nutrition facts are: 14 servings of 2 tbsp each per 12 ounce-container…

Mixing directions are on the label. Again, lucky to have this alternative to corn syrup, dry milk, and standard cocoa mixes. Recommended, and hope you like this, too.
