  • I am not going to lie and act like I pay attention to that when I buy my coffee and chocolate.  I like Hersheys and Nesquick, I drink Starbucks when I get coffee.

  • I dont pay attention I guess either. I just buy the brands I like.

  • I don't usually buy chocolate, but I do try very hard to buy fair trade coffee. We have a keurig so most of the time we buy Green Mountain k cups. I don't mind paying more for something knowing that the people on the other end are being treated fairly.

  • I buy what I buy. I live in a rural area and we don't have access to much of the expensive special stuff.

  • Non only does Hershey's refuse to commit to fairly traded chocolate, last year they moved their manufacturing to Mexico, costing hundreds of American jobs.

    We only buy fairly traded chocolate and coffee; it is a way to help make the planet a little bit better.

  • I buy organic, fairly traded beans at Costco; about $12 worth lasts me two months.

    I rarely buy chocolate, but I always buy fairly traded, usually at Trader Joes.
