Two days in Toronto and Chocalate

Hi Everyone. I hope this entry find you all well and cheery. I am abit tired here today at 'Bijou's Whimsy', so I'll make today's post a quick and simple one. Making things abit slower however, is my un-cooperating 'delete' button! It was working find before, now it just isn't.

Anyhow, we spent the last two days in Toronto and we had a absolute ball. I spent the Tuesday hanging out with Judit again, and we finished off her carpet stand together, we were so proud of ourselves and happy that we didn't need any of the boys help, ha ha. Abit of time was spent on an electric bike. A new and absolutely fabulous restaurant was discovered and thoroughly enjoyed by all (Check out Toronto's "Fresh" if you already haven't, an all vegetarian place).

Wednesday included a lovely shopping spree...we haven't been to Toronto in awhile so we needed to shop and get some treats. We tried another great vegetarian place for lunch called "Vegetarian Haven". I parallel parked in the tight and crowded Kensington area (again cause for some proud-ness, ha ha). And after a busy morning and afternoon, we grabbed some coffees, jumped in our rental truck, blasted the jazz and drove home in the pouring rain to our furry babies.....ahhh it's always great to get back home, regardless of the great time had.

On our adventures we visited the store "Ten Thousand Villages", I know I mentioned the website before so I was delighted to learn that they actually had a physical store. Toronto actually has two different store locations. We got some of this divine chocolate, ohhh it's so good (and all consumed). It's a fair trade product for the cocoa bean farmers of Kuapa Kokoo, in Ghana. Besides being delicious chocolate, you can feel good buying it because you know proceeds will go to help the makers. Plus, I couldn't resist the absolutely gorgeous wrapper....

That's all for today. I have a bit of cleaning to do, I need to call my sweet momma, and after abit of yoga and lunch, I plan to just sit on the floor with the 4 furry monsters and colour some simple picture. Stay cozy on this rainy Thursday...till tomorrow.

It’s always good to hear that people are enjoying our chocolate and the Kuapa Kokoo cocoa farmers appreciate it too!

As well as receiving a Fairtrade price for their cocoa, they also receive profits from the sale of the Divine and Dubble chocolate bars because they own a significant share of Divine Chocolate Ltd.

This means that you can continue to enjoy Divine chocolate knowing that you are helping to improve the livelihoods of cocoa farmers in Ghana.

Thanks very much for the mention and for your support of Fairtrade.

Kind Regards, Funmi Ogunleye
