Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why did you make your chocolate bars smaller?
A. During the last few years, cocoa prices have gone up (which is great news for small farmers!), and so Equal Exchange made the decision to change our format rather than increase our price per bar. We hope that selling our chocolate in slightly smaller bars will help keep our chocolate affordable for you and your customers, so that together we will sell more chocolate that benefits small-scale farmers.
Q. Did you change your recipes?
A. The recipes for all of our dark chocolate bars are remaining exactly the same – the bars are slightly thinner, but otherwise will not taste different. However, our Organic Milk Chocolate recipe has changed: it is now made without hazelnuts. We are excited to offer this updated, traditional milk chocolate bar, and we hope you'll love it.
Q. I received some 100g bars and some 80g bars in my order. Did you make a mistake?
A. We will continue to sell 100g bars until we run out of them. However, to keep things simpler for you, all of our chocolate bars – both 80g and 100g -- are now available at the same new, lower price.
Q. When is each chocolate bar transitioning to the smaller size?
A. Each chocolate bar variety will transition at a slightly different time, and some may go back and forth between 100g and 80g between now and June. If you are curious about whether the varieties you are ordering will be 80g or 100g, check our online store or call customer service at 774-776-7366 for the most up-to-date information.
Q. Why is my favorite chocolate still out of stock?
A. A big transition like this one is unfortunately never seamless. We are receiving the new bars from our manufacturer over a period of a few weeks, and your favorite chocolate should be in stock soon.
Q. What does 88% cacao chocolate taste like?
A. We'd encourage you to do a tasting and decide for yourself! 88% cacao chocolate is not very sweet. If you or your customers enjoy our Panama Extra Dark chocolate, which is 80% cacao, you may like this bar too.
