GOOD - FOR -THE- EARTH GOODIES Taste Alter Eco's oh-so-delicious truffles Words by Mathieu Senard It's hard to argue that chocolate is anything but an American staple. In fact, last year Americans purchased 8.6 pounds of chocolate per person according to Euromonitor, most of which was consumed during the holiday months. And it's easy to understand why. A delicious sweet treat, dark chocolate in particular boasts benefits ranging from being antioxidant-rich, resulting in healthier skin, to being an enjoyable energy boost. But beyond satisfying taste buds and being a functional dessert in moderation, brands like Alter Eco are innovating dark chocolate goodies that are simply good all around, all year long. The company set out to reinvent the most awe-inspiring, over-the-top chocolate experience ever with its gourmet truffles. They use only high-quality organic and non-GMO ingredients, fair trade and sustainable practices with farmers across the globe, and even enclose their truffles in compostable wrappers for full-circle sustainability at every turn.
