I was thrilled to learn today from Co-op America that fair trade ice cream is now available! No, this is not ice cream imported from developing countries (it would be awfully melty by the time it arrived here!). I’m talking about delicious cold stuff that uses fair trade ingredients like coffee, vanilla and, of course, chocolate! According to Co-op America, brands of fair trade ice cream include certain flavors of Temptation Organics, Blackwell’s Organic, Ben and Jerry’s, and Stonyfield Farms. I love that fair trade ingredients are finding their way into so many good things, so there’s less reason to feel guilty eating it (although I think it’s safe to say the calorie count is no different!). I haven’t seen this good stuff in any stores around me, although I’m going to start looking.
