Tony’s Chocolonely, a chocolate company, and Ben & Jerry’s are celebrating their Chocolate Love A-Fair with two new chocolate bar flavors and one new ice cream pint. The launch celebrates values-led company,
Ben & Jerry’s, committing to the Tony’s Open Chain initiative announced last summer.
Tony’s two new chocolate bars are inspired by two of Ben & Jerry’s classic flavors, Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Strawberry Cheesecake. The new Ben & Jerry’s pint is inspired by Tony's Chocolonely’s milk chocolate caramel sea salt bar.
One bar combines Tony’s Chocolonely’s dark milk chocolate and brownie pieces. The second bar features Tony’s Chocolonely’s white cheesecake-style chocolate with sticky strawberries and crumbly cookie pieces. The new bars join Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor, Chocolatey Love A-Fair, chocolatey ice cream with salted caramel swirls, caramel chunks and sea salt fudge chunks.
Last summer, Ben & Jerry’s joined Tony's mission to end the 30,000 cases of modern slavery and 1.56 million cases of child labor still present in the chocolate industry in Ghana and Cote d’ Ivoire today by committing to sourcing its cocoa through Tony's Open Chain. Tony’s Open Chain helps companies take responsibility by ensuring a fully traceable cocoa supply chain and paying a higher price to address poverty, the root cause of social injustice for cocoa farmers. This is the next step in Ben & Jerry’s cocoa journey; on top of paying a Fairtrade Premium and a Living Income Reference Price for its cocoa, Ben & Jerry’s will pay a fee to further support partner co-operatives.
Ben & Jerry’s has also begun converting to fully traceable cocoa beans, to not only know which farmers produced the beans that go into their ice cream, but also under which circumstances those cocoa beans were grown.
The limited-edition collab chocolate bar flavors are now available at Albertsons and online at Tony's chocoshop.
