In this episode, we’re going to take a look at many different recommendations for passing out “ethical” chocolate(s) to rapacious trick-or-treaters (and I am not just talking about little kids) for Halloween.
I was inspired to take on this topic because of a post mentioning Tony’s Chocolonely showed up in a Google Alert. (It’s the link below to the first Green Matters post – Try These 7 Ethical Halloween Candy Brands for a More Socially Conscious Spooky Season.)

You’d think it might be easy (TL;DR: It should be) ... but there is a lot of conflicting, confusing, and downright bad advice out there on the Interwebs. There are some surprisingly good takes, including from unusual sources, one of which is also among the most confusing.
As always, I will be answering questions as well as responding to comments during the livestream from participants watching on YouTube, LinkedIn, and Facebook. I also respond to questions and comments posed on those platforms as well as Instagram and Twitter by those who were not in the livestream.
Links to Review and Thoughts to Consider
For helicopter parents and social climbers, I thought this was a sobering take to take in before we dive into the topic:
It should come as no surprise that the wording of the search request changes the results. Even subtle changes can return markedly different results.
