This Tony’s Chocolonely Lemon Meringue Milk Chocolate Bar is a fun Easter chocolate bar with a difference – find a Fairtrade chocolate Easter Egg hidden in the bar and break it out! Made from delicious Fairtrade milk chocolate with little pieces of meringue (made from free-range eggs) and a hint of zesty lemon, this is a fun and ethical Easter treat.
This ethical milk chocolate Easter Egg bar is made with 32% cocoa and has a decorative yellow wrapper with a fun Easter design, making it a lovely gift. As with all Tony’s bars it is wonderfully whacky with blocks in irregular sizes to show how profits in the global chocolate industry are unfairly divided around an Easter Egg. A chunky chocolate bar that is big enough to share - if you have to!
Enjoy this special Easter treat with a clear conscience, this Fair Trade chocolate provides a living wage to cocoa farmers in its cooperatives and insures no illegal child slavery exists on its farms. 100% slave free.

Tony’s Chocolonely is the yummy brainchild of Teun van de Keuk – a Dutch journalist who exposed child slave labour in the chocolate in the cocoa industry. Teun (Dutch for Tony) was shocked to discover how rife slave labour of both children and adults is in West Africa where 60% of the world's cocoa beans are grown and decided to take action. In 2005, he set up his own Fairtrade chocolate business, making delicious chocolate bars that are guaranteed to be grown and manufactured in a process that excludes slave labour. Break the chains of slavery with each bite.
Tony’s chocolonely chocolate is certified Fairtrade – a certification standard that sets minimum social and environmental standards for the growers and environment, and sets a minimum price for co-operatives. The cocoa beans used to make this bar are farmed in Ghana and the Ivory Coast. Some of the beans used to make Tony’s chocolonely chocolate is organically farmed as the prime focus is on tackling the social harm caused by the cocoa industry, the bars cannot be certified as organic.
Eco-friendly at every step, Tony’s chocolonely is made using cocoa beans grown by co-operatives who using environmentally-friendly methods with minimal pesticides and chemical fertilisers and without deforestation. To reduce the impact of climate change on cocoa farmers, all emissions from Tony’s chocolonely manufacturing processes are offset by Justdiggit – an environmental organisation that supports projects that cool down the planet.
