How to Satisfy Cravings in the Urban Garden

September 30, 2010 by

So you want to eat locally procured food and it’s that time of the month or that time of the day when the craving for chocolate is so strong that you might do something foolish to get your hands on some?

John and Kira’s chocolate bars can please the chocoholic locavore and maybe even the urban forager. The fresh rosemary in the bars comes from four urban gardens in Philadelphia and Washington, DC. And you are doing a good deed as you satisfy your cravings: 5% of the sale price goes directly back to the gardens to support the educational programs the gardens provide to inner city youth. There’s also a Mighty Mint bar that infuses mint leaves picked by the student gardeners at Drew Elementary and UC High School.

$8 from John & Kira’s

    If only they had added an “S” to the garden part of the title! It would have made the bars even tastier. 🙂 Seriously though, they sound yummy, and what a lovely idea to share a piece of the proceeds on such a good cause.

    For a moment I thought you had designed your own chocolate bar!

    Yesterday learned about two local chocolate bar makers — Mast Brothers and Chocolat Moderne — and glad to add a third to my list, especially one with a garden theme and community benefit!
