Grenada Chocolate Company Sails to Europe on a Carbon Neutral Journey
I've been following the story about Mott Green, owner of the Grenada Chocolate Company, and his quest to go carbon neutral by delivering 24,000 chocolate bars from Grenada to Europe via a wooden sailing cargo ship (with no engine). It took two months!
Durin the voyage Mott wrote a beautiful blog http://mottontresshombres.blogspot.com/. It reads like a diary of sailing from the Carribean to Europe with mentions of dolphins, whales, seeing the stars at night, sea swells, and of course the crew nibbling on chocolate daily. I beleive that the journey just endned as I received this tweet yesterday. More about the journey here http://www.grenadachocolate.com/treshombres.html

Grenada Chocolate is one of my favorites in the summer. Their chocolate tastes citrusy yet still has a deep chocolatey flavor which just seems to blend well with summer days.
When it is going to be a hot day I often make a sipping cocoa beverage in the morning using Grenada Chcolate's cocoa with water. I pour it over ice before leaving for work, then listen to music from the Carribean as I drive through Seattle.
