Organic Chocolate on Sale!

December 26th, 2007

Last month, when I wrote a post about the Best Store-Bought Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever, my cyberbuddy Sher from passed along a recommendation for Green & Black’s Organic Dark Chocolate.

Ever faithful to the cause of ferreting out truly worthwhile organic products, I tried Green & Black’s, and just as Sher said, it’s “da bomb.” And of course, purely in the name of research, I couldn’t just stop after sampling the dark chocolate Sher recommended. No, I had to try the luscious raisin & hazelnut and the espresso flavors too.

An LED Rant, Warning and Recommendation

December 10th, 2007

Here at the Green Tacky, Tacky home front, we were quite content with our new environmentally friendly LED lights procured from Target Friday evening. However, upon trying to install them this weekend, we realized that the lights were designed for built-in obsolescence. If one light blows, there’s no way to remove it to replace the bulb. Riddle me this: why are products only half-way green? You see it all the time: organic food served on Styrofoam plates or plastic cards in a food co-op. It just is crazy.

So off we set to our neighborhood hardware store, Strosniders, where they tend to carry the very finest of everything. (They also happen to be 100% wind-powered, isn’t that cool?) For about $3 more a box than the cheap environmentally unfriendly LEDs we bought at Target, we purchased replacement LEDs that came complete with two spare bulbs in the packaging.
