Treat your mom to a variety of chocolaty sweets this Mother’s day. Thank your mom with freshly made chocolates and ice cream. A delicious discovery awaits west side families at ChocGlitz & Cream here in Albuquerque. This locally owned chocolate and ice cream shop is one of the newest additions to the retail boom taking place along the northwest corridor of Unser. Opened July of 2015, owners Keith and self-proclaimed “Chocolate Nut” Celeste Davis wanted to focus on fair trade certified chocolate, and ice cream. All of the candy in the candy case, and all of the ice creams are made on the premises! You can’t get much fresher than that! Celeste has been making chocolates for friends and family for many years. Some of the recipes used are longtime family favorites, like the English Toffee, and Coconut Creams! The ice cream flavors are often inspired by a trip to the grocery store, or customer requests.
Fair trade certified chocolate is important because there is a lot of exploitation with crop prices and labor wages in the cocoa industry. Most of the world’s cocoa is grown on small farms in very poor countries around the equator. Often the farmer does not have the negotiating power to get the best price for his crop, so he just takes what is offered. When he sells through a fair trade certified program he is guaranteed a fair price and can better support his family, which helps his local community!
