The great thing about it is the very clean ingredient list (no soy!): Organic and fairly-traded cocoa beans, organic and fairly-traded sugar, organic and fairly-traded cocoa butter, organic and fairly-traded ground vanilla bean, and organic orange essential oil. Please check the label prior to purchasing to confirm the ingredient list has not changed.
