This morning we found an excuse for indulging in chocolate, dates, nuts and biscuits, despite it being Ash Wednesday. Because there would be more people than usual around for the cafe, it seemed the perfect day to promote fair trade in fairtrade fortnight. The Divine milk and white chocolate were popular, as were the dates (purchased from the World Shop at RISC on London Street), but there were reservations about the Traidcraft ginger biscuits which some people found too fiery. Traidcraft's chocolate chip shortbread, however, was the most popular of all (especially with the smallest attendees). The cafe regulars, Oasis and extras for the morning Ash Wednesday service all joined in.
