A chain of supermarkets has said that all the chocolate that it sells will now be "fair trade." This means that the people who grow the cocoa beans will be given a decent wage.
But it might also mean that it costs a bit more for you to buy.
Would you pay that little bit more make sure people weren't being exploited, or aren't you that bothered?
I would pay loads more - it helps people who make the chocolate for us! I have tried fair trade chocolate, it tastes really nice! If you ever see a chocolate bar called "Divine" try it! It is fair trade!

Chocolate costs too much anyway. It's supermarkets exploiting these people, and our own farmers! I don't know if I'd pay more, because how much will go to the supermarkets first?

Chocolate's nice, but it's not essential! Why should people be exploited because of it? By the way, there is also Fair Trade coffee, tea, and a whole range of other stuff! It tastes just as nice, it's only a little bit more expensive, but it helps save people's lives! I think it's well worth a bit extra money.

A few pennies extra is nothing compared to how the people who grow beans suffer. It's our duty to help and this is an easy way to do it.

I think paying a larger price for chocolate is okay, as long as the people who grow the cocoa beans get fair wages.

Everyone says they will, but they don't bother. You see, it's nowhere to be found! People aren't going to traipse around just to buy fair trade when they can pick a Mars bar or whatever straight of the shelf! They need more to be sold in more places!

I would if I could find any! No shops seem to sell it! I want to help people but how can I if they don't sell fair trade stuff?

Yeah, paying a little more for chocolate is nothing compared to the way that people are being exploited over the world.

It wouldn't really bother me...chocolate seems to be going up in price at the moment anyway. But if it helps people who grow the cocoa beans to get a better wage then I wouldn't mind.

I'd definitely pay more because then at least you feel like you've done something good to help the people who are slaves instead of contributing to the problem.

Chocolate used to be around 27p, and now it's risen to 35p+ , It's too much as it is for us to pay anymore!

I would pay more, but I haven't seen many Fair Trade products, just stuff like tea. Companies need to make more of an effort to produce more Fair Trade items quickly.

I'd definitely pay a bit more- why should anyone be exploited just for chocolate?
