They give the recipient a little treat - which doesn't destroy the home of the Sumatran tiger or the orangutan, because they don't contain palm oil.   The rainforest is being destroyed rapidly by our desire for products with palm oil in them - and rainforests are home to these wonderful but sadly endangered species.  As well as giving the recipient a little treat, they give them the chance perhaps to try something new that they may not have heard of or tried before.
