If you are anything like me, you love chocolate. There are many options and varieties on the market, but the trick is to find something made from sustainable sources. With cacao growing best in the shade and the rainforest being cut down rapidly it's easier said than done. Unless you know about Endangered Species Chocolate.
In addition to offering certified organic chocolate, they source their cacao from sustainable farming and ensure fair wages for the cacao farmers as part of their ethical trade criteria.
Endangered Species Chocolate Review
At first glance, the Endangered Species Chocolate bars don't look like the typical chocolate bar. They feature photographs of endangered species around the world. The animal represents a specific flavor, like a Black Panther on one of their most popular the All-Natural Extreme Dark Chocolate with an astonishing 88% cocoa content! Now that's dark.
I enjoy feeling good about choosing this chocolate in that I'm helping endangered animals at the same time. Deciding on a different company, even for the same products, can make such a difference. It's a nice little extra happy thought when I'm indulging.
Another thing I really like is their choice of ingredients, like organic dried cane syrup and unbleached water filtered beet sugar. What other chocolate has that? I had never heard of unbleached water filtered beet sugar before. It's different and it's natural.
They also really spice up their flavor combinations with healthy and exotic ingredients. Take three of the Endangered Species Organic Dark Chocolate bars; with (1) Cacao Nibs, Yacon and Acai, (2) Goji Berry, Pecans and Maca, and (3) Golden Berry and Lucuma. It really makes me want to try every flavor as they are such unique combinations.
I must say I really want to try the Extreme Dark Chocolate, as dark chocolate is my personal favorite. I didn't see it at my local grocery store so I picked up the Dark Chocolate with Hazelnut Toffee and Dark Chocolate with Espresso Beans. And they'll be
eaten reviewed later.
