Savor Chocolate. Save our Planet
Sometimes I come across a company that is doing so many things in their business, beyond making a profit for themselves. Giving back and making a difference globally.
Endangered Species Chocolate is one of those companies whose moral and ethical standards rise above many other companies.
I will get to the chocolate in a minute, but in Honor of Endangered Species Day May 18th, I want to tell you a little about what they do in that regard to giving back.
From their website:
The Heart of Who We Are
We are a for-profit company on a mission! Each year, we donate 10% of net profits generated through chocolate purchases to organizations that support species, habitat and humanity. Each organization we partner with can count on a minimum, guaranteed donation of $10,000.
Presence. Planet. Prosperity.Starting out as a humble chocolate company nestled in the Oregon’s Rogue Valley in 1993, Endangered Species Chocolate was created to spread awareness and make an impact on the growing number of plant and animal species disappearing from the Earth. We began with a line of twelve all-natural chocolate bars that sold well in small natural food stores across the northwest. Today, we are one of the leaders in natural and organic chocolate manufacturing. With more than 30 all-natural and organic products, our chocolates can now be found in large and small natural and conventional grocers throughout the U.S.A. and Canada. Based now in Indianapolis, Indiana, we remain privately-owned and operated and are inspired to expand on the original ideals that started this company.

I think we get used to eating the 'cheap' chocolate for lack of a better description, the kind you pick up in the checkout aisle on the way out of the store. The famous, yet filled with much more than Cacao and real chocolate. It does take some time to get a hankering for the flavor of true, chocolate, but once you do, you will never want to return to the 'cheap' stuff! I love how Endangered Species Chocolate makes unique bars of chocolate, with ingredients you wouldn't think about putting in a bar. I wouldn't even call these 'candy bars', they don't fit into that category at all! They are true chocolate bars.
You have the opportunity to win $20 worth of assorted bars from Endangered Species Chocolate in celebration of Endangered Species Day!!
