Endangered Species Chocolate Review and Giveaway

I am very passionate about eating healthfully and mindfully. I am a huge lover of choclate.  I am also very passionate about living an earth-friendly lifestyle.  That is why I was so drawn to Endangered Species Chocolate! With Earth Day coming up, this is a company you want to take note of.

They are a mission-driven company that is passionate about chocolate and the environment. They are fully committed to providing premium, all-natural, ethically traded, naturally shade grown chocolate products. Endangered Species Chocolate confirms that all beans used in its products are purchased from family-owned properties where the income benefits the community. 10% of our net profits are donated to fund species and habitat conservation efforts. I love their slogan, "Savor chocolate. Save our planet." Clever, right? Memorable too!

Here is what I like most about Endangered Species Chocolate that I believe sets them apart from your average joe chocolate company.


• All-Natural and Organic ingredients - leaving no room for artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.

•With cocoa contents ranging from 70 – 88%, their dark chocolates have plenty of beneficial antioxidants and flavonoids.
•10% of their profits are donated to non-profit groups that support species and habitat conservation.

•All of their chocolate is shade-grown. Shade-grown chocolate supports lush forests and the species that thrive there promoting biodiversity, providing shelter for migratory birds, and combating global warming.

•Cacao used to create our All-Natural and Organic chocolate products is grown on farm co-ops that foster responsible labor practices, community enrichment and sustainable farming.

I received a few of their all-natural dark chocolate bars:

Extreme Dark Chocolate - this is their highest cocoa content bar, with 88% Cocoa!! It was still quite tasty, and vegan!! You can still enjoy chocolate and be vegan! Love that!

Dark Chocolate with Cranberries and Almonds  - This bar has 72% Cocoa, and is vegan also! I think this one was my favorite, because I love the chunks of cranberries and almonds.

Dark Chocolate with Mint - With 72% Cocoa and a minty freshness, this bar was also very tasty. Perfect for after dinner!


Basically if you are a chocolate lover, you will love Endangered Species Chocolates. They are high quality, very eco-conscious, and healthy for you! What is not to love?

Check out all their other products and varieties on their site. You can even buy them online! What better treat is there to give yourself on Earth Day?
