YUMMY Endangered Species chocolate!

YUMMY! One taste of Endangered Species chocolate and you’ll agree it’s more than just yummy. I’ve tried many different brands of dark chocolate and still none have been able to compete with the taste and richness of Endangered Species chocolate. Chocolate is one of those foods that everyone loves but know that’s its not healthy to eat, due to the large amounts of sugar that they add to make it appealing to the taste buds. I know because I use to have to deal with the same issues of finding a healthy chocolate that I could enjoy with a cup of hot delicious coffee.

Endangered Species chocolate stands out

How I discovered Endangered Species chocolate was by accident but I like to think of it as fate. At the time I was buying another good brand from the regular grocery stores due to all the benefits that true dark chocolate can offer. It can help lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and combined with a healthy diet, help prevent certain cancers. These are things that regular, highly processed chocolates that I consider garbage don’t provide. Walk through the isles of your regular grocery store and you’ll see many types of chocolate by large manufacturers screaming for your attention from the shelves. Now turn the wrapper to the back like I do whenever I’m checking out a new product, and read the nutrition facts. The sugar content is usually very high up into the twenty something gram range, and that’s just for a little piece.

The more expensive brand that I was buying at the time was much lower in sugar and contained a large amount of Cocoa, ninety percent to be correct. Plus the sugar content was in the single digits. I figured that this was the best chocolate at the time and was all that I would buy. When I discovered the Endangered Species chocolate while looking through the isle of the specialty food store, I wasn’t sure if it would be as good as my preferred dark chocolate at the time. I’ll confess that I was loyal to the other brand and thought I knew everything there was to know about dark chocolate. Still there were a few things that drew me to the Endangered Species chocolate and after reading the front of the wrapper and the nutrition facts, I decided that it might be worth giving a try. Plus the brand that I was buying from the regular grocery store was all sold out and desperation was soon to set in.

Endangered Species chocolate is healthier

At first when you compare the front wrapper of the Endangered Species chocolate to the other brand it looks like the Endangered Species has a higher sugar content. After reading the nutrition facts you’ll realize that the Endangered Species has five grams of sugar for half the bar while the other brand has four grams for a quarter of the bar. In this aspect the Endangered Species chocolate has way less sugar and more Cocoa, even though the other brand falsely advertises as having more. This not only makes the Endangered Species much healthier for you but also tastes way more richer and smoother.

Endangered Species chocolate tastes best

Immediately as I bit into the Endangered Species chocolate I was blown away with how great it tasted. In no way could the other brand of chocolate get close to competing, or any other chocolate that I’ve had before this. The way it crumbled in my mouth and melted, to the much richer and deeper taste, my taste-buds were assaulted by all the natural unprocessed ingredients that they use. I could definitely tell that they put a lot of time and effort into making this chocolate without falsely advertising how natural and healthy it is for you. Even the thickness of this bar is greater while still being way lower in calories and fat. This is a good sign that they use way better ingredients in their bars and are also more ethical in their statements.

Endangered Species chocolate saves animals

The biggest surprise came not too long ago. On the front wrapper they claim that ten percent of net profits are donated to fund the protection of endangered species. My buddy Louie got nosy one day and opened up the wrapper to see what it said on the inside. To my surprise they include facts about different endangered species and how environmental factors such as actions by humans, are decreasing the population of these different unique species. On this particular wrapper they gave some very interesting and sad truths about the Jaguar, that is the largest wild cat in North America. The Jaguar is a very beautiful and amazing hunter with the strongest bite of any cat in the world.

I like the fact that they donate funds to help reverse the decline of endangered species because I happen to be a big time animal lover myself. Instead of just buying a dark chocolate bar from some huge manufacturer with all the funds going into the corporate executives pockets, I’m buying a way better tasting and healthier dark chocolate bar that’s also giving to a good cause. Now everytime I take a bite, I know that I’m not only doing a good thing for my health, but also for the wild animal population.

Would I recommend Endangered Species chocolate? My answer is absolutely yes! The packaging is very creative and beautifully put together. This shows that they take a lot of time to make their products look great on the store shelves, and truly understand how to reach their target market. They also put a lot of effort and heart into making their dark chocolate bars taste great by using high quality and natural ingredients. Unlike many other manufacturers there’s no false advertising or claims just to get you to buy their chocolate bars just to be hugely disappointed. It shows how ethical this company truly is, and makes me want to continue to only buy their dark chocolate over all the other garbage brands that exist on the market. And let’s not forget that they are doing something about helping the endangered  species such as the Jaguar which would be a complete shame to see disappear forever. It shows that they aren’t just out to make money but to also do a good cause. With such a worthy cause and how great their dark chocolate is, I’d say that they are on the right road to true YUMMINESS!!

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( https://www.instagram.com/tayo_home/ ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

    Keep up the good work on your blog.
