Endangered Species is a perennial favorite around here. They source their chocolate through sustainable, fair-trade, slavery-free providers. They give 10% of profits to organizations promoting conservation through their GiveBack Partner program. And of course they offer tasty bars that deliver the value, or else we’d be leaning toward other slavery-free chocolate brands. We like what they’re doing with their fancy flavors. But how do they do with straightforward dark chocolate?
For the most part, I’m not really into fruit in my chocolate, but I know some of you on my Patreon are, so I tried out Endangered Species’ cranberry-almond chocolate to thank you guys for your support. And to my surprise, I couldn’t really taste the cranberry! It’s hard to notice even if you’re looking for it, but it accents the bitterness of the chocolate with just a little tart flavor. The almond bits provide a little variety and crunch in the texture, and all in all, it’s Endangered Species; it’s good and dark. It’s not my favorite bar that Endangered Species offers (it’s hard to beat the chocolate-upon-chocolate of their cacao nibs bar), but even if you’re not a fruit-in-your-chocolate person, you may well enjoy this bar.
What’s better than chocolate? Chocolate with more chocolate.
If you, like me, would rather eat your coffee than drink it, you’ll enjoy this bar.
I love almonds. Smokehouse, salt and vinegar, habanero barbecue, you name it. Truth be told, I wouldn’t mind eating almonds with my daily Bible readings, except the blog isn’t called “Almond Book.” I have made my bed, and now I must sleep in it.
Well, that was a strange experience.
Look, I rate everything a four, because I love chocolate, and Endangered Species’ darkest dark chocolate bar? No exception.
