If you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you know that I love chocolate in any shape or form. I can’t tell you the last time I turned something with chocolate away (unless it had gluten in it). The wonderful people over at Endangered Species Chocolate contacted me a couple weeks back to let me know that all of their chocolate is gluten-free!!! How cool is that? Not only that, but would I like to try some samples. Ummm…….let me think about it. HECK YEAH!!! Yesterday when I got home from the craziness of the morning, I found a nice package on my doorstep. Inside were 3-3oz chocolate bars (2 supreme dark 72% cocoa and 1 milk chocolate w/almonds) and 4-.35 oz chocolate treats (2 dark chocolate mint & 2 dark chocolate).
Endangered Species Choc0late donates 10% of their profit to help support species, habitat & humanity. You can read their story here. Their mission is:
Empowering individuals to create solutions that sustain species, habitat & humanity.
My most favorite statement on their brochure? Savor chocolate. Save the planet. Well said.
I decided to spread the love with my chocolate. Yes, chocolate is very good when you can have it all to yourself, but not only do you end up over-indulging then, but your friends might not appreciate watching you scarf down a whole bar and not sharing the love. So, I broke out my dark chocolate & milk chocolate w/almond bars after dining with 2 of my BFFs the other night. We all were in love at first taste! Really, how can you go back to Hershey’s (sorry, Special Dark & Dove) you know I love you, but seriously, this stuff is like solid gold (I was going to say liquid gold, but that doesn’t really make a lot of sense if the chocolate isn’t melted, does it? LOL! Such intense flavors, thick bar, amazing aftertaste. It helps that I had 2 other people try is so you all don’t accuse me of liking everything that I try. Yes, I like food and chocolate, especially, but I pride myself on being honest. I know how hard it is to find good, gluten-free foods.
My son, Jon tried the Dark Chocolate & Mint, as I am not a fan of mint. Yes, there is a chocolate that I don’t care for. It is okay, don’t worry. There is plenty of other chocolate to indulge in. Jon ooohed & ahhhhed over this chocolate. He seriously did not shut up the whole time it was in his mouth. He did mention that there was an odd aftertaste. I may have to try it now to see what he is referring to. He may not be used to good chocolate! LOL!! He is your 3 Musketeers Mint Bar dude!
I love this product & will be making sure to keep supporting such a wonderful company. Thank you for the samples & allowing me the chance to review your product!
