Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate, Fruits and Nuts Theme Week.
Today's chocolate was a 72% cocoa Dark Chocolate with Cranberries & Almonds bar from Endangered Species Chocolate (Indianapolis, IN).
This bittersweet dark bar had a slightly spicy, roasted cocoa aroma, and contained small chips of roasted almonds and sweetened cranberries. It was Gluten Free Certified, Non GMO Verified and Certified Vegan.
Endangered Species buys cocoa beans from relatively small farms and properties, and is Rainforest Alliance Certified.
The company also donates 10 percent of their net profits to organizations that support species conservation, habitat preservation and humanitarian efforts. Bar wrappers feature animals in need of protection or preservation and details about their plight. Packaging on this bar contained a haunting cut-away photo of the eyes of a Gray Wolf.
