The newest addition to the Endangered Species Chocolate link is the Dark Chocolate with Caramel and Sea Salt bar. As with all of the chocolates, this bar is made with fair-trade certified ingredients. It's verified by the Non-GMO Project and is certified gluten-free and vegan. Using ingredients that meet their strict standards for quality, ethical trade, and environmental sustainability is a top priority for Endangered Species Chocolate.
The Dark Chocolate with Caramel and Sea Salt bar is So. Good. The organic caramel center has pink Himalayan sea salt in there as well, which I appreciated--normally I find that candy bars have the sea salt on top of the bar, which can get a little messy. The flavor is just beyond amazing. The bittersweet dark chocolate balances perfectly with the sweetness of the caramel, and the salt cuts through to give you a bit of savory, too.
The wrapper features a Bald Eagle on the front, and inside there's information about the species and the Endangered Species Chocolate 10% GiveBack partners.
They outline current threats to the bald eagle, but do show that the population is increasing! There's also information about The Peregrine Fund, which is not a current GiveBack partner but may be a past or future partner. In the meantime, you can check them out to learn how to help endangered birds like the bald eagle.
Aside from this bar being incredibly delicious, I really like that each purchase helps support programs that promote conservation. Endangered Species Chocolate's current partners are the African Elephant Foundation, which trains rangers, uses sniffer dogs to help prevent poaching, and empowers communities to help benefit both wildlife and humans; and The Xerces Society, which protects wildlife through the conservation of invertebrates and their habitats.
The Endangered Species Chocolate Dark Chocolate with Caramel and Sea Salt bar is available online from Amazon and Lucky Vitamin. It's also available at Kroger, and I saw it at Wegmans recently, too.
