Eat Chocolate, Help Save the World!

I love socially-conscious vendors.  People who are in it for more than just a profit, thank you!  I’m not going to give up my two squares of after-dinner dark chocolate, so I want to support these chocolatiers with a cause!

With a motto of “the sweetest way to save a life,” Rescue Chocolate (out of Brooklyn, yo!) donates 100% of its net profits to animal rescue groups around the country.

All bars are:

  • Organic & Fairly-traded
  • Vegan
  • Kosher

I haven’t tried these chocolates yet, but their bars called “The Fix,” which is made of 66% cocoa and “Pick Me! Pepper” (mmm… spicy!) are on my list to try next.

Check ‘em out here!

Endangered Species Chocolate


Endangered Species Chocolate (out of Indianapolis, IN) was born out of a desire to make an impact on the growing number of plant and animal species that are disappearing from Earth.

Their darkest chocolate bar boasts an 88% cocoa content (can you handle it?)
