Endangered Species Chocolate Review & Earth Day Giveaway



Since its almost Earth Day, I wanted to bring to your attention a company called Endangered Species Chocolate that makes some amazing, all natural chocolate. But their great tasting, gourmet chocolate is only half the story.  They are a company that strives to make a difference in their world. 10% of all their profits go directly to charities that support animals, the environment, and the earth. With Earth Day only a few weeks away, they are the perfect company to support.





I was lucky enough to get to try three flavors of the chocolate bars available from Endangered Species Chocolates which includes: Supreme  Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate with Almonds, and Dark Chocolate with Deep Forest Mint. I love all natural food, but I also love my chocolate so I wasn't sure if these were going to win me over. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they taste just as good and in some cases better than most store bought chocolate. The adorable packaging with different animals like birds and chimps made them even more appealing, especially to my children.




In addition to their bars, Endangered Species Chocolates has lots of other gourmet chocolate creations including chocolate covered nuts and other tasty confections. You can also find gift baskets and towers that would make great gifts for Easter or Mother's Day. To learn more about all they have to offer be sure to visit their website. And keep an eye out for the Earth Day contest that will be hosting along with Whole Foods coming this month.







In honor of Earth Day,one lucky winner is going to an assortment of Endangered Species Chocolates valued at $25. To enter, you can do any of the following. Leave one comment for each task you have completed.

1.    1) Leave a comment telling me something that you plan to do for Earth Day.
2.    2) Visit the Endangered Species Chocolate webpage and post a comment on their blog!
3.    3)Become a follower of ESC on Twitter and/or Like them on Facebook (one entry each)
4.    4) Leave a comment  letting me know what your favorite animal is.
5.    5) Bonus Entry - link back to this giveaway on your blog



This giveaway will end at midnight on  4/24/11 and is open to the continental US only. The winner will be chosen via a random number generator. Thanks again to Endangered Species Chocolate for offering this great prize!

I went to the beach for a walk on Earth Day and looked for any bottles or cans people left behind. When my kids were little they were disturbed to see how many cans, bottles and papers were strewn about our national parks, and so when they would see litter in the parks they would pick it up and put it in the trash cans.
