I have really been into the Endangered Species Chocolates for awhile. I started seeing them years ago when I visited national parks where they sold these chocolate bars in the gift shops. The labels caught my eye because of the wildlife images. Since then I've gotten hooked on the Extreme Dark chocolate bars, which have 88% cocoa. That might be too high and bitter for some, but I love it. If you let a small square dissolve in your mouth, it's one smooth piece of chocolate. If you can check out their website, it's pretty cool because 10% of their profits go towards helping species, habitat and humanity. They also say they're ethically traded and support small, family owned cacao farmers. For those going green, this company is involved in that too. The website also talks about the health benefits of chocolate, especially for the heart. I come from a family where everyone has heart problems, so if eating a little chocolate helps, it's worth a try. But in all honesty, it was the cool looking wrappers that caught my attention in the first place -- now I'm hooked on these chocolate bars.
So -- what's your top five favorite chocolate foods?
