It’s the week of Valentine’s Day. We’re going all chocolate-all the time. That’s right – we’re going to highlight chocolate every day until we share seven vegan candies you can enjoy this Valentine’s.
I mean, is there really a better thing to get from your Valentine? And while chocolate can certainly be romantic, you can share chocolate with a friend, neighbor, co-worker, sibling, child – anyone really. It’s just a delectable sweet perfect for any sweetie!
First out of the gate this holiday is a newer offering from Endangered Species Chocolate. We wrote about them before, back in May of 2012, and mentioned many of the company’s awesome attributes, such as how they donate 10% of net profits to support endangered wildlife. Their chocolate is also Rainforest Alliance Certified, Non-GMO, ethically traded and gluten free.
And now, they are offering a line of creme-filled bars. Yes. You are seeing correctly – vegan creme-filled dark chocolate bars.
These heavenly bites come in a variety of flavors: Sea Salt & Lime, Almond Butter, Coconut, Blueberry Vanilla, Orange Raspberry and Lavender Mint. We have thus far only found the Filled bars at Whole Foods, Vitamin Shoppes, and other natural foods stores. You can also get them online from Amazon.comThe DH and I, as well as a few friends, sampled three of the filled Endangered Species bars. The chocolate is smooth and lush, and melts evenly with each bite. The creme filling isn’t gooey, like the Easter candy you grew up with, but the soft texture compliments the richness of the chocolate and combines in your mouth perfectly.
And after all, if you can help animals AND eat chocolate, that seems like a pretty great combination for any Valentine!
