Why You’ll Love Fair Trade Dark Chocolate - 72% Cocoa
Chocolate—decadently rich, oh so satisfying, and loved by many. Not all chocolate is made the same, however, which means that it’s important to choose wisely. When you purchase Endangered Species Fair Trade Dark Chocolate, you know you are getting some of the highest quality chocolate that’s filled with pure, delicious flavor.
The perfect sweet
Chocolate is almost everywhere. It can be found in candy bars, cakes, molé , hot drinks, and more. Made from the cacao seeds that are harvested, roasted, and then ground, this sweet confection is available in different forms, like white chocolate and milk chocolate.
You’ll find great taste and a good concentration of antioxidants and flavonoids in Endangered Species Fair Trade Dark Chocolate because it’s made from pure cocoa. Here are some other reasons that this is a perfect chocolate treat:
- With a blend of organic ingredients and classic chocolatier traditions, this candy bar is truly dark yet smooth.
- Each wrapper provides knowledge about chimpanzees, a species at risk of vanishing in the wild.
- It also helps support conservation efforts through charity donations the company makes.
- This candy bar can be enjoyed on its own or used in recipes that call for dark chocolate. Or, pair it with fruit, dark beer, wine, and even some cheese to create a unique culinary experience.
How Endangered Species Chocolate makes a difference
The Endangered Species Chocolate brand is committed to providing customers with great tasting products while also having a positive impact on the planet, and it all starts with how the chocolate is actually made.
Some of the best cacao beans come from areas like Africa, Mexico, Costa Rica, and other tropical regions, exactly where Endangered Species goes to purchase their goods. The cocoa beans then go through an all-natural process to be dried and fermented, which allows them to retain their flavor until they arrive at the processing facility to be roasted and ground into powder. Different beans have different qualities, and Endangered Species carefully chooses the right roasting process to create a top-of-the-line product.
After the cocoa beans are ground into a silky powder, only natural ingredients are used to finish off the recipe. This includes cane sugar, vanilla, and soy. That’s right—no additives. This means it’s pure, delicious chocolate that can turn anyone into a chocoholic.
Not only is the chocolate top notch, but so is the company that makes it. Check out some of the reasons why Endangered Species Chocolate is so popular:
- Committed to providing gluten-free, vegan, and kosher chocolate so everyone can enjoy it.
- All products are organic and non-GMO.
- Their processing facilities are 100 percent powered by the wind, and the company has made numerous environmentally friendly improvements to reduce annual energy usage by 40 percent.
- The company sources cocoa beans from farms that use sustainable farming practices, helping reduce their environmental impact in a significant way. All farms are family-owned properties, which helps the communities that the farms exist in.
- Ten percent of all profits from Endangered Species Chocolate are donated to organizations that work to support species conservation, humanitarian efforts, and habitat preservation. These include Wildlife Conservation Network and the Rainforest Trust. Buying Endangered Species Fair Trade Dark Chocolate means that you’re doing your part to help animals who are threatened.
Other Endangered Species products
Endangered Species Fair Trade Dark Chocolate is only one of many great products from the company. It’s a brand that is focused on delivering high-quality candy bars while helping the world, which is exactly what they do with each of their rich, smooth treats that positively gives back to the environment.
Here are some other products from Endangered Species Chocolate that are definitely worth trying:
For an even darker, richer experience, this chocolate bar delivers. The increased amount of cocoa means that the dark chocolate taste is even more intense and provides higher levels of antioxidants. It’s an extreme candy bar for those who really love the taste of bitter chocolate. In keeping with the “dark” theme, the wrapper provides information on the black panther, an at-risk species that needs protection. As with all Endangered Species products, 10 percent of profits are donated to charities.
Blending rich, dark cocoa with organic cranberries and almonds creates a candy bar that’s big on flavor and texture. The salty crunch of the nuts combines well with the chewy tartness of the cranberries for a remarkable experience. As for the wolf-themed wrapper, it delivers knowledge about the gray wolves and what can be done to help protect them.
Mint and chocolate have been a popular combination for decades, and this blend pairs natural, organic crème de menthe with organic dark chocolate. The wrapper is filled information about the rainforests, how important they are to the world, and what kind of conservation efforts are being taken right now to help save them.

Smooth and delicious
AMAZING DARK CHOCOLATE. Seriously. I love this stuff. I'm a pescetarian but my mom who is an omnivore had a hard time believing that this was vegan. It's just SO good!
Mm mmmm good
Smooth, creamy, delicious!
Good dark chocolate
First of all I have to say I'm not a big dark chocolate fan. I prefer milk chocolate. However, this had pretty good reviews and I wanted to try some chocolate from Thrive so I ordered it. It was a little bitter and dry for my taste but I still ended up eating the whole bar. I think it would be great for using in baking as well. If you're a dark chocolate fan then give this a try.
The darker the better
Some people think that dark chocolate has a bitter taste, and it might when you first start eating it. However, it's delicious and good for you and you'll soon find you love that bitter goodness.
Delicious chocolate for a good cause. Eat it!
Better than milk chocolate
Endangered Species is one of the best dark chocolate bar brands out there. They make great, tasty chocolate bars that will have you craving more.
I don't just eat these as candy bars. I break them up to make chocolate chunk cookies, and even melt them down or other delicious desserts!

Delicious for a Worthy Cause
I'll admit it: I'm in love with chocolate. I can't live without it! I read where chocolate, especially the dark chocolate, is good for you. I subscribe to that knowledge every day! The best dark chocolate I've tasted in a long time, is Fair Trade brand. I can't get enough of it. Our local grocer stocks only a few Fair Trade chocolate bars, I feel bad purchasing all of them at one time. I not only enjoy the chocolate, I like knowing my purchase goes far beyond the makers.
When I discovered Thrive, I was doing a happy dance! I can order my beloved chocolate bars online. The price alone is worth the membership, but the added bonus is no cashier gives me a look to cause guilt at emptying the shelves.

Good as a Switch from Milk Chocolate
This is some fantastic dark chocolate. After finding out that dark chocolate has healthier attributes than milk chocolate, I decided to switch over. I first tried a 90% dark chocolate bar, and ick! I then tried this bar. It has enough dark chocolate that I feel much better about eating it while it wasn't too much of a "shock" compared to my regular milk chocolate. It does have a bit more of a bitter and less sweet taste than standard milk chocolate, but it's still totally palatable and fulfills my chocolate craving. I'm definitely happy eating this healthier option.

Good for dark chocolate
While I am not a huge fan of dark chocolate I have been trying to eat it a lot more since it has more health properties than regular milk chocolate. As far as dark chocolate goes, this is one of my favorite brands.
Not only does their stuff taste good, but they also do good! I love reading the animal info on their packaging. I wish that dark chocolate didn't have that bitter taste though...
Good chocolate, great purpose
I've tried lots of dark chocolate, from Nestle to Ritter Sport, and the quality is all over the place. I found these online and gave it a shot because the price was really good. I must say that it's good chocolate, though some bites were grittier than others. Wonderful flavor, great aftertaste.
It's almost like eating baking chocolate, and you can actually use it in baking recipes like shaving it into cookie dough. But what I love most about Endangered Species, is they have a conscience. I l love the information they put on each wrapper about chimpanzees and how we need to protect them. It's worth buying just for what they're doing to help those animals.
- Casey Brill
Good but slightly too dry
Dark chocolate is more bitter I know, but this is more than usual, and it's good but maybe not what I was expecting. I think it was dry is the problem, and very hard to chew. But the flavor is not bad, just a bit too bitter on the tongue.
I also tried the one with 88 percent cocoa, and found it had a bigger taste, less dry and more what I want in the chocolate, so maybe it's just about the cocoa?
- Carla Bono
Paleo friendly chocolate!
Wow, I'd pretty much given up on chocolate when I went on the paleo diet. I'm in decent shape, and I want to be in tremendous shape, and paleo's helping me get there. But I also love chocolate, especially the dark kind,s o giving it up was hard.
But then I realized that I can still eat dark chocolate if it's made with 70% cocoa. This chocolate is at 72, and it's really good. And I love that you can taste the cocoa in every bite. It's not very sweet at all, because the more cocoa you have in the chocolate, the less sugar, but I love these bars and won't go back to any other brand.

Dark and Divine
Well I'm a chocolate addict, I admit, so this is from someone who's already on the bandwagon when it comes to dark chocolate. I've been a huge Ritter Sport fan, but then I went off and tried this one because I liked their social consciousness regarding saving endangered chimpanzees.
The chocolate is divine. It's smooth, creamy and has that great blend of bitter and sweet that makes dark chocolate oh so good. It's also healthier than milk chocolate, so I don't feel as guilty when I eat half the bar in one sitting.
- Camille Beck
Endangered Species chocolate bars are the best
I love chocolate and I love that some of the money spend on these chocolate bars goes back to the animals. I love the animals too. Dark chocolate is my #1 choice in chocolates, so when I tried this bar the first time I was in love.
It has a rich, deep flavor. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone that isn't a fan of dark chocolate.
I also love the info on the animals they include with their bars. Tasty and educational!
I recently switched from the typical milk chocolate bars to dark chocolate, due to concerns about sugar, and the health benefits of dark. I tried a few different ones but I really like this percentage. The bar is creamy and delicious, and I love knowing that a part of my purchase is donated to saving endangered species.
