Endangered Species Milk Chocolate with Coconut & Macadamia Nuts

Endangered_species_coconut

The Endangered Species Milk Chocolate with Coconut & Macadamia Nuts is a nice take on the coconut/chocolate combo of which I am a big fan.  As with the other Endangered Species bar I tried, the chocolate is a tad grainy, but it works better with this bar that already has a texture due to the added coconut and Macadamia nuts.  As you can see from the photo, the tempering was a bit off on this bar, but it was well within its sell by date and the taste was not affected.

The chocolate here is 52% (cocoa content) and is sweet, but not overly sweet.  In fact, it starts out sweet and milky, but then becomes a bit dry and almost gummy.  I love the lingering flavors of butter and coffee.  All in all, I like this bar -- a grown up version of the chocolate/coconut combo. 

The wrapper indicates that the cocoa in these bars is 100% ethically traded and 10% of net profits are donated to "help support species, habitat and humanity."  I purchased it at a little candy shop in a nearby town, but these bars are widely available these days.

Great blog! I am a big fan of coconut and chocolate together. Thanks for the tip.

I've been using organic baking chocolate to bake years. I am a big fan of Endangered Species Chocolate. I like the fact that 10% of their net profits are donated to help endangered species, habitats and humanity.

My daughter's favorite endangered species chocolate bar is the smoother milk chocolate. My personal favorite is the dark chocolate with forest mints.

hmmm... i don't think these chocolate are sold in the u.s., where are these chocolate sold at?
