Four new chocolate bars from US-based Endangered Species Chocolate Company were launched last week at the Natural Food Products Expo West in California.
The new chocolate bars are half the size of the company's traditional three-ounce bars, but like their larger parents feature photos and facts about some of the world's most endangered species.
The chocolate bars are called Snow Leopard, Koala, Giraffe and Zebra and are all certified organic. They come in four different flavours: dark chocolate tangerine (Baby Zebra Bar), milk chocolate peanut butter (Baby Giraffe Bar), dark chocolate and cherry (Baby Koala Bar) and milk chocolate mocha (Baby Snow Leopard Bar).
In addition to the four baby bars, the company produces 16 different three-ounce Endangered Species Chocolate Bars featuring endangered animals and habitat. Information regarding each animal is printed on the back and inside of each wrapper, and the company periodically rotates out animals and features new ones on its chocolate bars.
Endangered Species Chocolate bars are made with all natural ingredients and come in milk, dark and white chocolate and a combination of flavours. Bug Bites are small squares of dark and milk chocolate plus collectible cards featuring some of the world's most interesting insects, while Chimp Mints are certified organic dark chocolate and mint squares featuring 40 chimpanzees from the Jane Goodall Gombe Research Centre in Africa.
