Rescue Chocolate is not only organic, vegan, fair-traded and certified kosher — all the things conscious shoppers want in their treats — but it’s delicious and the company gives 100% of the net profits to animal rescue groups around the U.S.! Each flavor represents a different rescue issue, and the chocolate bar names are creative: Fosteriffic Peppermint, educating people about the need for pet foster homes, and Mission Feral Fig, highlighting that feral cats need a humane solution, for example.
Within the eco-friendly packaging you’ll find some crafty snacks. The Mission Feral Fig bar has big beautifully visible pieces of almonds and dried figs. Since I haven’t been eating chocolate much lately, I definitely got a little buzz off the 66% dark chocolate. Rescue Chocolate can cater baby showers, weddings or other events.

Sarah Gross, the founder of Rescue Chocolate, is also actively planning events such as the New York City Vegetarian Food Festival to be held March 1-2 of 2014. Last year over 6,000 people attended and they hope for an even larger turnout this time in the city that doesn’t sleep.
