Rescue Chocolate Doesn’t Need any Rescuing
Don’t get me wrong: blueberries are amazing. They’re chock-full of antioxidants and make a great snack, but those same antioxidants can be found in dark chocolate and doesn’t a sweet treat sound a bit more enticing? I had a raging good time sampling Rescue Chocolates’ various candy bars, and not only was it as tasty as a classic Hershey candy, it tastes even sweeter because it’s for a great cause. Rescue Chocolate donates 100% of net profits to animal shelter organizations nationwide. No need to stress about finding Fido a home anymore. Pucker up and devour Rescue Chocolate in seven distinct tastes: Peanut Butter Pit Bull, Pick Me! Pepper, Foster-iffic Peppermint, The Fix, Mission Feral Fig, Fakin’ Bacon, and Forever Mocha.
It’s hard not to compare anything peanut buttery to a Reeses, because let’s face it—they’re delicious. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried the Peanut Butter Pit Bull— the peanut butter and chocolate work in tandem to create the perfect guilty pleasure. And the Foster-iffic Peppermint blow York Patties out of the water. If Christmas had a taste, that would be it. Forever Mocha hired three flavors for the job: coffee, hazelnut, and dark chocolate—man, do they get it done. The bar has just enough crunch while still being velvety. Mission Feral Fig blends figs and nuts with dark chocolate, creating a nuts-in-chocolate delicacy that even a Payday wound envy. I nibbled on these candy bars and thought about the puppy I had growing up. Toby was the light of my life, and I couldn’t imagine him looking for a warm home, away from me.
