Today, we have news that will please anybody with a sweet tooth, as Endangered Species Chocolate has recently launched its collection of 75% Dark Chocolate Bars and Premium Baking Chips, a combination of authentic dark chocolate and smooth, creamy oat milk without the usual addition of sugars or sweetener substitutes.
“Consumers were telling us they wanted the best of both worlds: a smooth, lower sugar chocolate with the benefits of a higher cocoa percentage and incredible taste,” said Whitney Bembenick, Director of Marketing and Innovation. “Because we only use simple ingredients, no bulking agents or sugar substitutes like stevia—oat milk was the perfect solution to give our dark chocolate lovers the taste profile they expect and the health benefits they want.”
It was the call for a better chocolate that could solve the problem that many chocolate lovers often encounter, taste vs. less sugar, that drove the brand to this tasty new creation according to a company release. The new collection contains half the sugar that most 70 percent dark chocolates do, as well as all of the benefits that higher cocoa products are known for.
“As a dietitian who believes that eating healthy can and should taste good, I love that Endangered Species Chocolate has created a lower sugar, dairy-free chocolate option that doesn't sacrifice taste, thanks to smooth and creamy oat milk,” said Rachael Hartley, RD, LD, Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor. “As I always remind my clients, depriving yourself isn't helpful, so eat the foods you enjoy, but that doesn’t mean you have to ignore nutrition. Having a non-dairy, alternatively better chocolate option with the benefits of dark chocolate and no artificial sweeteners is a winning treat in my book.”
The new oat milk line features 3 bars:
The line also includes Oat Milk + 75% Dark Chocolate Premium Baking Chips for those who like to bake, which provide a smooth and delightful melt of dairy-free chocolate.
Endangered Species’ new line is currently available at Whole Foods Market and Fresh Thyme Market, as well as online, and will expand to other retailers this spring.
