Endangered Species Intense Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Nibs

The theme of this chocolate bar from Endangered Species is the Bat, perhaps one of the most misunderstood animals in North America. They can eat up to 1200 mosquitoes every hour. One of my fondest memories is sitting and looking up to watch several circling bats around dusktime, catching insects. Again, this is an animal that is declining in numbers due to human encroachment, whether it is through habitat destruction, direct killing, vandalism and disturbance of their mating and hibernation colonies, and the direct effects of the pesticides that are sprayed on insects.

The cacao content of this bar is 75%. The ingredient listing is good, cocoa mass, unbleached water-filtered beet sugar, soy lecithin, natural vanilla and roasted cocoa bean pieces.

How did it taste? Pretty good, the dark chocolate is fairly good, the cacao nibs give it a good interesting crunch (though because of them, I didn't melt the pieces in my mouth, but rather chewed them). My beautiful Bride enjoyed it as well. I would buy this bar again.
