Brooklyn, NY, March 10, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Peanut butter praline adds an unexpected twist to this year’s chocolate Easter eggs from Rescue Chocolate, the vegan food company which donates all profits to animal rescue organizations.
Called The Good Egg, the new product is touted as a dairy-free, peanut butter-filled chocolate egg.
Rescue Chocolate founder Sarah Gross noted that a similar product offering in the past featured a cream-like white filling. “Those were good, but these are even better,” she said. “The peanut butter with chocolate combination is one of the most pleasing tastes out there!”
Joining the eggs in the 2016 Easter line-up are the company’s Make Mine Chocolate Bunnies, a perennial favorite. The name ties into a campaign by the rescue group, House Rabbit Society, to encourage the giving of chocolate bunnies for Easter instead of live rabbits.
According to the group’s website, rabbits are purchased as Easter gifts every year, and huge numbers are then surrendered to animal shelters when the rabbits get older and the excitement of the holiday has worn off. Chocolate rabbits, of course, avoid that problem.
As with all of Rescue Chocolate’s products, the eggs and bunnies are vegan, kosher, GMO-free, gluten-free, and handcrafted in Brooklyn (NY). Additionally, the chocolate is organic and fairly traded.
Also proving popular for Easter gifts this year are the company’s Like White chocolate bars and truffles. The recently introduced Like White line mimics traditional white chocolate while remaining within the vegan niche.
Back on the dark chocolate side, Rescue Chocolate offers seven varieties of bars, two flavors of mini bars, and a gift box of salted caramel truffles. Each flavor is named after an issue important in the realm of animal rescue.
Since its founding in January 2010, Rescue Chocolate has partnered with hundreds of animal rescue organizations on fundraising, including In Defense of Animals, Farm Sanctuary, and local affiliates of the Humane Society. The main beneficiary for this year is the No Kill Advocacy Center.
Products are sold in retail outlets around the country as well as online. For further information, visit www.RescueChocolate.com.
