New Life-Saving Sweets Arrive in Time for Halloween

Brooklyn, NY, October 28, 2017 --( Bottle-feeding orphaned kittens is the lifesaving issue behind Cappuccino Kitten, the new white chocolate bar recently introduced by Rescue Chocolate.

Animal shelters are often inundated with litters of homeless kittens that are too young to eat on their own. For the very labor-intensive task of bottle-feeding the newborns around the clock, they have to tap their overworked staff members and cajole their tired volunteers.

The Cappuccino Kitten bar will call attention to the constant need for more shelter workers, said Rescue Chocolate founder and CEO Sarah Feoli.

“It’s one of the most powerful acts an ordinary person can perform to actually save little lives,” she said. “I want to just let people know the need is great, and the opportunity is out there.”

While Rescue Chocolate’s products are only for humans to enjoy, each of the 7-year-old company’s chocolate bars and truffle collections calls attention to a different issue within the realm of animal rescue.

For example, Peanut Butter Pit Bull endeavors to rehabilitate the image of a misunderstood dog breed. Foster-iffic Peppermint points out the benefits of fostering a homeless animal even if one can’t ultimately adopt. The Fix emphasizes the importance of spaying and neutering. Mission Feral Fig highlights the humane management of feral cat colonies.

Those bars and four others comprise the company’s dark chocolate line. There is also a roster of three existing white chocolate bars, to which the new cappuccino bar has now been added.

But, Rescue Chocolate’s white chocolate is not the typical dairy-inflected concoction with a pale yellow color. Instead, it uses a mixture of ground ingredients such as chia seeds, brazil nuts, almonds, and cashews to achieve a creamy consistency.

Cappuccino Kitten also contains two shots of espresso plus cocoa nibs for crunch.

“We actually refer to our line as ‘Like White’ because it’s a different color and so much healthier than the usual,” said Feoli. “Everything we make is vegan, fairly traded, organic, and handcrafted. That’s because we want it to be good for the humans, as well as do good for the animals!”

In addition to publicizing animal rescue issues, Rescue Chocolate donates its profits to animal rescue organizations across the country. Feoli’s company also partners with various shelters and non-profits on fundraising events.

Rescue Chocolate’s main charity beneficiary for 2017 is Foster Dogs Inc., a New York-based group. Past beneficiaries have included No Kill Advocacy Center and Petfinder Foundation.
