Last week, I wrote about Rescue Chocolate, an impressive little company in Brooklyn that donates 100 percent of the net profits to animal rescue organizations all over the country. Now that I've tried each of the chocolates, here are the results of my 5-star, at-home taste test! All but one of the selections were sensational, and we're going to try that one again.

$6 for 2 hearts, 1 oz. The hearts are smaller than I expected, but what they lack in size, they make up for in lusciousness.

$5—1 bar, 2.2 oz. Loved this! Just the right amount of mint & a delicate crunchy texture.
Bow Wow Bon Bons ★ ★
$7—1 box of 4 square bon bons, 1.1 oz. Again, these are small, but not unreasonable for boutique chocolates, and the presentation is beautiful. Each little square has its own artful design. There are 4 flavors: salted peanut, peanut butter & jelly, cinnamon, and 70% dark chocolate. I don't know if it was just our box or our tastebuds, but the flavor was off. 3 of the 4 did not hit the mark. Not sure what the problem was, but I'm going to ask my son to buy a box the next time he's in the neighborhood and see what he thinks.
The Fix ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
$5—1 bar, 2.2 oz. 66% pure dark chocolate. What more do I have to say? Guaranteed to satisfy your chocolate craving.

$5—1 bar, 2.2 oz. I really liked the texture of this one. It is the same rich dark chocolate found in the other bars with chunks of almond and dried fig. Really interesting & different! Neat combination of flavors.
Peanut Butter Pit Bull ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
$5—1 bar, 2.2 oz. Ooo, yum! This seemed like a lighter dark chocoate with a delectable crispy peanut butter interior. Melts in your mouth.
Pick Me! Pepper ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
$5—1 bar, 2.2 oz. Dark chocolate with Pasilla & Mulato chile peppers (like pablanos), spices & fleur de sel. You can really taste the pepper in this sublime combination. Super good for the enlightened chocolate palette.
