There are few things better these days than an indulgence that also helps the environment, since luxury has been getting such a bad rap lately in that department. But Original Beans Inc. out of San Francisco prides itself on not only super premium chocolate creations, but also on serious eco-responsibility. Started by chocolatier Lesal Ruskey, Original Beans has been making headlines lately for their ultra-decadent chocolate bars that cost a steep $13 for just 3 1/2 ounces. Is the indulgence worth the price tag? Can't say that I know personally, but I imagine it's pretty tasty (plus the promise of a tree planted for every purchase helps defray the spending guilt).
