It is SO impressive what they do with 16 employees. They ship all over the country. The quality and processes they use are really something. The way they mix fruits and nuts in with the chocolate i...s amazing. They give lots of samples so you can savor the different mixtures. If you have an opportunity to go there, do. They have tours on Saturday’s. We are actually going to try to get back over there to do the tour. See More

I received a couple Askinosie chocolate bars for Christmas from my chocoholic friend. She loves their chocolate and shared her love with me. I am so thankful she did! It is some of the best chocolate ...I've ever tasted! I love everything about this company from their packaging to their belief in community and relationships with source partners. See More

What a fun way to spend an hour.... touring a chocolate factory! I have to be honest, I don’t like chocolate. Hearing the story of the partnerships with the bean growers... priceless! Thanks for some culture to Springfield and C Street See More

Lauren is the best! I think I tried every kind of chocolate! She had the best descriptions of the chocolate and it’s like she was describing each flavor in real time. Fantastic chocolate!

Pairs well with whiskey! �� Had this fine chocolate that was aged 2 years in whiskey barrels during an event at Firestone & Robertson Distillery. With Valentine's day around the corner a supply was purchased.

A friend gifted me their single origin 4-bar pack. I’m delirious! The flavors, the purity and love that goes into the making and packaging is impressive. W O W!

What a great find. The award winning 62% Dark Milk Chocolate + Fleur De Sel and Tableya are the best! A must try!

Love this company! It has heart, passion, and most of all delicious, good-for-your-soul chocolate. No other chocolate even comes close!

Enjoyed the Mababu Tanzania 72% dark chocolate bar. Beautiful packaging using simple graphics and elegant wax-like dark brown paper. Confident combination of pastel colors. I selected the chocolate ba...r by its cover, thinking (as I do with wine and perfumes) that if the packaging conveys unobtrusive high-quality, the inside content must covey the same concern and spirit of excellence.

We enjoyed tasting the samples and came home with several bars. We can't wait to do a tour of the factory!

I was visiting my boyfriend in Missouri this past week and venturing to Askinosie was a must since he had been sending me samples of their bars over the course of 6-8 weeks. The last batch contained t...he most diabolical bar of chocolate I had ever tasted: their seasonal gingerbread dark chocolate bar. Upon entering the store, my bf and I went up to (whom I later discovered was) Mr. Askinosie and inquired about this incredible bar. He said they had sold out but would hopefully have more the following week. That would be easy for a local but I am from the West Coast. I did a little shopping and, of course, discovered more mouth-watering bars. After paying, Mr. Askinosie handed me my little bag of chocolate and said "there's something extra in there for you; make sure you share." I smiled, thanked him, and left. I looked in the bag and it was a half-bar of the limited edition gingerbread chocolate! This man made my day!!! Not only is their chocolate thoughtfully crafted and delicious but their customer service is heart-warming. Thank you, Askinosie! See More

Great chocolate, ethically made in small-town America. And I hear they treat their employees great.

I can't offer enough praise about Askinosie Chocolate. Every one of their bars is a sacred gift and epitomize cacao's true potential. Their s'mores bark is beyond delicious. Chocolate with a social co...nscience and a moral compass. All it takes is one taste and you'll know you're not in Kansas anymore. You're in Springfield, MO, and that means some of the best artisan chocolate in the world. See More

A Christmas Carol

Step into Askinosie Chocolate this Christmas season. Leave behind the hustle and bustle. Be enveloped in not only the aroma of chocolate (!), but the true spirit of this special Advent time.
Shawn Askinosie has crafted world-class chocolate and a world-class view. The cocoa beans are direct sourced from sustainable farms in the Philippines, Equador, Tanzania. The farmers' images are on the packaging that you purchase. You may also purchase Tableya and rice. 100% of the profits go back to the communities from which they were sourced!
What better words than Charles Dickens' " Mankind was my business"?
