Askinosie (Chocolate Brand)
Askinosie is a microbatch bean-to-bar chocolate maker, based in Springfield, Missouri. Founded in 2005 by Shawn Askinosie, a criminal defence lawyer, the company is ethics-driven in everything it does.
Shawn works closely with cocoa farmers, traveling all over the world to meet them and paying higher than Fair Trade prices for their beans.
Askinosie’s packaging is as distinctive as the chocolate inside. Rustic waxed paper bags, sealed with a string from the sack that the cocoa beans camed in.
