As part of the ongoing mission to delight chocophiles the world over, Askinosie Chocolate (http://www.askinosie.com) introduces its delectable dark chocolate in new forms for sipping, baking, tasting, and treating. Specializing in bean to bar premium dark chocolate, Askinosie Chocolate goes beyond the bar to introduce Single Origin Sipping Chocolate, Single Origin Natural Cocoa Powder, the C-Ration™- Month's Supply of Chocolate, and the Chalk-late Box™.
From the rich flavors to the unique packaging, the new delights from Askinosie Chocolate continue to deliver an experience for all of the senses. Askinosie Chocolate Sipping Chocolate is made with real morsels of single origin dark chocolate and is available in two varieties--70% San Jose Del Tambo and 75% Soconusco. It needs only to be combined with milk to provide a warm, indulgent treat. The authentic Single Origin Natural Cocoa Powder is a unique product to American chocolate makers as Askinosie Chocolate is the only small-batch maker in the U.S. to manufacturer it. Made right in their factory from the same beans used to make the San Jose Del Tambo dark chocolate, it is unsweetened, non-alkalized and perfect for baking.
The new C-Ration™-Month's Supply of Chocolate is another way Askinosie Chocolate is delighting the senses. According to Dr. Norman Shealy, one of the world's leading experts in pain management, "Pure dark chocolate has more bliss and health benefits per ounce than any other food. A serving a day beats apples and broccoli. A day without dark chocolate is a day of lost bliss." The C-Ration™ makes it easy to take Dr. Shealy's advice. It contains a ration (three-7 gram bars) of dark chocolate for every day of the month, plus four extra rations for emergencies. If that isn't enough, Askinosie Chocolate presents the new Chalk-late Box™, containing four Single Origin Chocolate Bars. The Chalk-late Box™ comes with chalk and a blank chalkboard top creating a unique way to personalize a gift of bliss for Valentine's Day or any day in need of chocolate.
Askinosie Chocolate, a small batch chocolate manufacturer located in Springfield, Missouri, sources 100% of their beans directly from the farmers. Shawn Askinosie, founder and chocolate maker, shifted his focus after 19 years as a criminal defense lawyer. In search of re-wirement outside the courtroom, Shawn began baking. His obsession with cupcakes turned into a passion for making chocolate from scratch. Now Shawn travels to regions of Mexico and Ecuador to work directly with the farmers and source cocoa beans for his chocolate. This allows the chocolate to be traced to the source and labeled Authentic Single Origin Chocolate. It also enables Shawn to profit share with the farmers, giving them a Stake In the Outcome™. Askinosie Chocolate exists to create great tasting chocolate made by people who love the noble craft. Their intention is not to win "the best chocolate in the world" award. But they do aim to be the best little chocolate factory in the world. For more information, or to order visit http://www.askinosie.com.
