Tart & Tangy, Silky & Sweet. It’s our BRAND NEW Dark Chocolate + Red Raspberry CollaBARation™ Bar, made in partnership with @americanspoon. We blend our 54% Ecuador dark chocolate (made w/ cocoa beans we source directly from farmers in San Jose Del Tambo) with organic red raspberries. It tastes like bright raspberry jam, pie crust, and a hint of caramel. We’re declaring it the official chocolate bar of Summer. Get it now at askinosie.com and soon at select #askinosie retailers nationwide.
You scream, we all scream for @jenisicecreams! Check out this Green Mint Chip made with real morsels of our own single origin #DirectTrade San Jose Del Tambo, Ecuador 70% Dark Chocolate! Fun fact: the cool minty-green hue is from spirulina leaves and we think that’s pretty neat.
It’s an honor for us to work with some seriously awesome moms and mother-figures, both at our factory and in our cocoa origin countries. Pictured here is Mama Mpoki, our lead cocoa farmer in Mababu, Tanzania, with her beautiful family. We’re inspired by her passion for cultivating high-quality cocoa and her tireless drive to empower her community, all while raising a family. To all the moms, we humbly salute you.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! We’re so grateful to the teachers in our community, specifically the amazing elementary, middle, and high school instructors who participate in our #ChocolateUniversity program. We don’t know where the world would be without the tireless, selfless work of devoted teachers, and we don’t wanna know. So thank you for everything you do, teachers! P.S. Looking for a teacher gift for the end of the school year? Our Limited Edition S’more Bark is a great reminder that summer is just a few short weeks away!
