Did you miss our creamy Dark Chocolate + Peanut Butter Bar? The return of autumn means this much-anticipated bar is officially back in stock and on shelves! Chocolate + peanut butter lovers, eat your heart out.
Tried our newest bar yet? Subtle, ripe creaminess from real Hass avocado. Woody, herbal sweetness from organic rosemary & organic black pepper, it’s our most savory and unique bar! We released our Dark Chocolate + Avocado & Rosemary CollaBARation™ Bar (with @heathceramics) into the wild last week & we can’t wait to hear what you think! #askinosie #beantobar #avocadochocolateisthenewavocadotoast
Out of 1,000 different chocolate bars submitted by over 130 makers from 16 countries (wow!!), we’re proud to announce that we’ve won TWO 2018 International Chocolate Awards!

“What’s it like to write a book with your daughter?” “What is your advice for a new chocolate maker?” Get ready to have all your #MeaningfulWork questions answered as we wrap up our summer book club next week!

We’re hard at work on our newest bar, dropping next week! This smooth and creamy bar is a little savory, a little herbaceous and it’s a CollaBARation™ with a California-based company we admire. Any guesses?
“Why is your chocolate so expensive??” It’s a question we hear sometimes and the answer is: quality/taste and Direct Trade. When you buy one of our bars, you’re hopefully tasting something truly excellent AND contributing to putting more money in cocoa farmers’ pockets because of our bean-buying practices and profit sharing program. Read more from our CMO, Lawren Askinosie, in a recent article on @HuffPost. Link in profile. #askinosie #directtrade #eatgoodchocolate
You guys. We’re pretty excited about our latest partnership with the fine folks at @dogfishhead. A toasty Golden Ale brewed with #askinosie Roasted Cocoa Nibs (AND Cocoa Bean Shells!). It’s rumored to be deep and rich like a coffee stout, but Pilsner-like in color!! Try for yourself on tap at the Rehoboth Brewpub in just a few short weeks. Cheers! #regram
Look at this upcycled succulent baby! What are some of your favorite ways to reuse our packaging? We love this repurposed Malt Ball planter that a creative Askinosie super-fan recently shared with us! Over the years we’ve seen these kraft tins turned into pencil holders and coin banks and our pine gift boxes up-cycled into desk trays and catch-alls. #askinosie #reduce #reuse #recycle
