We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. It is a must see in Springfield. The direct trade with the cocoa bean growers is a very exciting concept. The chocolate delicious and couldn’t be more pure. We will be ordering more online.
It was raining the day we went - me and my two teens. We leapt inside and were immediately greeted by the amazing smell of the place. The "tour" as full as it was spring break. We donned out hairnets and the guide began his...More
Askinosie Chocolate Company is small but worth the visit. The staff is knowledgeable about the different chocolates. Anytime I have visited they always have something new to try.

I love quality chocolate, and my husband and I went on the $10 tour on Thursdays, and it was fascinating! The guide tells you about how chocolate is farmed, prepared, and made into chocolate bars. It’s all fair trade and they have several partners around...More
With a group we "toured" the "factory". This is a very small building for what they accomplish and we learned a great deal. We were all very impressed with the social responsibility that appears to be foremost in the business plan - from educating high...More
If you think paying over $100 for a gift box full of chocolate is expensive, you haven't tried Askinosie Chocolate. And you really should.
Start small if you have to. The chocolate bars are exquisitely crafted, with blends, single-source chocolate, and flavors and other ingredients...More
