A while back we wrote about Chocolate, the misunderstood health food and listed multiple reasons why you shouldn't put down that chocolate bar. I'm happy to say, I'm still a chocoholic and have recently been introduced to a new chocolate company. No, I don't get any payback for talking about them, I simply love chocolate so I'm happy to spread the word.
Here's the story. I have a friend who also loves chocolate. She recently gave me some chocolate candy she had ordered from various countries. The stuff was delicious. It was rich dark, melt in your mouth yummy chocolate. I wanted more.....
When I asked about where she was getting it she introduced me to a company that imports chocolate directly from the farmers who grow it. Its called Askinosie Chocolate and the company is based in Springfield, MO. They import healthy dark chocolates from Costa Rica, Mexico, Ecuador, and other countries. Its a pretty cool concept. According to the web site, they take the middle out of the middle man. They connect the farmers who grow the chocolate and do the labor with people like me, people who love chocolate. It made me feel good to eat it. Not only was I enjoying my favorite treat, but I was supporting the people who grew it.
If you're a chocolate lover, you might check Askinosie Chocolate out. The chocolate is high quality and you'll feel like you did a good deed. Oh, and remember, chocolate is still a health food. 🙂
