Davao chocolate: who knew?
Posted on

Pardon my ignorance, I didn’t know Davao was a source of good chocolate.
I came across these while Googling unique chocolate packaging (don’t ask).
Aren’t these cool though? These are Askinosie chocolate bars from a small batch bean-to-bar chocolate maker based in Springfield, Missouri.

Founded in 2007 by former criminal defense lawyer Shawn Askinosie, the company produces single-origin dark chocolate, dark milk chocolate, and white chocolate from Soconusco, Mexico; San Jose Del Tambo, Ecuador; and Davao, the Philippines.
Shawn Askinosie travels to these countries to source the cocoa beans used to make chocolate.
