Askinosie makes this white chocolate bar using cacao beans from Davao, Philippines. The cacao butter is pressed at their factory (Askinosie is the only chocolate maker in the US to press its own) and mixed with goat's milk powder.
Flavor Notes: Rich and smooth with hints of¬†cardamom.
Shawn Askinosie, a former defense lawyer in Springfield, Missouri, started Askinosie Chocolate in 2007.
His company rapidly became the highest standard for ethical cacao sourcing and crafting in the United States. Askinosie has been promoting and creating an impressive amount of programs to solidify¬†sustainable and deeply collaborative relationships with the cacao farmers, helping them not only to be an actual financial partner to the company, but also to reshape the economy of their farms and surrounding villages.
Shawn Askinosie travels personally to every meeting with the farmers to ensure a most critical conversation on the development of the farming techniques and to share every aspect of the farm's economical development on the market (all of the bookkeeping is translated in each farm's language by a local translator to maintain the highest level of transparency).¬†
Askinosie Chocolate represents all of the noblest aspects of contemporary bean to bar chocolate crafting in the United States, and it is a constant source of inspiration for new chocolate artisans and supporters (aka chocolate eaters).¬†

This white chocolate is beautiful. It has a nice smooth texture and wonderful flavor much better than the white chocolate you find in the stores. No cows milk is a plus.
