We have big news! The farmers in this photo, along with our team, are 2019 Academy of Chocolate Winners for our Peppermint Dark Chocolate Bar!!! This smooth bar is brisk, cool and made with direct trade cocoa beans. Does this picture look familiar? It’s the exact photo (taken by Shawn Askinosie in 2016) that graces the front of the winning bar’s package, featuring our lead farmer partner in Mababu, Tanzania, Mama Mpoki, and her family. Next month, @shawnaskinosie & @lawrenaskinosie will be traveling to remote southwestern Tanzania to work with Mama Mpoki and the rest of our farmer partners, and now we can’t wait to celebrate this prestigious award with them too!

A refreshing Raspberry Pomegranate Cocoa Nib Smoothie is the perfect way to balance the indulgences from yesterday’s celebrations (if you’re like us anyway😉) We combined our crunchy, #singleorigin, antioxidant-packed #askinosie nibs with frozen raspberries, pomegranate juice + a splash of oat milk then blended for a simple & healthy berry supercharger smoothie. Top with a few fresh sprigs of mint for even more green goodness, and feel good about this no sugar-added snack. #askinosierecipes #smoothie #smoothierecipes #plantbased #vegan #veganrecipes

We’re having a blast hosting twenty middle schoolers for our @officialsps x Chocolate University summer school program! These bright students have been learning about the small-batch chocolate production process. On the agenda? Making truffles! But that’s not all-- they’re also creating a marketing plan for their Direct Trade Truffles and even designing packaging! Our entire team has been helping out, and we have to say: we’re feeling pretty great about the future of our communities knowing these inspiring young people are our future leaders. #askinosie #chocolateuniversity #ExploreSPS
