Does anyone know where I can find Askinosie chocolate in the Bay Area? I read in one post that it was sold at Bittersweet Cafe on Fillmore. Anywhere else, including East and North Bay? TIA

    I believe there's a Bittersweet Cafe in Oakland too.

      Bi-rite carries it, though the last time I was there, they only had white chocolate and one South American variety of dark. My sister found a bar of Askinosie made with cacao from Davao, Philippines--a source unique to Askinosie. It was delicious, and really did have the particular chocolate notes and aromas I remembered. Unfortunately, it was out of stock. (But now that you've reminded me, I'll call Bi-Rite to see if it's back.)

        Just called Bi-Rite. They have all 4 kinds of Askinosie in stock right now.

          Askinosie Chocolate can also be found at--
          Fog City News
          Chocolate Covered
          Cocoa Bella
          The Candy Store
          Alegio (Berkley)

          Of course, it is a great idea to call first to make sure they have what you want.
