Where to find Askinosie chocolate in Sacramento

shellsbutt Sep 5, 2010 09:46 PM

Hello, I was reading a blog post by David Lebovitz the other day and he mentioned trying Askinosie chocolate hazelnut spread. It sounds delicious and I was wondering if anyone here had heard of this product or where to get it locally. I did look up their website, they're based in Springfield, Missouri and they do ship. Has anyone seen it at Whole Foods or some other specialty shop? Thanks.

    try one of the Italian Delis in Sac for Barrati & Milano chocolate hazelnut spread. It's darned good--leaves you laughing at Nutella.

    Maybe Italian Importing on J street?

      I haven't tried the hazelnut spread, but the Askinosie chocolate bars are incredible! Every year I get a box of these bars from my brother for Christmas. I've tried all the variations of the dark chocolate bars. They are a "single source" chocolate...all the beans in each bar come from one farmer. Super dark and rich, super tasty! I started buying them to give as hostess gifts when I go to friends' for dinner. You can order directly from their website (askinosie.com) if you can't find what you want nearby.
