You can keep your candy bars, sugary lollies, and ice cream. But chocolate, let’s talk. Actually, I need to be more specific—dark chocolate. And I have a new favorite. I recently came across this chocolate and hazelnut spread, Hey, Hey Hazelnut, by Askinosie, and can vouch that it…is…delicious. I checked out the Web site and have instantly become an even bigger fan. Founder Shawn Askinosie worked as a criminal defense attorney for almost two decades before becoming a chocolate maker. His passion for his new business and philanthropy is so inspiring. He works directly with the cacao farmers (who are celebrated on some of the packaging) in various regions, and all ingredients are fully traceable. Best-quality ingredients, rich, intense flavor, and giving back to the community. I am sold. Now, what to try next!
