Askinosie Chocolate Factory

PLEASE NOTE: Our public & private factory tours are currently postponed, but we plan to resume them in November, 2021. We’ve been working hard to bring tours back in a way that is both safe and fun and look forward to sharing more information soon. In the meantime, we’re pleased to welcome visitors to our factory storefront where you can shop, sample, and even watch some of our chocolate-making since our factory is open-concept. We hope you’ll stop by and see us! Sign up for our newsletter located below in the righthand corner of our website footer and follow us on social media to be the first to know when our tours return.  

Here's something not-so-secret: Our chocolate tastes even better once you’ve toured our small factory on Commercial Street in Springfield, MO. We love to welcome visitors from near and far to learn all about how and why we make chocolate, and of course nibble on some samples. ________________________________________________________________________________________________

Our tours offer a behind-the-scenes look into what it takes to craft bean to bar chocolate, that’s made by-hand from rare cocoa beans we source directly from farmers across the globe.

Our informative tour will take you around the factory, allowing you a peek inside the secretive world of chocolate making. We’ll provide a concise education on how we make our small batch chocolate, including our ingredients and the various machines we use. We’ll also discuss our Direct Trade practices, our community development work, Chocolate University, and even delve deep into each of our origins. And don’t fret, because we provide plenty of tasty samples at various stages of our process throughout the tour. Tours last approximately 45 minutes and you are welcome to stay afterwards and shop at your leisure in our factory storefront, with your 10% tour discount.

Tickets cost $5.00 for adults and $4.00 for children and students. Keep in mind that when you pay for your tour you are supporting Chocolate University—100% of your ticket price supports Chocolate University.
