Gimme Patric and Askinosie Chocolate NOW!

Now that you've read this week's feature about Patric Chocolate and Askinosie Chocolate, Missouri's two bean-to-bar chocolate makers, you're probably craving a chocolate fix right now. But grabbing a Hershey's from the office vending machine? Wouldn't make you feel unspeakably foolish now that you've read how much better artisan chocolate is?

Read on to find out where you can buy this stuff right here in St. Louis, without having to wait for Patric or Askinosie to ship it to your door. Although that's an option, especially if you seek one of Askinosie's gift boxes (the pinup on the itty Bar Jar is based on a 1973 photo of Shawn Askinosie's wife Caron; no, she was not pleased) or sign up for Patric's Chocolate of the Month club.
