Chocolate University is a neighborhood and global outreach initiative of Askinosie Chocolate and The Askinosie Foundation.

“You’ll never regret being kind” has been one of my favorite phrases for a few years now. It’s a great saying when you’re happy and feel like being nice, but the phrase is harder to love when you don’t really feel like being kind. But when you really think about it, being kind is always worth it. It’s just better to be the bigger person.
