Rogue Chocolatier offers free shipping through January
If you enjoy high-quality chocolate that's made locally, here's your opportunity to stock up on the best of the best. To celebrate winning the Good Food Award, Rogue Chocolatier is offering free shipping on all web orders over $20 for the remainder of January.
The Good Food Awards recognize outstanding American food producers and farmers who support sustainability and social good. Rogue's Sambirano, made with cacao from a single family-owned estate in Madagascar, took the award earlier this month at a ceremony in San Francisco. The bar was up against 180 entries for the chocolate category in a blind taste test by an impressive group of judges.
Rogue Chocolatier's founder and sole employee, Colin Gasko, continues to hone his craft through roasting, grinding, refining, and conching in his Minneapolis workshop. He currently offers four types of chocolate via the web store: Limited Edition Piura 75%, Rio Caribe, Hispaniola, and award-winning Sambirano. The bars cost from $6.99 to $8.99 each. Although they are more expensive than other gourmet chocolate bars, they are quite a bargain when you consider all of Gasko's labor and the quality of the ingredients.
Since Rogue chocolates are difficult to find outside of the Twin Cities, the free shipping offers a nice way for the rest of the country to get to know these gems.
