K’ul Chocolate in Minneapolis

kul 2

*K’ul closed June 2018

This weekend, Chris and I enjoyed brunch at the Seward Pizza Luce and as we were getting in the car to leave, I spied a chocolate store across the street: K’ul Chocolate. We both have a healthy sweet tooth so we headed over to see if they offer vegan chocolate. After finding the Chocolaterian in Madison, I was optimistic that K’ul (pronounced “cool”) might have at least a couple vegan options.

kul 3As luck might have it, they do. In fact, it’s all vegan! It’s also gluten-free and soy-free, and everything is made at their facility.

They had samples out of the Maca & Fruit bar which contains cherries, cranberries, maca, raspberries and pomegranate. Chocolate and berries go so well together and this is just the right blend. The chocolate is creamy and not too sweet but not too bitter, either, like some dark chocolate can be. I honestly wasn’t quite sure of the appropriate way to handle my excitement in finding K’ul.

kul 1After looking at the other varieties, Chris asked me which one I wanted and naturally I replied, “All of them!” Being the awesome person he is, he bought the variety pack which contains 9 bars with 6 different varieties.

kul 5There’s a lot of information about K’ul on the website, and I loved learning that they actually travel to the farms and select their own beans. Owner Peter Kelsey beat cancer and follows the motto “Chocolate is not candy. Chocolate is food.” He even chose K’ul because it’s the Mayan word for “energy.” Click here to learn more.

You can purchase products online, or head to the store (closed Sunday & Monday) to grab some coffee and pick up a bar or two. Enjoy!

*Update 12.18.2015: They now have a fresh chocolate bar where you can customize your own bar! Click here to read about it.
