Like kids in a candy store, SCCA members who embarked on a tour of the K’ul Chocolate production facility and retail store on October 21st were all smiles in anticipation. The tour and the chocolate energy bar samples didn’t disappoint. The owner of K’ul Chocolate, Peter Kelsey, conducted the tour with support from his wife, Elena Kelsey, and Sales Manager Jane Mocchia.

Kelsey and his team at K’ul Chocolate are continually experimenting with new flavors and ingredients, including dried raspberries and blueberries, puffed quinoa and herbs known for their medicinal qualities.

Many thanks to K’ul Chocolate, a new SCCA member this year, for opening up their factory and shop to other members of the business and civic community.
