There’s no question, chocolate is a universal favourite. But there’s much more to the art of good chocolate than the chalky, beige, milk chocolate most of us grew up with. Calgary-based chocolaterie Kin + Pod makes beautiful chocolate that’s ethical and modern. And like anything modern, there’s vegan and gluten-free options in a range of delectable flavours. Hello Toasted Sea Salt Almond Bar! Although there’s something vaguely alien (in a good way) about the packaging, it’s definitely chocolate for humans – and an absolute favourite of ours.
Kin + Pod is not only award-winning, they are also fiercely committed to sustainability and fair-trade. Thanks to the ahh-mazing Geordan Spicer, owner and chocolatier extraordinaire, for chatting with us about these super cool beans and why she’s so into doing good, one delicious bar of chocolate at a time.
