Last New Year’s Eve, Mike Arcuri made some pretty normal resolutions: exercise more, eat healthier, and take more vitamins. And, he’s kept those resolutions. Only, he tweaked them a little.
“What I found is a couple months went by and I wasn’t taking the vitamins. And I thought, that’s the easiest one on the list!” Arcuri laughed. “Why am I not doing that?” So, Arcuri found a way to combine a healthy habit with something he loves: chocolate. And voila! Vibrant Chocolate was born.
Arcuri’s kitchen is just off NW Market St. in Ballard. He’s been in business just five weeks, and has already secured a couple events to showcase his gourmet goodies. Arcuri says he hopes to be at the Ballard Sunday Market sometime soon. “What we want to do is help people stick to a schedule and replace something that’s not very pleasant with something that’s both indulgent and a ritual that’s good for your health,” Arcuri explained.
Vibrant Chocolate offers several different options, from the omega-3-infused chocolate salted caramel named “Caramel Snap Delight” to vitamin-D-infused “Peanut Butter Sunshine.”
