KLADO creates artisan Brazilian inspired truffles, Brigadeiros (Bri.ga.DAY.ros) infused with the spirit of travel. KLADO was founded by a husband and wife duo, Jesse & Jen, in 2019 after Jen made a batch of her childhood dessert, brigadeiros, for Jesse after forgetting to buy him a birthday cake. They’ve since expanded their e-commerce business to micro-retail, transforming a former ATM space in Jersey City into KLADO’s first brick-and-mortar, that opened in September of 2020.
KLADO and its founders were also the feature of a docuseries on Discovery Channel, chronicling Jen’s journey from leaving corporate America to creating and growing KLADO. Here at KLADO, we’re constantly looking to push the flavor boundaries, innovate through new product offerings (i.e. the recent launch of Brigato – Brigadeiro Gelato), inspire people to dream, travel and taste the world’s exciting culinary adventures.
KLADO is more than just a dessert company, it’s also an acronym for our motto “Keep Loving Adventure through Dessert and Originality.”
