One of the best things about blogging is when you check your emails and find that someone has asked you if you’d like to eat lots of chocolate…for FREE! Well…who am I to say no? So as you can imagine, I was absolutely delighted to get sent some samples from Ombar recently.
Ombar are a range of raw, dairy free chocolate bars that also happen to be free from refined sugars too. There are eight flavours:
Strawberries & Cream
Cranberry & Mandarin
Lemon & Green Tea
I was lucky enough to receive all but three of the flavours to review for you all! I’ll start off by saying that whilst I am a chocolate fiend, I am a little bit scared of raw chocolate. Mostly because all of my experiences of it have been terrible…until now!
I tried the Coco Mylk first as I was really eager to see just how ‘milky’ this bar would be. I loved it. It was incredibly creamy, sweet and coconut is always a winner for me. The Coconut 60% also had that great flavour but obviously with a bit more richness coming from the dark chocolate.
The Strawberries & Cream was probably my favourite out of the lot. It was smooth, creamy cut with the sharp taste of the strawberry pieces hidden away inside. I didn’t expect the strawberry flavour to be so strong, which was a really nice surprise.
The Goji Berry was my least favourite, but I think that’s mostly down to me not particularly liking goji berries! Unlike the sweetness of the strawberries, I found the fruitiness in this bar a little too bitter for my liking. The Dark 72% was incredibly rich, decadent and a little bit earthy. If you’re a dark chocolate fan, this bar will definitely be for you!
I’ve got to say I was a bit taken aback by Ombar, I never expected to enjoy raw chocolate as much as this and I’m really happy that I’ve finally found a brand that I love! I will definitely be keeping my eye out for the Coco Mylk and Strawberries & Cream!
Ombar can be found in most health food shops or you can get hold of some bars online. Check them out!
