Ombar Organic Raw Chocolate Review | Acai & Blueberry
I take back what I said about their strawberries and cream bar. This flavour is now my favourite! I keep trying so many delicious dark and raw chocolates recently, I'll never need to reach for a standard chocolate bar again! I also can't believe I never used to like dark chocolate. I must have been crazy as it's actually really delicious and even more chocolatey than milk choc.
This bar has the tasty richness and depth of quality dark chocolate, but is also mixed with fruity intense berry powders. The berries compliment the dark chocolate flavour perfectly. I've had two pieces today and I'm struggling to keep myself away from my kitchen cupboard. Please, please Ombar - double (at least) the size of these bars!!
Such a delicious, more guilt free chocolate. More guilt free than your standard choccie bar as these are made from antioxidant rich raw cacao. Coconut sugar is used rather than refined sugar. The coconut sugar contains some nutrients, compared to none in refined sugar. It also has a lower GI so is more body friendly. It's not a perfect sugar (it is still sugar after all), but I think it's a better choice than refined sugar if consumed occasionally. The blueberries and acai berry powder do provide 'an intense berry blast' and are also well known superfood themselves.
I've mentioned in a lot of posts the great antioxidant quality of dark chocolate, but did you know it also contains some great vitamins and minerals? Dark chocolate contains iron, magnesium, manganese, copper, zinc, B vitamins and vitamin K to name a few! Best get munching!
Have you tried anything from the Ombar range?
