Not that #TeamCoco ever need a reason to sample chocolate, but this little beauty of a chocolate brand Ombar, landed on our doorstep and it brought a nice little natural and organic story with it.
“In a world dominated by roasted chocolate, not all bars are created equal. We choose raw because it is naturally better.” Richard Turner, Founder of Ombar.
What makes Ombar so special?
Made with raw, organic Ecuadorian cacao, unrefined coconut sugar and real juicy fruits, every Ombar is packed full of goodness and deliciousness. Ombar don’t use gluten, dairy or refined sugar in their bars, and keeping the cacao raw helps to preserve the naturally occurring antioxidants and flavanols, which help you to feel good.
The Ombar range comprises nine delicious varieties (35g size), meaning that there is a bar to suit every taste. They include:
90% Raw Cacao – a rich and intense bar with 90% cocoa solids, this bar is ideal for real chocolate lovers.
72% Raw Cacao – a bar for the real chocolate connoisseurs, the 72% cocoa solids in this dark, full-bodied chocolate bar are smooth, yet not too intense.
Coco Mylk – a creamy, ‘mylk’ chocolate bar with a subtle coco-nutty flavour, this bar is ideal for fans of a sweeter, milk chocolate style bar.
Goji Berry – a delicious ‘superfood’ bar made using freeze-dried Goji berry powder and whole plump gojis, providing a moreish bittersweet flavour.
Coconut 60% – coconut cream is the secret to this bar, combined with caramel tasting coconut sugar for a velvety taste sensation.
Lemon & Green Tea – a daring blend of Matcha green tea and tangy lemon, creates a bold citrus flavour with green tea and cocoa undertones.
Blueberry & Acai – enriched with acai, blueberries and blackcurrants, this bar is a tangy flavour explosion.
Strawberry Mylk – a delicious sweet strawberry flavour combined with coconut cream, perfect to satisfy a sweet tooth.
Cranberry & Mandarin – a perfect balance of tart cranberry with a tangy twist of mandarin for fans of fruity flavours.
There are also a small selection of 70g bars to indulge in, including:
Coco Almond – delicious raw almond pieces encased in Ombar’s indulgent, creamy-tasting 60% raw cacao chocolate.
72% Raw Cacao, and Coco Mylk – both bars are exactly the same recipe as the little 35g bar.
Every ingredient in an Ombar chocolate bar is naturally and organically sourced, for a delicious and ethical chocolate experience. You’ll only find real fruits and berries in the bars, with selected bars containing probiotics to aid gut health. Each bar is dairy and gluten free and suitable for vegans.
