Omnom Chocolate

Bean to bar chocolate.  Trendy, not particularly novel.

But Omnom was novel to me for one reason.  It comes from Iceland!  The factory is in Reykjav√≠k, Iceland, and the milk used is Islandic.

I have not been to Iceland, but, a co-worker returned with a selection of chocolates.  Let's just say ... I was impressed!

Who knew they could make good chocolate?

And I like chocolate.
Caramel + Milk.
"Caramel, Fudgy, Rainbow."

The first one I tried was the Caramel + Milk bar, as I was drawn in by the nibs on top.  And the flavor description that promised I'd taste rainbows.

Did I taste rainbows?  Well, no.  But that is ok.

This was a lovely milk chocolate.  Very smooth, subtly sweet from the caramel.  And of course I liked the crunch on top.
Sea Salted Almonds + Milk.
"Almond, Salt, Berry."

This bar was made with beans from Madagascar, in a smooth creamy milk chocolate, with little bits of almond on top.

I'm not generally one for milk chocolates, but this one too was really pleasant, and I appreciated the bit of crunch from the almonds on top.

I didn't taste the "berry", but the almonds were there, and the salt delivered on the finish.  Another nice milk chocolate.
Tanzania 70%.
"Apricot, Raisins, Hazelnut."

Finally, I tried a single origin dark chocolate, from Tanzania.

It was a lovely smooth mid-dark chocolate, nice snap.  Not deep chocolate since it was only 70%, but very enjoyable.

I did taste some "raisin", but not "apricot" or "hazelnut" really.
