Octochocolate - RAW Chocolate

Octochocolate reached out to me recently to see if I wanted to try out some of their products... Which for me was a no brainer*. For anyone who knows me well, knows that I am a massive chocolate lover and admittedly have quite a sweet tooth. One of the first things I noticed when I came across Octochocolate was how unbelievably beautiful all the products were. The packaging is also extremely beautiful, you know you could feel confident to give any one of Octochocolate products to a friend or loved one as a gift (Hint: Mother's Day & Easter are coming up soon - thank me later). The second thing that makes these chocolate bars so special, is the fact that they are all raw and are vegan friendly too! Bonus! - I'm not sure about you but I totally interpreted that to mean that these chocolates are good for you?... Okay, so maybe not one of your 5 a day, but they are a heck of a lot better for you than some other chocolates out there.

Now, let's get into the real detail... The taste test!

Dark Chocolate With Goji Berries & Cacao Nibs - Even at 65% this tastes much more like milk chocolate to me, it doesn't have the same rich quality that dark chocolate has (in a nice way). I loved the crunchy texture from the cocao nibs and the bitterness hint you get from those. The goji berries are a welcomed hit of sweetness and a nice chewy texture. Delicious! And just look how beautiful that bar is too!

Dark Chocolate With Almonds, Coffee & Mulberries - This bar has the most amazing rich depth of flavour which is the initial taste you get when taking a bite, but you then get this subtle hit of coffee flavour afterwards which is what makes this flavour so special. Again, I absolutely loved the crunch of the whole almonds and the sweet chewy contrast from the mulberries. This has to be my favourite out of the 3 bars I tasted here and I highly recommend it.

White Coconut Milk - These chocolate bars just fail to disappoint (thankfully) and this one is no exception. It is so creamy, smooth and rich and it also has a subtle hint of the coconut flavour coming through the longer you taste it.

I also sampled their 'Dates Covered In Raw Chocolate' which are delicious and make for a great snack, but I am planning to use these in a recipe soon so check back here again soon for that - you wont want to miss it!
