My Popple's chocolate bars is my most recent discovery online, where the natural, warm and welcoming tones of their website instantly made me want to explore their products. When the chocolate collection arrived at my door, I was over the moon to find the packaging look and feel just as they did on my screen! That is- very cool, creative and tastefully designed.
The flavour I went for first was always going to be anything peppermint, and I just loved that Mr Popple had a combo of 'mint and lime'! I would've liked for the flavour to be more pronounced, but then again I'm the biggest critic of my mints. So the next bar I decided to sample was 'cherry aid' which surprised even me, because cherry is not something I'd ever liked combined in anything. Until now! What a delicious surprise! It just gave so much depth, flavour and texture to the chocolate, BIG thumbs up!
Euphoric Orange is a delicious bars and like the rest, being packed with superfoods- pretty much a good meal replacement. The chocs are a little grainy, so don't expect a smooth creamy melt, but this is actually a really good thing, I love that for a change. To me it just makes it obvious how much amazing superfood you are having and how close the ingredients are to their natural state, which is so hard to find these days in packaged products, even many raw food brands. I love that the bars include yacon syrup for a sweetener instead of the common agave.
Super fruit was another surprise for me. I would never go for a fruit and nut kind of bar, because I end up picking out all the raisins (just can't do raisins), and to my biggest ever delight- no raisins!! But what there was is a generous selection of the most beautiful dried fruits and berries ever- even inca berries, the taste took me all the way back to Ecuador for a moment... a really really good moment.
