The only bean-to-bar chocolate makers coming out of Iceland are the incredible Omnom Chocolate. They just opened their brand new flagship store in Reykjavík, and I’m dying to fly out for a visit.

I’m in love with their signature wolf logo as the chosen animal art for this bar. Wolves, the orangish yellow color, geometric shapes, origami…these are a few of my favorite things. Oh, and dark chocolate.

This bar surprised me. I was expecting the usual Madagascar tang with a burst of red berries and citrus, but instead I keep coming back to apricot, honeysuckle, and something new I just can’t put my finger on. Is this undisclosed flavor the Omnom signature taste? I’ll have to try their full line to find out. The accustomed bright red fruit is in there somewhere, but gentle and buried, allowing for more unusual flavors to take focus.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Another noticeable and pleasing difference with this bar is the lack of pain in my mouth after a Madagascar chocolate binge. No sour jaw, no tongue pain, no raw Captain Crunch palate. Don’t get me wrong, there is plenty of divine, mouth-watering flavor in this bar. I quite like it the way it is.
