These will mocha you so happy!
Here's a delicious new way to combine your love of chocolate and coffee. Take your taste buds on a sensorial adventure; crunchy, smooth & creamy with a kick of espresso all in one bite-size treat!
We batch roast whole almonds to crunchy, nutty perfection, then lovingly double dip them in smooth white and then creamy milk chocolate. Then they're dusted with COFFEE SUPREME espresso, for a match made in mocha heaven.
If you haven't tried these then I suggest you rush out and go get some, espcailly if you like mocha flavours. The mix of chocolate and coffee is spot on and just super tasty. My partner and I snuck these when no one was looking and oh my they were goood. My mum knows I have snacks to review and she kept sniffing around waiting for them to be open to dig in. I knew she would enjoy these as she drinks about 5 coffess a day. I told her to come try and she wanted the bag to herself.
I love the re sealable bag, so handy to be able to close the bag up again and save some for later. These for the price are such a treat and would suggest you keep a bag in the pantry at all times, and one in each flavour as they are all so good. The price is good value for money, and you get lots in the bag, its a win win deal.
I wonder what these would taste like in some muffins, like add a couple into the middle of a muffin and as its baking the choclate mocha flavour would melt into the muffin and make it so tasty but also having the almond to bite into would be a real treat as well. These are just fabulous and I can't say this enough, if you haven't yet, go buy some as you will not regret it.
Nom is on to something good here for sure, They take almonds then roast them to be crunchy then double dip them in creamy milk chocolate, and dust it with a Coffee powder over the top. The packaging is color-coordinated with its velvety brown look suiting coffee and chocolate very well. I tore open the bag and peeled the resealable lip to be met with a creamy coffee aroma with a subtle chocolate smell also giving me the impression of a mocha coffee which is my go-to hot drink of choice so I was very pleased. I removed a couple of the almonds and chucked them into my mouth, the first thing that hits is the coffee dusting flavor then the softness of the chocolate, and then a lovely crunch from the almond.
The creamy chocolate flavor lingers the longest and it is smooth and rich which is welcoming. My only gripe I have with these is I'm not a big fan of the thick layer of chocolate but this is just my personal opinion and I prefer the lightly coated almonds much more so if you like more of a coating then these will be perfect for you. The price of $7.00 per 160g bag is reasonable for what you get and the coating is very generous for these.
I recommend these if you like to snack on sweet and savory snacks and want something easy to pack and light to eat. They would be perfect for walks and picnics if you can keep them cool and the kids love them as the coffee flavor isn't dominant and doesn't linger long at all. Personally, I will stick to the skinny dipped almonds just because they are more simplistic and not as sweet but you may like these ones more so give them a shot.
Almonds, double dipped chocolate, and coffee dusting, well sign me up!! I saw these come up for review and thought they sounded absolutely delicious, and spoiler alert - I was not disappointed!! These lovely treats come in a handy resealable bag, so you do not have to eat them all at once, nor have to find another container to put them in for storage.
Chocolate coated almonds are not new, but Nom have changed it up a bit by double dipping, and not in the bad way - first in white chocolate and then milky creamy chocolate before dusting them in expresso ''dust'' to create the chocolate coffee mocha flavour. They really got a good balance of all the layers, with them all working really well together - and none of the flavours getting lost. The mocha / coffee is not too strong either - all three of my children tried them and none of them mentioned a coffee type taste - though I clearly could, being a lover of the stuff! They are a really interesting texture with the dusting, but it dies not come off or make your fingers messy - which I initially thought it might.
Nutritionally these are meant to be a treat, and, no surprise, being double dipped in chocolate they are high in sugar , but are low in salt / sodium. They are also not super moreish, meaning I did not feel that need to eat the whole lot for a change!
I would buy these again, but as they are quite pricey, they would be a treat or a gift rather than a weekly or even fortnightly purchase. They are quite different though and that is what I liked - unique, tasty, not too moreish and a great wee treat!
