On a bright but icy cold morning, I drove out in the gorgeous Cotswold countryside to meet with Daniella Warner of OMmaZing Chocolates. I met Daniella last year at a networking event and had a taste of her marvellous delights!! I am not even a chocolate eater but a well made truffle or artisan dark chocolate will still make me melt!
So as Daniella made me a hot mug of coffee and gently pushed over some dark chocolate truffles. Of course I mumbled the obligatory “oh I shouldn’t, I’m on a diet” then popped one straight in my mouth.
Heaven!! Lightly dusted coating with a melt in the mouth middle…..I popped in another one. As I did this, Daniella mentioned ‘healthy eating’. What’s that? I’ve just shoved 3 truffles in my mouth!
‘Raw Energy Balls’ she said!! Daniella comes from a Holistic and Therapeutic background, hence the ‘OM’ in OMmaZing Chocolates, and has designed raw organic energy balls, which taste good and deliver powerful benefits for health and wellness. They are organic, dairy free, sugar free, vegetarian & vegan and each one will deliver a powerful nutritional punch…ideal for a quick healthy treat. Ideal for diabetics too! Raw chocolate bars with a choice of mixed dried fruit, nuts and seeds, such as pistachios, hazelnuts, brazil nuts, walnuts, almonds, cranberries, cherries, apricots and spices. This is what is offered in this range:
Raw Walnut & Cashew Energy Balls
Raw Cacao Ginger Energy Balls
Raw Coconut & Hot Spicy Energy Balls
Raw Chocolate Brownie Balls
Raw Marzipan balls covered in raw chocolate or dark chocolate.
Interesting to know! Delicious? You bet they are!!
Daniella is currently getting her game head on for Valentines day and is looking forward to a flurry of orders after a nice break from Christmas! Look at these heart shaped, pure dark chocolates! Packaged in black and gold box with a green raffia bow this is the ultimate decadence in Artisan Chocolate gifts for a loved one!
OMmaZing Chocolates new venture for this year is going to be Wedding Favours!! ChocoPops that can be initialled, wrapped in cellophane and tied in a ribbon with the colour of your choice to match your theme. At £1.50 per ChocoPop, this is a steal!!
Daniella is a trained Artisan Chocolatier. If you are interested in meeting with her to discuss your wedding or gift needs, be prepared for a lovely cuppa and chat and a tasting where she will discuss with you exactly how to design a bespoke chocolate favour JUST FOR YOU!!
I asked Daniella how she got into this delicious business……she went along on a course to support a friend! I just love how these things happen. When you fall into things like this I firmly believe in fate. The feedback she got from friends and family was that these should be made available to the public.
Her biggest supporter is her husband…although she says that’s only if he can stop eating them long enough! His favourite is her signature Salted Caramel Cup!! Her other biggest business supporter has been Sali Green who is well known in Cheltenham for her sunny and helpful nature. She runs the Promotional directory, Iwork4u Glos. Where you will also find myself!!
