Have you ever tried something that makes you want to scream from the rooftops and tell all your vegan and non-vegan friends about? Well, you’re in for a treat. Welcome to a world of delicious organic treats that are affordable and delicious. Trust me, I do not exaggerate when it comes to snacks. Rhythm 108 are a Swedish brand ready to take over the vegan scene with a vengeance and I for one would volunteer as a tribute if their snacks were waiting for me on the other side.
I first heard about Rhythm 108 through the hype around their tea biscuits (£0.49 at Aldi #bargain), obviously I had to reach out to see if the hype lived up to its name. And boy, did it. These are hand on heart, the tastiest, healthiest biscuits you will have that is gluten free, dairy free, organic and packed full of good ingredients. Do yourself a favour and buy one (or a couple!) Until then, let me tempt you by my review. Brace yourselves for all the goodness.
From the cookie range, I was sent the Coconut Cookie sharing tea bag. Now, a little disclaimer I am the biggest fan of coconut products so I had very big expectations. Needless to say, the coconut cookie hit all the right spots. The first time I took a bite I was shocked by how moist it was, it was slightly weird but the more I had it, the better it was and the more addicting it was. Final verdict: absolutely delicious. I don’t know how they get their biscuits to taste this good, but I and all the people I shared it with need the secret formula.
I also received the lemon + ginger biscuit packet – I don’t know how they constantly do it but this was a hit too – it was moist, tasty, full of flavour and just worked wonders.
I know what you’re thinking, it Is not possible to have such a glowing review – I know it shocked me as well but I say it as I see it… or taste it? Lol, the point being this is 100% factual.
New, Indulgent Organic Chocolate Bars
I was sent three chocolate bars to taste – the Hazelnut Praline, Sweet ‘N’ Salty Almond and Super Coconut.
Once again, the coconut shone through and the Super Coconut bar was my favourite of all the chocolate bars (hi coconut!). This was literally reminiscent of a bounty bar, the chocolate had the same texture and firmness as normal milk chocolate bars. It was my childhood all in one (I was a massive chocoholic!) I remember first tasting this chocolate bar and having happy flashbacks of bounty/ a good chocolate bar that doesn’t taste weird. Rhythm 108 nailed it.
The next bar I tried was the Sweet N Salty Almond and I must admit it was my least favourite bar due to personal taste – I am not a fan of sweet and salty things in chocolate so it was something I had to get used to but the chocolate bar itself was still amazing and the chocolate truffle‑y bit in the inside (woah.) The fact that it was an oat and almond filling just made it doubly delicious (ignoring the salty part).
Last but not least, the Hazelnut Praline did not meet my expectations of a snickers bar but that’s why I should have had no expectations lol. Regardless it was still all the chocolatey goodness I had come to love from the previous bars (+ I actually loved the addition of the hazelnut).
As you can tell Rhythm 108 had me at the first bite. I’m practically in love ‑so much so, that when I spotted the Double Choco-Hazlenut sharing bag in a health food store I had to pick it up. I had high expectations which it (again!) exceeded, it was delicious, a hit with non-vegans and the chocolate chips were so legit – I was in double chocolate heaven. I ate at least 80% of it, would have had some more but I wanted to share the love with my co-workers so they can experience just how good it was.
All in all, if you are looking for chocolate bars reminiscent of Mars, Bounty and other childhood after school chocolate days you have come to the right blog post. Combined with healthy kicks such as an “oat & almond filling”, “praline oat & quinoa” and an “oat & coconut filling”, tasty treats have never been so good for you.
Indulge. (I know I will)
