Have you ever stepped into a doorway that instantly transported you to a place you’ve only read about in a book? My friend and I had this happen when we entered into a small but sweet smelling shop in downtown St. Johns.
We talked to the man behind the counter about what to try and he explained to me that their Neapolitan chocolate candy was unlike anything I’ve ever eaten. He carefully told me what was about to happen, but I was skeptical at best and I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t tried it for myself. I took a bite and waited. It actually tasted exactly as he said it would. Frist there was a strong strawberry flavor, then a nice dark chocolate, and then vanilla, and then back to strawberry. Not a blending of tastes, one completely replacing the other. The only time in my life I’d even heard of such a concept was in of the pages of my favorite childhood book. Yet here I was living literature, at in Oh Mi Organics.
One of the missions of Oh Mi Organics was to bring a healthy treats to people who couldn’t experience over the counter desserts or specialty items. What they’ve done is create new foods using exemplary ingredients with sustainable, respectable and honest methods that change peoples lives. Everything they produce at Oh Mi Organics is peanut free, gluten free and many options are dairy free. They have liberated food limited people to the world of chocolates, beverages, candies, homemade flavored hummus and more including vegan/nut free baked goods! For anyone who has experienced the burden of life with food limitation this shop is heaven sent.
The Neapolitan wasn’t the only wizardry that the shop had. We were implored to try the Rose Chocolate. The rose chocolate is only sold at the shop in St. Johns and is a chocolate that smells and tastes very normal…at first. A nice chocolate that is smooth and creamy. Then exactly sixty seconds after eating it every breathe in brought with it a smell of roses. No strong, but very distinct. As if I were in a flower shop. Subtle and gentle the Rose chocolate brought me to the bright sun of distant summer gardens. It was unbelievable, well unbelievable if you were any place other than Oh Mi Organics.
