Australia’s gourmet Nomad brand releases its latest hot chocolate series
Australian-based confectionery brand Nomad Chocolate has gained key national distribution with Woolworths stores for its latest 45% West African dark hot chocolate, writes Neill Barston.
The Sydney business has specialised in creating a distinctive series of products that have been founded on an appreciation of the complex flavours in cocoa profiles, and are vegan, gluten-free, dairy free and preservative free.
As the company explained ingredients for its range, including chocolate bars, cacao nibs, and cocoa powder, are organic wherever possible, with its series continuing to expand.
Founder Nadja Malovic, who grew up in Bosnia, explains that she set up the company having originally becoming fascinated in the coffee sector, that led her to venture to Peru. While there, she discovered some inspiring chocolate that set her on the path to creating her own confectionery business of finely crafted products.
“We are a gourmet chocolate company that sells a variety of unique, barista-quality chocolate products. All our products are sourced from the finest cacao around the world. We appreciate the process of chocolate making and respect the cultural origins of cacao. In striving for the purest ingredients, our chocolate also happens to be entirely plant-based, vegan and gluten-free,” explained Nadja Malovic.
As she added, West Africa 45% Dark Hot Chocolate is a rich and luxurious hot chocolate crafted using premium cocoa sourced from the renowned cacao-growing region of West Africa. The cacao’s richness creates a deep chocolate flavour complemented with delightful, subtle notes of mountain maple and vanilla when mixed with milk. The drink is vegan, dairy, and gluten-free.
This is the first time Nomad’s products will be offered at Woolworths. The partnership between the two companies aims to provide Australians with greater access to high-quality drinking chocolate in time for the Autumn and Winter seasons.
“Consumers are indulging more at home during the pandemic, which why we intend to bring the cafe experience into the comfort of the home by offering our premium barista-quality products,” Nadja said.
“Nomad Chocolate presents chocolate in the purest form possible, free of fillers, emulsifiers, additives, and GMO. It is a labour of love and a product I am immensely proud of. I hope you enjoy tasting it as much as I enjoyed my journey in creating it.”
