REVIEW: SOMA Strawberry Black Pepper Bar

Ahhh, SOMA. You can do me no wrong.

If you haven’t noticed, I’m a big fan of fruit and chocolate together, and clearly strawberries and chocolate are a well loved combination. SOMA kicked that beloved partnership up with a bit of black pepper, which intrigued me — one of my favourite summer dishes a few years ago was strawberries roasted with balsamic and pepper!

I was expecting a little sweet, a little spice, and of course, delicious smooth SOMA chocolate. What happened in my mouth, though, was salt. Lots and lots of salt. Not in a bad way, but when this bar touches your mouth, it’s the first thing you might notice. In fact, I didn’t really notice a lot of pepper at all.

The chocolate is deep and dark and smooth, the strawberries are chewy and sweet, and the flavours all combine in a really intense way — until they fade out almost as quickly. If you’re trying this one out, focus on the first few seconds of the taste experience, because that’s where all the fun is.
