When I saw the former Clodhoppers’ creators on The Dragons’ Den, my heart went out to them. A Canadian classic candy enjoyed by so many people… and the creators left out in the cold.
I heard their new candy product was showing up in stores across Canada so I wrote them and asked if they would send me some samples for review. The packages came in 24 hours! What sweethearts.
Thanks to Arlene Dickenson, who put up $250,000 for 50% of the company, their new product called OMG’s that come in white, milk and dark chocolate and are now being sold at Shoppers Drug Mart, Loblaws, Atlantic Superstores and Zehrs.
So what are OMG’s? Graham clusters with diced almonds and toffee bits covered in chocolate. They come in this small bite-sized clusters and I have to say, are absolutely delicious.
I have to say I think I like the dark chocolate version the best. It really helps emphasize the toffee and makes it shine. Not to say the milk chocolate is not amazing, it is!
What a wonderful treat and fantastic story. My only concern is, is this a completely new treat from Clodhoppers? It sounds very similar to me but then, I agree with Arlene, these guys are the real deal and I would be happy to buy these from them no matter what.
Not the prettiest candy in the world but as someone who does not even like graham crackers, they have turned me into a believer. I am not a huge candy fan but I love a great Canadian success story as much as I love toffee, which is saying a lot. I do adore toffee.
OMG’s are delicious and fun to eat. I even used the crumbs on top of brownies I made the other day and it took them to the OMG level! I give this product four and a half out of five wooden spoons.
