Honeycomb & Speculoo's wins Great Taste 2022 award!

We are so excited to announce that the Honeycomb & Speculoo's Choc Tiffin Bar wins Great Taste 2022 award!

Tasted by the experts, Honeycomb & Speculoo's from Oh My Choc is awarded a Great Taste [1-star] in 2022!

Oh My Choc has been named among the top food and drink producers globally this year, picking up a highly prized 1-star Great Taste award for our "Honeycomb & Speculoo's Tiffin Bar".

More than 14,000 products were put through the competition’s rigorous blind judging process; and Oh My Choc was dubbed "satisfying and delicious” at the world’s most coveted food and drink awards. 4,078 products were awarded a Great Taste 1-star – ‘food and drink that delivers fantastic flavour’, 1,237 were awarded a Great Taste 2-star – ‘above and beyond delicious’, and 241 were awarded a Great Taste 3-star – ‘extraordinarily tasty food and drink’.

The Chocolate Tiffin was a big hit with the Great Taste judges. It was described as:

"A tiffin with great texture, easy to cut and equally easy on the palate. We enjoyed the evident spicy caramel notes of the biscuits, the perceptible honeycomb notes, the grip of cacao and the final salinity. Rather irresistible.

"An attractive handmade rustic look to the bars with crushed biscuits on top. The range of textures is really satisfying from the smooth buttery elements to the crunch of the topping. Burnt caramel flavour comes through from the honeycomb and adds a delicious depth of flavour to this indulgent and vegan friendly bar."

Made with handmade Vegan honeycomb, Fair-Trade dark chocolate, caramelised Biscuits and a touch of sea salt to balance the flavours, the Honeycomb Speculoo's Choc Tiffin was one of 5,556 products to receive a Great Taste award in 2022 (which is only 39.1% of the total products entered).

What is Great Taste?

Recognised as a stamp of excellence and actively sought out by food lovers and retailers alike, Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, values taste above all else. All products in the line-up for judging are blind-tasted: every product is removed from its packaging so it cannot be identified, before entering a robust, layered judging process.

This year, the judging took place over 90 days across two judging locations (Dorset and London) with a panel of more than 500 judges. This year’s line-up saw food and drink products submitted from a staggering 110 different countries from across the world.

We are delighted to have won a Great Taste award for our Honeycomb & Speculoo's Tiffin. I have dreamt of this moment and am so proud to be adding the iconic black and gold Great Taste logo to our Vegan Tiffin Bar.Oh My Choc started from the home kitchen with the idea and passion to create the most indulgent vegan chocolate on the market, so to achieve this is amazing.

Being recognised with a Great Taste 1-star means so much to independent producers such as myself, as it makes all the hard work and determination worth it! Great Taste is the most recognised accolade for taste and quality in the food and drink world, so it really is a big win!
