OMG's Candy Close Up

When I’m having a rough day…

5 Comments

There are 2 things that I crave when I’m having a rough day.

1. Music (specifically, tracks 3, 4, 7, 9, 15 and 20 from the Essentially Naked album by Bif Naked)

2. Chocolate

Both of these things can make me feel better on any given day, but when I’m grumpy or upset they become must-have items. I’m not sure why, but music and chocolate are my favourites pick-me-ups. Maybe they release endorphins? I think I’ve heard that somewhere…

I recently came across a new chocolate confection at my grocery store and it has quickly become my new favourite treat.

OMG's Dark Chocolatey Graham Clusters

OMG’s are yummy and very addictive. I honestly could eat an entire bag in one sitting, which is probably terrible, but there you have it.

The company’s website describes OMG’s as “delicious milk and dark chocolatey graham clusters mixed with diced almonds and crunchy toffee bits.” While that combination might sound a bit weird, it’s actually fantastic. These yummy treats are sweet, crunchy, chocolatey, a tiny bit salty, and totally satisfying.

I had planned on taking photos of the milk chocolate version too, but they kept getting eaten before I had a chance to shoot them…

They come in 135g bags and are apparently available at Shoppers Drug MartLoblawsAtlantic SuperstoresRexallLondon Drugs and Zehrs. I bought mine from my local Real Canadian Superstore (a Loblaws grocery).

What do you do to make yourself feel better on a bad day? Let me know in the comments!

Fun Fact: The product was created by Chris Emery and Larry Finnson, who you might recognize as the creators of Clodhoppers. They were also on an episode of Dragon’s Den.

  1. Chocolate is always good:)

  2. I love these 🙂 My parents bought me a bag, and they were quickly devoured, so it’s good to know where I can get more! Personally, I’m a tea-and-cookies kind of girl when I’ve had a rough day.
