I realized our review of Enjoy Life Boom CHOCO Boom Chocolate Bars needed a big update when I used the Ricemilk bars to make some delicious, allergy-friendly DIY Candy Bars.
I have sampled most of the dairy-free “milk” chocolates on the U.S. market, and each one has its merits. Some are quite sweet, hitting on cravings for white chocolate, while others are rich with cocoa buttery goodness. But the Enjoy Life Boom CHOCO Boom Ricemilk Chocolate Bars (pictured here) strike that perfect balance of sweet, but not overly sugary, and quite creamy. They are perhaps the closest I’ve tasted to dairy milk chocolate, and hit my taste buds just right with every bite. And as noted, these milky bars are perfect for making your own allergy-friendly candy bars.
For a little extra interest, Enjoy Life Boom CHOCO Boom Ricemilk Crunch Chocolate Bars are also available. These have the same wonderful milk chocolate vibe, but are “Nestle Crunch-style” with rice crisps throughout. The bars are a bit thicker than Nestles, providing a bit more chocolaty goodness with each crunch.
Finally, for those of you who like more cacao richness, there are Enjoy Life Boom CHOCO Boom Dark Chocolate Bars. These are just a wee bit darker than your average semi-sweet chocolate, and have a rich cocoa taste that isn’t the least bit chalky. I think this blend has a sweetness that seems delightful for young taste buds (including my own on those heavy sugar-craving days!), but is just dark enough to please dark chocolate-loving “grown-up” chocoholics.
And in case you were wondering, Enjoy Life Boom CHOCO Boom Chocolate Bars do work very well in baking! I made some Triple Chocolate Cowboy Cookies with chopped Ricemilk and Dark chocolate bars along with some Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet mini chips. The chocolate held its shape perfectly, and Tony declared these cookies some of the best he’d ever tasted.
Nonetheless, if you don’t want to take just our words for it, then perhaps this message from Go Dairy Free viewer Marian will sway you: “I tried the chocolate bars tonight from Enjoy Life . . . it’s the boom choco boom, dairy free rice milk with crispy rice bar and it was AWESOME! If you choose do review these products in the future, the reviewer will be a very lucky person.” The review is up and I’m sure everyone is eager to try this chocolate now Marian!
Unlike so many other brands, the Enjoy Life Boom CHOCO Boom Chocolate Bars are single-serve in size. They come in four sizable segments (shown here), and though they may seem slightly pricey, we frequently pick them up on sale and you can get them at a discount online in quantity.
